Rosenberry and Yaro finally settled down, and Jack Elliott began to put his stamp on the game. C.J. Sapong had two near misses on goal – hitting one shot off the post and another just wide.
The game began to tilt more toward the Union late as Picault seemed to somehow gather steam and Marcus Epps was introduced into the fold. Still, it looked like Klejstan’s tally was enough to sink the Union’s Open Cup hopes before a late Roland Alberg goal – courtesy of a terrific pass from Elliott – ensured that the two rivals would play at least 30 more minutes.
