First Half Summary

The Union cannot seem to escape Mother Nature. Lighting delayed the game nearly an hour, but the Boys in Blue finally kicked off at 8:25pm


The Union's most promising early moment came in the 7th minute. Kai and Miro started a counter attack, which found Bedoya and Mbaizo surging down the right side of the pitch. Bedoya, however, wasn't able to lead Mbaizo well enough, and things remained 0-0.


Philly's sloppiness burned them just a few moments later. Michel snuck right behind Mbaizo, and a well struck pass found Michel open in the box. The ball was sent passed Freese with ease, and the Union found themselves down 1 goal early. After looking at the replay, Jose and Mbaizo were clearly not on the same page, and Michel took advantage.
