Tonight’s attendance: 18,540

82’ There’s a scuffle in front of the Sons of Ben after Fafa Picault goes in hard trying to get to the ball on the end line that Cristian Roldan was shielding out. Yellow card to Fafa.

77’ Fafa Picault into the game for Brenden Aaronson

57’ It’s Skillsinho time. Ilsinho into the game for Sergio Santos.

33’ Jack Elliott with a huge tackle to deny Seattle what was shaping up to be a threatening counter attack.

28’ Union with some really bright attacking moments so far. Brenden Aaronson has been especially lively in the final third with a pretty pass back in the box to Kacper, whose shot went wide of the target and this steal and shot that Stefan Frei did well to save.
