The Switchbacks caught a break in the 63rd minute as Shane Malcolm was taken down in the box minutes after coming on. Jordan Burt would convert from the spot to cut the Energy lead to 2-4. The Switchbacks would earn a second penalty in the 72nd minute as Frater was taken down. Frater would then have his penalty saved but would finish the rebound. The Switchbacks would make an effort to equalize as an extra four minutes of stoppage time were played.
