The Knights' Amadou Sy – who has been the team's offensive sparkplug all year – notched his fifth goal of the year at 71:34 to tie the game at one apiece.
Neither team was able to score for the remainder of regulation, and both schools failed to find the game-winner in the two overtime periods, as the Knights and Defenders would settle for a 1-1 tie.
