Another Matchday, Another Draw For The Union

Another matchday, another draw for the Philadelphia Union. Just 13 minutes into the match, a handball by Austin F.C. Alexander Ring inside the box gave the Philadelphia Union a penalty kick. Daniel Gazdag took care of the rest, sending the opposing keeper the wrong way and easily burying the PK, giving his team the 1-0 lead early. Philadelphia continued to dominate as play went on. Philly finished the half with nine shot attempts, 3 of them on goal to go along with four corners and a 1-0 advantage at the break.

Goals, Goals, Goals!

Austin responded with not one but two early goals to start the second half. They put them up 2-1 after goals from Diego Rubio in the 56th and Jon Gallagher in the 58th minute, but the lead didn’t last long for F.C. The boys in blue responded almost immediately. A cross found its way to Mikael Uhre in front of the net. He didn’t miss his opportunity to level the game at two.

The home team stayed in the driver’s seat for the majority of the second half. They created multiple attempts but came up short of finding the go-ahead goal in the final 45 minutes of the game. Another Matchday, another Draw. Doop now has 3 draws in a row to start the season. They will look to get in the win column on matchday 5 when they head to Portland and take on the Timbers. Who
suffered their first loss of the season today in Houston. oA&s=19
