The Union were back in action Saturday Night. They looked to keep their winning streak alive against DC United. DC has what it takes to give Philly a run for their money. If they want the W they are going to have to earn it.
The Union wasted no time as in the 10’ Kacper Przybyłko scored his second goal in as many games, and gave Philly an early 1-0 lead. Not too much later in the 16’ minute, the man they call “the friendly striker” scored again. The Union dominating the pace of play.
Philly widened their lead in the 21’ with a goal, on a sweet move from Sergio Santos. DC had no answer for the aggressiveness of the Union offense early on. The home team would keep the pressure on for the rest of the half and go into the break in total control up 3-0.
The rain moved in right before the start of the second half but that didn’t stop the Union from scoring their 4th goal in the 61’. This time it was Brenden Aaronson getting in on the action. DCU didn’t give up though, 3 minutes later they finally got on the board with their first goal of the game.
As time went by the Union began to use the clock to their advantage. They held on to the ball on each possession, for what seemed like ages. DCU had a few close calls but couldn’t break through. As a result the Union were able to hold for the much needed victory.
Final Score Union 4 DC United 1
