With the Union three points out of fifth place entering September, every game becomes crucial and tonight's match against fourth place Toronto is no different. Despite the Union being in seventh and Toronto being in fourth, only three points separate them heading into tonight's game. The Union would really like to get at least four out of six points from this series with Toronto, and a win tonight would be a big help in doing that.

Can they pull it out? We'll see. Comment on the game in the thread below. Go Union! DOOP!
