The Philly Soccer Page " Stat chat: Union at DC
For the second game in a row, the Union entered the second half down a goal and battled back with multiple goals—against DC one of their two goals was a Perry Kitchen own goal— to secure points.
As AMT pointed out immediately following the 2-2 tie between D.C. United and the Philadelphia Union on Saturday night, the result was the exact same as the previous match. But the overlying themes were different.
Looking to maintain their place atop the Eastern Conference table the Union went into D.C. last night and picked up an important road point. The Union twice battled back from being down a goal and left RFK Stadium with a 2-2 draw.
Philadelphia Union manager Piotr Nowak is one of the best coaching minds in Major League Soccer. The former Polish international knows what is needed to achieve success in MLS. Nowak knows how to recognize talent and make players fit into his system.
