The Rest

The Union offense struggled against San Jose and showed it needs help

Brotherly Game at related • 0 views

The opportunity lost against the Earthquakes falls squarely on the offense.

The Union defense failed to hold a late lead against the San Jose Earthquakes despite a one-man advantage but the blame should not rest on the young unit. Certainly the one-on-one defending of Warren Creavalle and Josh Yaro left a lot to be desired as did Keegan Rosenberry's statue-esque reaction on the goal, but the Union offense was even more anemic throughout the match and needs a good look in the mirror, or at least a shot chart.
