After over a month on the bench Kassey Kallman went the distance at left back for the Washington Spirit. Looking to regain their 2016 form the Spirit took the lead against the Chicago Red Stars just before half time. Washington held onto the lead until the 81st minute when Christian Press converted a penalty to split the points.
The New England Revolution lost at home for the first time in eleven games. Cody Cropper started in goal for the Revs. The keeper made two saves, but his defense let him down on the other two of Chicago’s shots on goal.

Teal Bunbury entered the game in the 80th minute and had three good chances to affect the scoreline. The midfielder first set up Lee Ngyuen who skied his shot from 12 yards out. Then Bunbury saw two shots of his own stopped by a defender and the post to keep the final score 2-1.
A goal in the 4th minute of stoppage time gave Orlando City SC a 4-3 win over the Montreal Impact. With the score level, Calum Mallace came on in the 89th minute to take up time and hold out for the draw. In his brief time on the field the midfielder only touched the ball once.
After his strong showing in the U.S. Open Cup, Jackson Yueill appeared in his first regular season game. Still playing with a depleted bench the Quakes held on to a 0-0 draw with Sporting Kansas City. Yueill entered in the 75th minute for the San Jose Earthquakes and was active right away. The rookie completed 12 of 14 passes, including one that set up a shot on goal:

Two days later Yueill started for Reno 1868 FC in a 2-1 loss to Real Monarchs SLC. The midfielder put in just under an hour and completed all but two of his 27 passes. If Yueill can keep putting in solid performances, he may get to stay with San Jose once they are at full strength.
Eric Miller stayed on the bench for the Colorado Rapids in a 2-1 win over the Portland Timbers.
