It was a span of about five minutes, and it signaled the meaningful end of the Union's season. With the Union holding a 2-0 lead after Andrew Wenger scored in the 75th minute, they were jolted by a three-goal flurry that ensured they would miss the MLS playoffs for the fourth time in their five-year existence. That display of offense led the Columbus Crew to a 3-2 win over the Union before a stunned crowd of 15,849 at PPL Park. With the loss and the New York Red Bulls' win over Toronto on Saturday, the Union were eliminated from playoff consideration with two games remaining.
