The Raiders responded two minutes later when Chase Estes scored his second goal of the season. The goal tied the game at one. In the 31st minute, BU’s Anthony Schlee was awarded a penalty kick after he was fouled by a Raider defender.

In the 57th minute, the Raiders extended the lead when Harry Kershaw scored, which stretched the Raider lead to 3-2.
