Chicago Fire club gamer HekTic_JukeZ dropped a 2-1 decision to Montreal Impact's LyesMTL in Saturday's eMLS Cup conference quarterfinal action, falling out of the inaugural eMLS Cup competition at PAX East in Boston.
After falling behind 1-0 in the 39th minute, HekTic_JukeZ leveled the score in the 51st minute with a strike off the foot of Cristiano Ronaldo. But LyesMTL found the winner in the 75th minute and managed to hang onto the lead despite several scoring opportunities late in the match for HekTic_JukeZ.
HekTic_JukeZ earned qualification for the eMLS Cup playoffs thanks to his 5-6-5 record over two days of conference round-robin competition on Thursday and Friday.
The advancing competitors from Saturday's competition will move on to Sunday's eMLS Cup conference championships and eMLS Cup title matches, which will stream live on Twitch.tv/emls beginning at 12 PM CT.
