Union Drop More Points at Subaru Park

The Philadelphia Union took on CF Montreal for the second time this season at Subaru Park. In their last meeting, the Union were able to come up on top and leave Canada with three points. Although, the Union were only able to salvage a 1-1 draw at home. Union striker Julian Carranza opened the scoring in the 21st minute with a calm, composed penalty kick. The score remained the same the rest of the half and Union headed into the locker-room with a one goal advantage.

However, trouble started for the Union when Montreal brought on an MLS veteran striker, Kei Kamara. He bullied the Union’s backline and missed a couple chances early on into the half. But, in the 59th minute, he struck one to level the game at one and score the last goal of the match.

This tie today was a rather disappointing one for the Union. In fact, the “Sons of Ben” were chanting, “Hey Union, we want three points!” during the game’s closing minutes. Unfortunately, the Union came short of that today and we will have to live with only a point for today. Keeping in mind last week’s loss to Toronto, the Union needs to figure this out and get back into their winning ways.
