Rich Gordon (Hamburg/Hamburg) put the Bengals on the scoreboard with a shot to the upper right corner off of a pass from Richard Namulala (Kenmore/Kenmore West). Matt Ketchum (Churchville/Churchville-Chili) evened the score in the 38th minute on a one-timer from Josh Mitchell (Schenectady/South Colonie). Cortland's penalty kick goal was the lone marker of the second half.
