The match saw four different players score for the United attack, which has been on fire of late. Reading has outscored its opponents 15-1 over the past three matches, and the early season troubles the team saw finishing goals has become a thing of the past.
Ismael Nounmansana notched his third goal of the season in the 35th minute, Jelani Pieters scored the second of the game in the 47th minute, Frantzdy Pierrot scored again in the 67th minute, and newcomer Aaron Malloy scored his first goal for reading in the 89th minute.
It should be noted that the 2010 Reading United team featured Ray Gaddis (Philadelphia Union), Matt Hedges (FC Dallas), Luke Mulholland (Real Salt Lake), CJ Sapong (Philadelphia Union), and Andrew Wenger (Houston Dynamo). That team made it all the way to the PDL Final Four.
