The Scots, however, were unable to keep the Pioneers out of the net in the first half, conceding the first goal in the 12th minute. A stretch of solid play was broken when Grinnell netted their second goal of the day in the 75th minute.

Monmouth tried to rally late when sophomore Roble Mohammed placed a through ball to sophomore Lucas Sondgeroth who found the back of the net with 3:40 left on the clock.
