The Eaglets retook the lead 2-1 with 23 minutes remaining in the half with penalty kick and would add one more goal for a 3-1 halftime lead.

OLSM would make it 4-1 five minutes into the second half and pushed the lead to 5-1 before Jernigan found the net with just over a minute remaining to make the final 5-2

Dexter finishes with a 9-9-2 overall record.
