After coming off one of the most memorable wins in their brief history against New York, the Union were recently subjected to a painful loss against Dallas. A 2-2 draw may not technically be a loss but it was a loss of 2 valuable points for the Union along with their solid second place position in the league. This game has now left the Union behind New York once again. The loss in confidence of the new starting goalkeeper, Zac MacMath, after his huge mistake towards the end of the game against FC Dallas is yet another loss suffered. This game was a crucial one, especially since they will be losing their leading goal scorer of the season, Jack McInerney, as he is set to be leaving for 3 weeks to take part in the Gold Cup. Although the tie against Dallas was a rough one for the team, it is now their job to recover and look to getting a result in their next match.
