PAPILLION, Neb. (WOWT) - Union Omaha beat Greenville Triumph SC in the USL League One Final on Saturday. The game ended in a 3-0 shutout. In its second year of existence, Union Omaha became a championship-winning team.

The Owls played from in front after an Evan Conway header into the back of the net just seven minutes into the game. The separation really came on a Greg Hurst goal just before halftime in the 44th minute.

It may have been destiny that Union Omaha and Greenville met in the title game in 2021, considering the way 2020 ended. The top two remaining teams at the end of the regular season, Union Omaha and Greenville, were set to play in the championship game last year.

Positive COVID-19 cases in the Union Omaha organization led to the league cancelling the match and naming Greenville the 2020 champions.

Now, in 2021, the two teams actually got to meet in the final game and the Owls proved they’re top team.
