On Sunday, Austin and Dallas were held to a 2-2 draw at Q2 Stadium. As the table looks today, Austin are in 3rd place, with 28 points from 23 matches, while Dallas sit in 4th, with 26 points from 23.

After a goalless first half, Dallas took the initiative in the second half, when Arriola gave Dallas the lead, 60 minutes in. The momentum was now with Dallas, who then scored again through a goal from Servania at the 68 minute mark to establish a 2-0. However, Austin weren’t lying down and managed to pull back a goal from Driussi at the 72 minute mark. However they weren’t finished yet and Hoesen made it 2-2 just before the final whistle to make it 2-2.
