About 10 minutes later the Golden West defense had a breakdown in communication as the goalkeeper Misha Marson called for the ball in the 18yd box but his defender try to head the ball out. The header led to a MiraCosta (1-1-2) goal as Cole Simes was able to loft the ball over Marson for a one hopper into the net to tie the match at 1-1 in the 18th minute.
