For almost the entire second half, it looked like the Union were en route to a 1-0 win that was just like their other wins this season: a combination of strong defense and an opportunistic goal. But in the closing moments, the Seattle Sounders tore up the script. Alvaro Fernandez's header in traffic deflected off the right post and into Faryd Mondragón's net in stoppage time of the second half, giving the Seattle Sounders a 1-1 draw with the Union at a rain-swept PPL Park.

There is no other way to spin this. Yes, FC Dallas is among the best teams in Major League Soccer, but many in the Union locker room treated Saturday's 2-2 draw at PPL Park as a loss. And for good reason. This is one the Union simply let get away. They had a man advantage from the 68th minute on, and took a 2-1 lead in the 87th minute on Aaron Wheeler's first career MLS goal. And still, Blas Perez scored in the 97th minute in stoppage time for the equalizer. Afterward, Union manger John Hackworth was irate that a team could score in the 97th minute while there was originally five minutes of stoppage time.
