In the second league match of the day, Sporting Carlisle dropped a close and hard fought match against hosts IUP. Before the game started, IUP had the advantage of being fresh, and playing a tired Sporting team. IUP scored the first two goals of the game, and looked to be cruising towards a victory. However, Nicky Schwab converted a penalty in the closing minutes, and Sporting nearly scored in the final minute but it was not to be. It is the first loss for Sporting in 14 games. With the loss, Sporting drops into third place in the league behind IUP and Shippensburg.
