Jack Elliott named IBX Live Fearless Union vs. San Jose Earthquakes Man of the Match

Jack Elliott continues to impress out on the pitch, and against San Jose Earthquakes, he put forth one of his best efforts in a Rookie of the Year caliber season.

In the 35th minute, with the Union trailing 1-0, Haris Medunjanin put in a cross off a short corner. The ball landed in a mass of people and bounced around before it found the foot of Elliott. He took a shot with his left foot, but it was blocked. Coming right back at him, he fired a shot with his right, and roofed it into the net for his first goal of his MLS career. It was also the first goal by a Union defender since Oguchi Onyewu’s goal against DC United on May 13.

In the 55th minute, Elliott once again got on the right side of a corner kick. Medunjanin served in a pass, and Elliott redirected his cross with a header. The ball fell right to Roland Alberg’s feet, who rifled a shot into the lower corner of the net to give the Union a 2-1 lead.
