With his first touch of the match, the young Patrick Mullins put in the winning goal to break a 2-2 tie with Alamo City and give the Suns 4 points in 2 matches on the year. Darlington Nagbe would add in some insurance, but the damage was done.
An impressive return for Jozy Altidore helped the Suns build an early lead, but the club was unable to hold it in the closing moments and had to settle for a draw. The majority of the lineup fell flat in what was a quiet overall weekend for many players. Overall, its hard to gauge the club on one match, so look for a better performance in week 2.
