In the second half, Centenary tied the match on Volanski’s scored controversial goal, after IUPUI goalkeeper David Barszczowski asked the referee a question and was out of position. In the 83rd minute, Volanski was back at it again as he gave the Gents a short lived lead, after connecting on his eighth goal of the year.


However, in the final four minutes of the match, IUPUI still had some fight in them as it scored twice to dash the Gents hopes.
