However, with twelve minutes to go in the first half, Ulises Ordoñez scored a goal for the Knights to even things up with Pisgah at the half, 1-1.
After North celebrated their ten seniors during the break, the two teams couldn’t get things going on offense and ended regulation at a 1-1 tie.
In overtime, the Knight offense got the ball rolling with a goal from Jouse Santos three minutes into in the extra time period. It was Santos striking again minutes later to give North a sizeable 3-1 lead.
Senior Michael Guido scored a goal of his own with a minute to go in overtime to finish off the North’s big win by a score of 4-1.
