Half time of the Philadelphia Union's 3-2 win over Chivas USA featured three kids in a shoot out, with the winner meeting with Danny Mwanga after the game.

The contestants were Nick Feldman, a 10-year-old from Cherry Hill, New Jersey representing Cherry Hill FC, Aidan O'Rahilly, an 8-year-old from Falls Township, Pennsylvania representing Falls Soccer Club and Krew Bouldin, a 10-year-old from Middletown, Delaware representing M.O.T. Union Blue.

O'Rahilly ended up as the winner of the three, as he navigated the cone laden course to the goal and slotted home his ball before his competitors had even finished the course themselves.

Post-game was one of excitement for O'Rahilly, who could be seen smiling from afar as Mwanga talked with him. The 8-year-old also received an autographed jersey as a prize.
