HOW IT HAPPENED
The Huskies got on the board first at the 21:26 minute mark when Jonathan Bobe won the ball in the midfield and passed it up the sideline to find Sam Anderson who took a shot from about 15 yards out and found the back of the net.
About three minutes later, Anderson beat the keeper a second time for his sixth goal of the season. Qutaiba Hassoon passed the ball into the middle which got through a few Beaver defenders and found Anderson's feet.
Anderson wasn't done there as he found the twine again in the second half after beating the keeper in a one on one matchup.

At the end of the second half, Job Randolph collected a failed clear from USM and found the twine. The Beavers late push came up short as the Huskies held on to the 3-2 victory.
