Union Win in New England
The Philadelphia Union took the field tonight in New England against the Revolution, as they tried to bounce back from their draw in DC.
In the 38th minute, the Union scored off an own goal by Revolution defender Andrew Farrell. Union defender Kai Wenger whipped a ball in the box that caused the own goal.
The game entered halftime 1-0, but they needed to make sure to get the job done in the second half.
In the 69th minute, homegrown midfielder Anthony Fantana chipped one in over the goalie. Of his eight career goals with Union, four of them have come against the Revolution.
In the 80th minute, the Revolution scored on an incredible strike from Tajon Buchanan. No one could’ve stopped that shot from going in.
In the 84th minute, the Revolution had an opportunity to equalize, but Union goalie Andre Blake showed why he’s the best in the MLS. An absolute incredible save.
The Union went on to win this game 2-1 and secure a crucial three points. The biggest game of the season is this Saturday as the Union takes on the first place Toronto Impact at home. A win would be huge as they would be tied for first place and they own the tiebreaker for goal differential.
