In the first half, both the Union & Sounders would have some good scoring chances but both goalies were up for the test. Andre Blake would make a couple saves and would make a big one that would stop scoring chance by the Sounders. This game would be scoreless at halftime. Union had their chances to score but just could not finish.
The Union would open the second half with a very golden chance to score by Brenden Aaronson and it would miss the net by inches. In the 56th minute, Yellow would come out for Seattle, then the Union would make their first Sub as IISinho enters the match for Santos. There would times in the second half that the referee would miss some obvious calls and the crowd at Talen Energy Stadium would not approve of his decisions. llsinho would make some jaw-dropping plays with his footwork
