90+6’- Final Whistle! What another multi-score game. This is one exciting team to watch.

90+5’- Aaronson brings the ball into the box, Harriel is able to pick up the rebound and then send the ball into the back of the net. This is his first MLS career goal and everyone is in the corner celebrating him including Blake who came all the way up field.

85’- Play is stopped after Carranza gets an elbow to the head. Training staff is out to look at him because of it being a head injury.

81’- Dwyer and Martinez are getting into each other’s faces. Blake even comes all the way down to try and cool things down. Dwyer and Martinez enter the book for the altercation.

80’- Nice sequence here by the Union. Burke chases the ball down and then they were able to find the open man at the top of the box. However, the shot goes wide of the net.

75’- Atlanta making a change by bringing on a second striker here with Dwyer coming into the game.

70’- Carranza is taken down inside the penalty area, the ref says play on.

67’- Atlanta couldn’t get clearance and Gazdag gets a wide-open shot and converts it. It is his 17th of the season and a Union regular season record.

65’- Martinez (Union) with patent long shot that goes sailing into the River End. It needs to happen at least once a game.

45+4’- Halftime whistle and the teams are heading to the locker room.

45+2’- Union corner from the near flag. Their 4th corner is sent to the backside of the penalty area and Uhre sends it towards the net. The ball takes a deflection and goes to the top of the net. This puts him into the double digit category with 10 goals this season.

45+1’- We will have at least 4 minutes of stoppage time here.

43’- Another free kick here for the Union, this one is from way further out. As Wagner gets ready to take it Gutman falls to the ground and the ref blows the whistle. After the service is hit the Union is whistled for a foul.

41’- Free kick for the Union. Wagner’s service from the far right is sent into the box and finds Elliott’s head, who sends it over the bar.

39’- Atlanta’s 5th corner turns into a counterattack for the Union. It was a pretty good chance as Gazdag’s shot is kicked off the line to keep the game level.

38’- Bedoya is shown a Yellow card for a little ‘rough’ tackle. Okay not really little.

35’- Corner is coming up for Atlanta. But before that happens Martinez is getting up slowly and jogging into position while holding his midsection. The corner is played towards the near post and is blocked by the Union.

31’- Back-to-back corners here for the Union. The first one is played towards the far post and the save goes out of play. The second is played towards the near post but requires Atlanta’s goalkeeper to dive on top of the ball to retain possession.

27’- Blake comes out and takes out another Atlanta player. Purata takes an elbow to the head from the Union goalkeeper. Replay shows an issue as he went down with his leg, he is also up and holding his back. Meanwhile, a United player is warming up on the sideline.

25’ Ugh! After a fantastic save by Blake with a stretched hand. Atlanta’s center-back Gutman makes a diving header to create the equalizer.

18’- GOOOAAAL by Carranza! The shot off the second ball comes from Carranza who rips one from outside the penalty area. This is his 14th goal of the season.
