Legacy came out strong at first and it took all the luck in Fort Collins for Fossil Ridge to avoid conceding in the first 30 minutes. Despite many very near chances, a couple wasted opportunities, and some unmade calls the Lightning were unable to find the back of the net. With five minutes left FRHS found a lucky bounce against the run of play to go up 1-0. It took LHS two minutes to equalize before the break. Legacy found more chances in the second half including drawing a penalty kick which was later called back, but only delayed the inevitable as Legacy found the goal a final time just before the game ended.
