First Half Summary

The Union pushed toward the Red Bull net within the first minute, and a Philly cross went over the defense, almost trickling into goal. The ball took a fortunate bounce for New York.


A scary moment occurred during the third minute, as a ball was lifted toward Blake. He and Elliot collided in mid air, and both remained on the ground for a few minutes. The Chester crowd held their breath, but both players eventually returned to their feet. The fans exhaled, and play resumed.
