HIGHLIGHTS: Philadelphia Union 1 - 1 FC Dallas

  • 00:32 - The Philadelphia Union kickoff the game.
  • 00:58 - A ball is launched over the top of the Union defense and finds Andrew Jacobson at the top of Philadelphia's 18. The Union defense had been overly aggressive in the attack only seconds beforehand and was unable to handle a run by the former Philadelphia midfielder. Jacobson's one timer off of a bounce was saved by Chase Harrison and put out of play by the goalkeeper for a corner.
  • 01:38 - The corner is taken by FC Dallas and headed toward the far post. Blas Perez, Dallas' starting forward, beats his marker, Keon Daniel, on the short side and puts a header inside of the left post. Harrison hits his head on the left post and Perez hurts his shoulder on the play.
  • 02:43 - Michael Farfan tries to play a give-and-go with Michael Lahoud, but the new Union midfielder - acquired as part of the Califf trade to Chivas USA - was not in position to receive the pass and instead tried to force his way through an opposing player to the ball. Lahoud received a yellow for his reckless action.
  • 03:26 - Lahoud goes in hard on a slide tackle and caught Hernan Pertuz's foot with the challenge. The referee does not call a foul and allows play to continue, with the Union pressuring in Dallas' final third. It could have easily been a send off for Lahoud with only three minutes left in the half for a second yellow. Pertuz was forced to come off and was substituted.
  • 04:42 - A poor back header by Dallas, off of a long ball by Carlos Valdes, falls to Gabriel Gomez. The Panamanian central midfielder headed home the bouncing ball, past an onrushing Kevin Hartman. Gomez bore the brunt of the aftermath of the goal, as Hartman came in late and never touched the ball, kicking his right knee well after the ball was already in the air. No call on the play for Hartman, though it could have easily been a red if a different referee was on the field. Amobi Okugo came into the game for the injured Gomez.
  • 05:53 - A header by Valdes off of a corner rockets off of Dallas' crossbar for a goal kick.
  • 06:40 - Farfan creates room for himself at the top right of the Dallas box and lets a long range left footed shot rip. Hartman tips it wide.
  • 07:10 - A cross from the left sideline goes far post, to the end of the Union six. A half-volley is kick saved by Harrison.
  • 07:35 - The referee calls the game and it ends 1-1.
