Your starting eleven for the Union.

‘Twas a beautiful evening for soccer on the riverfront.

Andre Blake watches on.

From the opening whistle the Union enjoyed nice spells of possession.

Accompanied by some solid defense, it was an encouraging start for the boys in blue.

After 15 minutes with no end product the tides began to turn.

Finally Orlando’s Dom Dwyer breaks through with a tidy finish to put the visitors up 1-0. Much to the displeasure of some…

Aerial duel.

Orlando’s attacks coming in waves.

Rookie forward Chris Mueller slaloms through the backline¬†with Messi-esque grace, fires a shot, and…

….Celebrates like Ronaldo.

2-0. Half time. Trying to stay positive.

Accam pushes a shot just wide of the target.

Andre Blake with another solid match in goal. If only he could score the goals too.

The second half begins and fouls came early and often. Joe Bendik takes exception to one.

Sapong rises to win a header over OCSC’s Will Johnson.

David Accam looked most likely to bag a goal for The U, although found it difficult to find breathing room.

In the dying embers of the match, Sapong looks for a consolation goal.

Full-time whistle blows. 2-0 to the visitors. 

Onto the next one…
