But while that happened the Union defense held firm and kept the fast-starting Crew off of the scoreboard. In their second game together, the pairing of Auston Trusty and Jack Elliott looked more assured and were able to keep Zardes at bay.

While it would be good that the team would be playing their kids, it wouldn’t bode well for a team that needs to win now following their investment in David Accam earlier this offseason.
