FNU is loaded with international talent with only one student athlete being from the states. As the game progressed still at 0-0, Rodrigo Costa a sophomore from Brazil scored an unassisted goal to start off the day for the two teams, 1-0 FNU up. Seconds later the Lions recovered the ball, Heriberto Diaz dishes it to forward, Mazvita Chidarara and ties 1-1 30 minutes into the game. FNU scored back to back goals from Sebastian Aldunate to give them a 4-1 lead. Right before halftime the Lions gut the gap when Diaz and Chidarara again got in a great opportunity to score, this time it was Diaz capitalizing off the assist from Chidarara. The game in reach at 5-2 for the Lions, they had a solid 17 minutes of defense not allowing the high paced offense from Florida score. After making some substitutes, FNU finished by scoring three more goals, handing the SAGU Lions an 8-3 loss.
