It was 2-0 at the break and Scarborough continued to press in the second half until midfielder Neven Radakovic struck for a 3-0 lead at 56 minutes.

York Region cut the lead to 2-1 at 82 minutes with a goal by forward Mahmoud Mehdi and Mehdi almost scored an equalizer with a strong drive from 20 yards on the right wing just before the final whistle, but the ball skimmed the left post with Serbian White Eagles goalkeeper Dan Pelc well beaten.
