Back in the Win Column: Philadelphia Union take down D.C. United 2-1
After a pretty medicre three game road trip, the Philadelphia Union got a much needed win last night at home against D.C. United, 2-1. With the win, the Union moved back into second place in the Eastern Conference. Kacper Przybylko scored for the first time since May.
It was Philadelphia’s first win in four games. They were able to jump Orlando City SC for second place in the east. Their next match, will be against Orlando when they head to Florida for two games.
Sergio Santos got things moving for the Union, putting the ball past D.C. United goalkeeper in the 11th minute thanks to a great pass from Daniel Gazdag. Both Gazdag and Bedoya were credited with assists. D.C. United would tie the game up in the 51st minute.
Santos wasn’t done yet, and was credited with an assist in the go-ahead goal for the Union after Kacper Przybylko buried one to give them a 2-1 lead. Shortly after, the game went into a weather delay thanks to the thunderstorms in the Philly area last night.
Fans were sent to the concourse and teams were sent back to the locker rooms after over an hour of lightning storms. The Union waited another two hours before resuming the game around 11:30pm last night. Not much to write about in the final nine minutes of play.
See you Thursday in Orlando. As always, make sure you’re tuned into Fox Sports The Gambler for all of your Philadelphia Union coverage and broadcasts.
