Vermont's Mayowa Tolla-Isaac and Chance Bukoski each netted twice. Bukoski scored both goals in the first half, the first being a clean finish as the ball was sent into a threatening area in front of the oppositions' net. Bukoski's second was a beautiful curling finish sent far post after Albany keeper Evan Mendes redirected a shot from Voltage defender Mitch Garcia.
The second half showcased a different Voltage squad, comprised mostly of Vermont players vying for a starting position. Forward Mayowa Tolla-Isaac put away two goals in the second half, first picking the pocket of Albany's defender and coolly passing the ball home and the second being a clean, one-touch finish after Darko Nicolic sent a great ball into Albany's box.
