In the second game, Long Beach State's defensive dominance continued. La Verne scored their only goal of the game in the first quarter, but the 49ers still held the lead at 3-1. The 49ers poured it on the rest of the way to take a convincing 19-1 win over La Verne to close out the Inland Empire Classic.
