Kingston scored the first goal of the game but Howard would tack two on the board before the end of the half.   

Howard's Neyder Gonzalez-Galvez had an assist and a goal to put Howard up 2-1.   The first goal came from Yefri Mendez-Baltazar an a cross from Gonzalez-Galvez.   

The second goal come off a hard shot by Gonzalez-Galvez that went under the Kingston keepers hands with just one minute left in the half. 

Howard would take a 3-1 lead with 18 minutes left in the game when Gonzalez-Galvez scored off a give and go with Christian Garcia.
