After a horrid first 4 games, the Union have awoke. Week 6 was rivalry weekend for the club and the first leg of the California Cup saw SoCal get a goal from Buddle assisted by Dillon Powers and early in the match the U had a 2-0 lead. Maurice Edu added to the lead and match captain Chris Wondolowski put in #4 for the match. The Suns, left their offense in Sacramento, as the only counter came from Barrera. The first leg goes to the Union with a 3 point cushion heading into the 2nd leg.
