For a while, it looked like the Union were going to win their first game since August of last year but instead settled for a draw versus the Montreal Impact. The Union went up 3-0 in the first 40 minutes of the game, but Montreal crawled their way back into the game with 3 goals in the last 50 minutes.

It was a dream start for the Union, in the 5th minute, CJ Sapong picked up a loose ball, played it to Roland Alberg who dribbled around one defender and then scored his first goal of the season. CJ Sapong doubled the lead in the 23th minute after Menunjanin crossed a ball to the far post, where Chris Pontius headed it back across goal, allowing CJ Sapong to have an easy header. Then in the 37th minute, Jack Elliott picked up a penalty kick for the Union after being foul in the box. Alberg converted the pk for his 2nd goal of the game.

A couple minutes before the half, the Impacts started their comeback after Ignacio Piatti weaved his way through the Union defense and got a shot off that went past Blake to make it 3-1. In the 69th minute, during a counter attack, Montreal floated a beautiful cross into the box, where Anthony Jackson-Hamel headed it past Blake to make it 3-2, still in favor of the Union. Montreal completed their comeback in the 87th minute after a rebound from a Blake’s save found the feet of Anthony Jackson-Hamel, who scored his second goal of the game to make it 3-3.

The Union end their 3 game homestand with just 1 point out of 9. Leaving them in last in the East, 4 points behind 10th place, Montreal. Next week game is an away game vs the LA Galaxy.
