On Monday night, early goals by Taine Paton and Matt Fairweather had helped the Braves to a 2-1 in a thrilling second match of the series. Both goals came inside the opening 12 minutes, while Justin Reid-Ross pulled a goal back two minutes from time.

The Braves had won the first encounter 1-0 at Riverside last week through a Haley penalty stroke.
