They did it … They did it again! Although going down 0-2 after 25 minutes conceding goals from Utkus and Matondo, our Unionists showed their aggression as soon as they came onto the pitch for the second half.
Shortly before the hour mark, Kaoru Mitoma received the ball into the box after a poor clearance by the defense pegging us back to 1-2. Union’s vital quarter of an hour began as Bart Nieuwkoop took advantage of a scramble in the box to score 2-2. We were heading for a draw, before Dante Vanzeir, at the peak of his game, watched Daland back pass the ball past his own goalkeeper…3-2 for Union in a buzzing Stade Marien!
