Kenyon answered again, however, with three straight goals again and led 8-4 at the half.
#Ashley Johnson# scored two quick goals for BSC to open the second half and cut the lead to 8-6, but Kenyon scored four straight to go up 12-6. #Alexis Sweda# and Johnson were able to find the net after that to cut it to 12-8, and Kenyon scored again after that, but so did BSC (another goal from Griffin) to bring the score to 13-9 in favor of Kenyon. Three more goals from Kenyon pushed the lead to 16-9 before the Panthers' final score of the game from Griffin, and KC scored three more down the stretch to win 19-10.
