Garrett traveled to Leo Monday for the final ACAC game of the 2012 season with a chance to move into a 1st place conference tie, but fell short to Leo by a score of 2-1. The game was close throughout with Leo taking a 1-0 lead with only 8 minutes to go before half. Trailing only by a goal at half, Garrett was poised to take the win when Karsten Cooper scored for Garrett 13 minutes into the second half to tie the game 1-1. The two teams each had several chances, but neither team could score. It looked like the game might be headed to overtime when with less than 7 minutes to play a Leo shot took a strange bounce in front of the goal and somehow went in giving Leo the victory. The loss left Garrett at 2-2 in the conference. It is only the second time Garrett has finished ACAC play without a losing record.
