Air Force vs. USC final score: Trojans too much for Falcons, win 18-7

USC pulled away over Air Force in the second half to earn trip to NCAA finals.

As expected, the USC Trojans were able to dispatch the Air Force Falcons, and advance to the NCAA finals, where they will be looking for their fifth-straight NCAA title. The Trojans pulled away in the second half to ultimately win 18-7.

Air Force came out strong and took advantage of a sloppy USC team and actually held a 2-1 lead after Josh Steadman and Cruz Smithson scored a pair of back-to-back games. The Trojans then shook off the bad play and led 5-2 in the second quarter, Air Force did cut it to 5-3. USC then put their offense together and scored six straight goals to comfortable go ahead of the Falcons.

USC felt so comfortable that they brought in their backup goalie Ely Bonilla to earn some playing time. The drop off was not there as he played just as good as starter James Clark by blocking six shots, which was two more than Clark.

Air Force goalie Mike Fish did his best to keep the Falcons in the game with 12 saves, so the game could have been even more of a blowout if they had someone in the cage.

USC was led by Kostas Genidounias who had five goals, while Marc Vonderweidt and Nikola Vavic had a hat trick.
