The Monarchs played a great game. They had no cards and controlled the scoring from the get go. While Union S.C. did compete, The club had sub-par performances from Conor Casey and Sasha Kljestan and these are grounds for concern. Donovan Ricketts did collect his first shut out of the season, but was hardly challenged all night in his game. Union S.C. really wanted this game. Besides playing against the defending champions, this game also was to serve as a confidence boost to the new season. The Blues will have to forget this one and focus on its next match.
