Later in the game, the Union would have some very golden chances to take the lead. The best opportunity came in stoppage time from Kacper Przybylko, but he would miss the net by inches.

After the game, Przybylko would show his frustration by kicking the trash can on the way to the locker room. He knew that he should have scored the game-winning goal.

The game would end in a 1-1 draw, This was a game that the Union should have won, but instead, they just could not finish their chances to score.
