Live blog:

Nashville SC took an early lead in the match with a goal in minute 10.

CITY SC tied the match late in the first half with a goal from Nicholas Gioacchini in minute 41. The goal required a video review from the referee to determine if Gioacchini was off-side and then if Gioacchini had touched the ball with his hand as he was going for the ball.

At the end of the review, the referee determined the goal counted for CITY SC, tying the match 1-1 late in the first half.
