The last Indians goal of the half came at 18:17 when Saner got the nod thanks to a pass from Hazard.

Halifax battled its way back as it finished the first half with two unanswered goals, cutting the Juniata lead to 3-2 at the intermission.

But the second half belonged to the Indians as they outscored Halifax 3-0 in the stanza.

Hazard, Saner and Mason Beward all notched goals.
