Willamette struck for their first goal with just over a minute gone when Jesse Thompson caught Evergreen keeper Angel Guerra out of his box and chipped it over him for an easy goal. The Geoducks would answer right back with a goal by Tanner Williams in the sixth minute but Tyler Yates scored the game winner for the Bearcats in the 53rd minute to drop Evergreen to 0-3 with a 2-1 win.
The Geoducks had their chances but could not capitalize. Williams earned a penalty kick in the 60th minute but Braydon Calder made the save to preserve the Bearcats lead. Evergreen applied pressure the rest of the way but could never break through despite out shooting Willamette 14-10.
