Coming into the match-up against the Rowdies, Memphis held the top spot in the conference with 35 points on the season with Louisville City trailing close behind at No. 2 in conference.

Jake LaCava proved to be a problem for Memphis. LaCava first scored in the 34th minutes, able to capitalize off of a shot rebound, making Trey Muse pay.
