A Lion foul in the penalty area late in the game awarded the Falcons with a penalty kick.  Senior Josiah Berni took the penalty kick and was intially denied by the Lion goalkeeper, but followed up the deflected rebound and scored to give the Falcons a 2-1 advantage that they held onto for the final margin of victory.
