The sophomore scored his second of the game in the 59th minute when redshirt junior Andrew Sauers made a throw in from the sidelines. Reaching Dyson in the middle of the box, the sophomore headed it in at the near post for the goal, 3-0.
In the 87th minute, Dyson appeared to score his third goal of the match, but was called for offside before celebrating with the homecoming crowd in the parking lot.
