The Bold controlled large segments of the first half but struggled to create dangerous scoring chances. The best opportunity came from Ates Diouf in the 15' who couldn't squeeze his left-footed shot past goalkeeper Kyle Ihn. RGV forward Edwards put the Toros on the board after he nodded in a lofted ball from an Isidro Martinez freekick in the 41'.
Austin searched for an equalizer in the second half with Billy Forbes missing the mark in the 48' and Aldo Quintanilla unable to put his header on target in the 83'. Deep into stoppage time, RGV was awarded a penalty when Jiminez was brought down in the box. Obregon stepped up to the spot converted with a right-foot shot to the top left corner.
