The Philadelphia Union have a golden opportunity tonight. With a win against Toronto FC at home they can vault in to first place in the eastern conference. The Union has been virtually unstoppable at Subaru Park and will be hoping their unbeaten streak stays intact in the biggest game of their season so far.
The Union had their fair share of close calls and near goals inside of the first 6’ of play but nothing resulted in points on the board. Multiple shots sailed wide of the net putting the Philly crowed in to a frenzy. Philadelphia would dominate possession in the early going having the ball an astounding 70% of the time. However, they had nothing to show for it.
Finally in the 27’ defense turned into offense as a timely Union take away transitioned into a beautiful header from Sergio Santos on the other end and Philly took a 1-0 lead. The home team would follow it up with another header from Mark Mackenzie in the 34’ . And the Union would lead at intermission 2-0

The Union wasted no time in the second half as Jamiro Monteiro scored on what could be a Goal Of The Week candidate in the 56’. The scoring wouldn’t end there as Santos scored again in the 63, giving Philly the dominating 4-0 lead. Santos would complete the fourth hat trick in Union history with his third goal of the game in the 68’. The Union looking absolutely unstoppable with a 5-0 lead. And that’s how it would end. Philadelphia captures first place with perfect outing.
