The win came after Forward Brandon Morales scored the second goal in the game in minute 55. The first goal was scored by Defender Ian Pilcher in minute 22.

The Charlotte 49ers will now advance to the NCAA Division I Men’s Soccer Tournament, with the tournament bracket set to be announced on Monday at 1 p.m.
