After an early Juventus goal in the 7th minute of the game and a key diving save late in the first half by Lions goalkeeper Steve Sawatzky which kept the margin at one, the Lions trailed 1-0 at halftime.

Both the Lions and Juventus traded opportunities early in the second half, off goal line clearances.

Moments later, Lions midfielder Dominic Antonini scored in the 72nd minute on an impressive strike which would end up being the game winner, giving the Lions the 2-1 lead.  

In the final minutes of the second half, Lions striker Brendan Rattai secured the Lions victory closing the scoring in the game with a goal in the 83rd minute, making the score 3-1 Lions.

Lions midfielder David McPhail was named the games MVP.
