Following an hour and a half weather delay, El Paso Locomotive struck quickly, cleaning up a corner kick opportunity with a fast goal from Lucho in the fourth minute. Moments later, Locomotive seemed sure to put away a second with Midfielder Dylan Mares but his left footed shot was just stopped by Atlanta United II’s goalkeeper, Vicente Reyes. While the Locos continued their pressure, testing the United II’s defense, the first half quickly fell into the host’s favor. Tristan Trager earned a brace with two goals within six minutes putting Atlanta in the lead. He first headed a goal in the 11th minute before earning his second in the 17th after slipping in past the Locos defense.
