The Indians then responded with goals from Zay-Zay Gilewala (Monrovia, LIBERIA) and Nathan Zuzga (Troy, MI) to salvage a 2-2 tie at the half. Boyd struck again in the 53rd minute with his second of the night, fourth on the year. Larin Wilski (Macomb Township, MI) gave FMU a two-goal advantage with just under 10 minutes to play.
