Ten minutes into the 2nd half, George Fernandez added an insurance goal when he flicked in a goal after a nice set up play by Hernandez. Thompson was also credited with an assist on the play.
Hoffmann got the Pioneers on the board in the 89th minute when he worked off the body of a defender, turned, and delivered a shot top shelf past the goalie.
