The Union simply could not find the back of the net and looked bound to pick up a bad loss as the season winds down. Then, for the second match in a row, the Union netted a late goal to salvage the game. After winning on a stoppage time goal last week, the Union tied things in the 89th minute on a Jack McInerney header.
The goal was McInerney's first in 17 games and his 11th of the season, moving him into a tie with Conor Casey for the team lead. McInerney would be carded for excessive celebration following the goal, as he ripped off his jersey, but it would make no difference, he had saved the day for the Union, allowing them to escape the match with a crucial point.
The Union now sit in sixth, the first squad out of the playoffs, but are tied in points with fourth place Montreal and fifth place Chicago. The Union will now head to Montreal on October 19, in a crucial match that will most likely determine whether or not they make the playoffs. Two matches remain in the season, time for one last playoff push!
