The team went up 13–3 at halftime, with contributions from fifth-year quarterback Jimmy Underdahl, who completed 15 of 20 passes over 235 yards in addition to a one-yard touchdown run.

In the second half, the play of the night saw third-year receiver Dallas Boath secure a touchdown for Calgary after catching a 65-yard toss from rookie quarterback Josiah Joseph in his first play from scrimmage. The Dinos ended the night with a 37–13 win over Regina.

After a 1–0 loss against cross-province rival University of Alberta Golden Bears on August 24, the Dinos men’s soccer team regained their focus the next day to defeat the MacEwan University Griffins in an easy 4–0 win.
