LSUS (2-1) broke the scoreless game during the 66th minute as Alex Curry scored unassisted to put the Pilots on top 1-0. Later in the half defender Nick Montz crossed a pass to Alan Arroyo who scorched it with his left foot for the second and final goal of the contest as it sizzled past the keeper.
LeTourneau (0-1) struggled to find the back of the net in their season opener but had plenty of chances as they outshot the Pilots 22-18 overall as LSUS' keeper Lance Quini was stellar in the net minding the goal for his first shutout of the season while saving seven.
