Goldsmith’s first goal came in the end of the first half with an assist from Charlie Constantino.

The Jaguars kept pace with one goal in the first half and another goal in the second to send the game into overtime.

In the second minute of overtime, Goldsmith got a pass from Vincent Mitchell and Eric Leonard to score the go-ahead goal to win the game for the Bulldogs.
