In what was almost an identical goal, Potvin gave his team a two goal lead in the 26th minute. The Reserves cut the lead to one in the 30th minute, when Jonathon Czackowski bent a free kick into the top corner of the net past Juventus keeper Jonathan DeGrazia. Skander Babay restored the two goal lead for Juventus in the 33rd minute after converting a penalty shot. Cameron Wilson scored in the 64th minute for the Reserves, but that was as close as they would get as Juventus went on to take control of the game and score three more unanswered goals. Juventus Defender Angelo Papa was shown a red card and sent off in the 79th minute, after receiving his second yellow card of the game.
