Yeferson Quintana made a splash with an early goal in the 3rd minute off a corner kick from Magnus Eriksson. However, the lead was short lived as New York City FC responded with two second half goals from Anton Tinnerholm in the 49th minute and Maximiliano Moralez in the 60th minute to give the visitors a 2-1 victory before a sellout crowd of 18,000. The Quakes had a goal called off late in the second half, losing out on a point in the standings. The home team mounted a fierce comeback only to fall short in the end.
