Julio Vargas Luna was able to out manuever the defender and kick it into the left side of the goal just out of Dallas City goalie's reach.
The 3rd goal of the game came during stoppage time in the 90' minute. In similar fashion to the 2nd goal Dallas City desperate for a goal was short on defenders getting back.
