In the 60th minute, Leaford Allen found Arora streaking down the seam on a throw-in and Arora buried his second of the match. Less than two minutes later, Zachary Zitoli picked up his own rebound to score his second tally of the season.
The Hawks scored their fourth goal of the match in the 66th minute after they stopped a St. Clair free-kick and used their world-class speed on the counter-attack. Allen found Max Ferrari streaking towards the box and after being tackled by a Saints defender, Ferrari scored his first career goal from his backside.
