A scoreless opening 45 minutes resulted in just a shot on goal per side, then the Union gained control with Brenden Aaronson and Jamiro Monteiro closing down any space that Dallas created. Meanwhile the home side countered with speedy wingers that looked to keep the Union outside backs out of the offensive attack. As a result, Reggie Cannon found space and added to the Dallas attack countless times, and allowing for secondary runs near the Union’s box.
