Philadelphia Union Playoff Trip to New England

New England Revolution out the gate, bringing offensive pressure. Now, the Union is bringing little offense of their own. However, New England goalie Jackup Jackson causes plenty on Carranza. Daniel Gazdag would get plenty of kicks and score the goal. The Union had their foot on the gas pedal as they kept bringing the offensive pressure Kurt Wager to Miguel Uhre. New England is starting to get physical, with Union having number 17 hit Dainkel Gazdag. Plenty of opportunity pays off for the Union has Natinal Harrod with a head goal. 

In the Second Half

The Union’s grey area usually comes out of the second half sluggish, but not in this case. They caused the Revolution to take difficult shots. Just pouring on more offensive pressure. Gustavo Bou gets on the Revolution with a couple of nice juke-like moves. Andre Blake has done a phenomenal job playing goalie tonight. Only allowing one goal throughout the match.Stopped 4-5 goals. Stopping some tough goals that came his way. Showing why he’s one of the best goalkeepers in the league. The Union played very well and had a team on both sides of the ball. Offensively bringing the house causes Jackup Jackson a lot of stress. Defensively reading, Revolution wanted to do offense and cause turnovers.

Daniel Gazdag scored his fourth career MLS Cup Playoff goal, and the Philadelphia Union did all their damage before halftime in a 3-1 victory over the visiting New England Revolution in Game 1 of their best-of-three Round One series.
