Menlo recorded seven shots in the first half, with five on goal. The Oaks got on the board with three minutes remaining in the half when Beary, a former Cal Pac Newcomer of the Year, scored on an assist from Eli Bunton.

Alex Coates-McDowall stopped five shots, four in the second half as the Bobcats were on the attack over the final 45 minutes. Coates-McDowall made his final save in the last two minutes of the contest.
