Quartz Hill were able to counterattack the Bulldogs from all sides of the field. The speed of the wingers allowed for multiple opportunities from the forwards and attacking midfielders to move up closer to the box and by doing so, forcing defenders to step up and allowing the forwards move into more scoring opportunities.

In the 20th minute of the first half, the bulldogs defense were able to clear a dangerous ball inside the box, however, Victor Jimenez was able to pass the ball to Jaxson Oliver, whom took a long shot from about 40 yards away to score a screamer! The away crowd were so loud that you would of thought that this was a home game for the Rebels.
