The Union are looking to stay unbeaten on the season

MLS: Philadelphia Union at Toronto FC Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

Game Updates

Whistle blows. Disappointing loss for the Union here, but it’s just their first of the season in a tough place to play. Toronto certainly benefited from not getting an early red card and the video review the referee did consult took the Union’s would be second goal away. The Union will get another Canadian opponent in CF Montreal back home at Subaru Park next Saturday.

96’ Aaronson earns a corner. Glesnes with a headed attempt but it’s off target.

Five minutes of stoppage time

88’ McGlynn with the ball chipped over the top to Santos but Bono is able to get to the ball and it’s still 2-1 to the Reds

77’ Burke’s first touch is in the box but it’s blocked

77’ Harriel sets up McGlynn in the D but his shot sails wide of the goal. Burke subs into the game for Uhre.

73’ Santos gets in behind and the ball ends up being deflected wide but it turns out it was because he was offside

71’ Scramble in the box off the corner but it ends up it Bono’s hands

68’ Santos and McGlynn check in for Carranza and Flach

61’ Good combo play from Carranza and Uhre but Bono makes a big food save to deny Uhre

60’ Uhre with a shot on goal but it’s saved by Bono

51’ Pozuelo gives Toronto the lead after several Union defenders basically just watched him walk into the box and score

46’ Second half underway

Halftime whistle blows on a very strange half of soccer. Union put the ball in the back of the net twice but are only tied 1-1, Nelson got a yellow for a red card challenge that wasn’t reviewed, second Union goal was taken off after review, Blake made two big saves and Michael Bradley is on a yellow.

42’ GOAL Wagner gives the Union the lead right back on a volley off a clearance from a corner kick. The play is being reviewed for obstruction by an offside Union player and it’s taken off.

40’ The shutout streak comes to an end on a curling goal from Jimenez off a pass from Osorio in the box.

35’ Blake keeps it 1-0 with a big stop to tip Pozuelo’s shot over the bar

34’ GOAL Carranza off a sublime chipped pass to the far post by Uhre

31’ Uhre gets a head to Wagner’s corner but it’s well wide of the goal

30’ Uhre taken out from behind by Pozuelo, who gets all of that yellow card

28’ Nelson with a great touch to set himself up for a goal but his shot is way high. It’s still a little shocking he’s still on the field.

19’ Nelson shown yellow for a bad challenge on Wagner but it should probably be red. Wagner earlier made a great step to pick off a pass and set up Uhre in the box but his attempted pass was blocked.

17’ Nelson with a quick shot but Blake reacts well to make his first save of the night

11’ Toronto looking to counter but Wagner there is to make the diving clearance. Another good start so far for Wagner tonight.

7’ Another big chance, Wagner does well in the box and sends in a low cross through traffic to the back post Carranza isn’t able to connect with

4’ Elliott with a big chance running on to a corner kick from Wagner but his attempt goes high

1’ Underway in Toronto
