Goal from Brian Brown and Pedro Ribeiro saw the Union defeat Kansas City 2-1 in the final home game of the season.
Two goals scored in seven minutes. Three goals conceded in four minutes. And that’s the end of the 2014 season.

The Union turned in a valiant effort, but eventually gave up two goals in extra time as the visiting Seattle Sounders took home the 2014 US Open Cup.
While the Union were left to rue conceding two soft goals, Jim Curtin can again take pride in the grit and determination of his side after they fought back for a 2-2 draw.
