Heading into this game, there were a few teams in MLS who had performed consistently worse than the Philadelphia Union over the course of the 2012 season. One of those teams, the New England Revolution, visited PPL Park Saturday night and left 1-0 losers.
On the whole, the game was pretty level, with perhaps New England having a slight advantage over the Union in terms of chances. But while the game was not going great for the Union, they would ultimately get the game's only goal off a free kick in the 73rd minute. Jack McInerney headed in a free kick from Keon Daniel to put the Union up for good.
In the 89th minute, Benny Feilhaber was shown a second yellow for a poor challenge, and would subsequently be sent off the pitch. Remember that time when Union fans wanted to see Benny Feilhaber join the Union? Those were good times. Also times of hope, promise, excitement, and OH GOSH WHY COULDN'T WE HAVE THOSE TIMES BACK!
Following the international break, the Philadelphia Union will travel to Houston to take on the playoff contending Dynamo.
