Filipe Vilela had a header from some 10 yard out go straight into the arms of Bermuda goalkeeper Jahquil Hill.
Bermuda would however take the lead when Lejuan Simmons scored in the 35th minute, a ball forward saw Cecoy Robinson challenge the Oakville goalkeeper Matt George, who could not hold onto the ball and hit fell to the feet of Simmons who slammed his shot past a defender on the goalline and into the back of the net.
Vilela equalized for Oakville in the 42nd minute when he squeezed between two Bermuda defenders to score a header from a corner.
The second half proved much like the first with Oakville having a lot of possession, but not forcing many saves, both teams made constant changes to their line up with substitutes coming in fast.
Deondre Wainwright had a chance to give Bermuda the lead, but his shot from just outside the box went well over the top with the goalkeeper stranded on the edge of the box.
A foul on the edge of the Bermuda box resulted in a free kick for the Oakville Blue Devils, but the shot hit the wall with Bermuda substitute goalkeeper Quinaceo Hunt collecting.
In stoppage time Osagi Bascome had a long range strike that just went over the bar. Just as the announcer was stating that if the game was to end 1 – 1 it would be decided, Lejuan Simmons would score his second and Bermuda’s second, and a minute later Bermuda would score again with Jenico Seley finding the back of the net.
