The first half featured both teams shaking the preseason rust off offensively as each team managed to put one shot on goal a piece. The second half was more lively for both teams but the Rustlers were able to capitalize on one of their three shots on goal in the second half as Martin Rafael scored in the 68th minute thanks to the assist by Ronaldo Escudero.
