The Spartans would strike again with the equalizer seven minutes later as sophomore Taylor Hosley served a ball into the six-yard box from the far side of the field. Junior Alex Besl, on a run to the far post, was able to get a head on the ball, sending it into the back of the net to knot the score at 2-2 in the 80th minute of play.
