A Win Is a Win, The Union Are On To The Next

The Philadelphia Union was playing with momentum from Saturday’s win against the Chicago Fire. Deportivo Saprissa came into Subaru Park looking to get revenge from last week. Saprissa came through and threw everything but the kitchen sink at Philly. Guys like Quinn Sullivan are just an absolute playmaker for Philly. His quickness and speed do a great job of keeping opposing defense on their toes. He made a pass while in double coverage to Juliann Carranza to make a re-direct to the net. Quinn Sullivan, all alone, left wide open, and Quinn Sullivan made a goal. He played lights out in the first half.

Taking Philly to The Limits

Deportivo Saprissa had one thing on their mind: revenge. Saprissa gave Philly a run for their money, causing the Union to turn the ball throughout this game. Saprissa did a fine job of answering the bell off of their plenty kicks as Luis Paradela would nail one, setting the game’s tone. Warren Midrigal would place himself near the crest of the net for a goal and make an incredible turning kick to the net. Mariano Torres would unload one from a distance to get the ball past Philly’s goalkeeper, Oliver Semmle.

Mikael Uhre Getting Into A Scoring Rhythm

Mikael Uhre is getting into a scoring rhythm. In his last two games, he has been locating the back of the net. What’s been the difference maker in these previous two goals? Mikael Uhre, breaking away from his defenders this past Saturday, would find himself beating Chicago Fire’s defender Mauricio Pineda on one-on-one coverage to the net and in tonight’s game, he would catch off guard in overtime, and he would create space for a pretty overtime goal. The Philadelphia Union will head out to Kanas City. Let’s see if Mikael Uhre can go for the try effect.
