Daniel Pinkney headed the ball down to Callum Bisset, who sprinted up the right side of the pitch and delivered a beautiful cross to Mondragon. For Mondragon, it was his seventh goal of the season and the 16th of his career, which puts him in a tie for ninth all-time. Pinkney notched his 13th assist of the season and moved into a tie for fourth in a single season in points with 35 and for Bisset it was his eighth assist of the season, matching his total from last year, and the 16th of his career, moving him into a tie with Oscar Marquez for sixth all-time.
