The were down 2-0 and came back with 3 goals in the final 20 minutes, including the game winner with less than one minute to play. It was a real thriller and the team showed a lot of character in coming back despite fatigue and several injuries (they played four 80 minute games in a 30 hour period). They had won their group with two 3-0 victories against teams from Rhode Island and North Carolina and a 1-1 tie against a team from Maryland.
