The Bishops jumped on top early on a score by sophomore midfielder Craig Aronoff (Potomac, Md./The Bullis School), but the Bulldogs evened the game just 19 seconds later on Jeff Ivey's unassisted goal and took a 2-1 lead on a score by Ryan Knautz.

After the teams traded goals, the Bishops evened the game at 3-3 on a goal by senior midfielder Trevor Jones (Flanders, N.J./West Morris Mendham) with 5:55 left in the first quarter.
