October 26, 2013 MISSING INGREDIENT
Disappointing season shows Union still a work in progress
CHESTER, Pa.—The fall sun began to set over PPL Park early on Saturday. By kickoff, half the field was covered in shadow. By the time Sporting Kansas City scored their first goal, in the 47th minute of the game, approximately 4:25 pm, it was the Philadelphia Union’s season that was cast in shadow.
October 19, 2013 SUDDEN IMPACT
Union blow lead, lose to Montreal
MONTREAL--- The Philadelphia Union gave up two second-half goals, and quite possibly a shot at the playoffs, on Saturday, falling 2-1 to the Montreal Impact at Stade Saputo.
October 12, 2013 DISAPPOINTING
Slow start dooms Union against DC United
WASHINGTON, DC—When you’re struggling to stay in the playoff race is probably not the best time to turn in a poor performance, but fortunately for the Philadelphia Union on Saturday, they were playing D.C. United, the worst team in the league.
October 12, 2013 NOT ENOUGH
Draw with DC United drops Union to 6th place
WASHINGTON, DC—Jack McInerney snapped his scoring drought with a dramatic 90th-minute equalizer, but in the end, the Philadelphia Union’s 1-1 draw with DC United at RFK Stadium on Saturday was not enough to keep them above the red line in the MLS East.
October 12, 2013 CRUNCH TIME
Union can’t afford to drop points against DC on Saturday
The Philadelphia Union are hanging on by their fingernails to a playoff position, and that can be a bad spot to be in when playing a team that has nothing to lose, except another game. That’s the situation Saturday when the Union visit DC United at RFK Stadium (7:00 pm, TCN-Phi).
October 5, 2013 MISSION ACCOMPLISHED
Union get the points they need against Toronto FC
CHESTER, PA – The entire Philadelphia Union team, as well as its opponents, knew that three points were necessary from tonight’s matchup with Toronto FC at PPL Park.
It took a full 90 minutes and almost six minutes of injury time for the Union to reach that mark, as Kleberson scored the winning goal on a free kick to lift Philadelphia to a 1-0 win in front of a sellout crowd of 18,996 fans.
October 5, 2013 A LITTLE BIT EXTRA
Kleberson lifts Union in stoppage time
CHESTER, Pa. – Twice this season, the Philadelphia Union netted extra-time goals to earn 1-1 draws against Toronto FC. Injury time made all the difference again as the Union used the six extra minutes to take an important 1-0 shorthanded win over the Reds, in front of a sellout crowd of 18,996 fans at PPL Park.
October 4, 2013 A MUST-WIN
Union need three points on Saturday
It may be hard to fathom that a game against one of the worst teams in Major League Soccer has become a must-win for the Philadelphia Union. But that’s exactly the situation when the Union host Toronto FC on Saturday at PPL Park (7:30 pm, CSN).
