"We had the same score from our first game but we got there in a very different way," said Santa Clara head coach Jerry Smith. "In the first game against Cal, the four goals bailed out a very average and mundane performance by the team. In game two, I thought we deserved the victory that we got. In other words, we worked hard to be a good attacking team and that generated many scoring chances. We felt much better about our performance in game two."
Despite the 4-1 final, the Broncos fell behind early in the match. The Breeze applied pressure to Santa Clara's back line and scored an early goal. The Broncos were missing three regulars for the match. Morgan Marlborough was with the U-23 team while Dani Weatherholt and Andi Tostanoski were with the U-20s.
