Flyers Let Early Lead Slip Away, Lose to Capitals

DC United Looking Sharp In The Early Going

The DC United started on the right foot, looking to build momentum with their win from last week’s game against the Seattle Sounders 2-1. DC United quickly puts the Union in a 2-0 hole in the early going of this game. DC United is doing their homework on Philly. They caught their defense off guard with excellent ball movement. Jared Stroud made a pass across the middle of the box. Cristian DaJome saw the open scoring opportunity and scored a goal.

This is the Union’s fifth straight game in which Philadelphia has fallen behind on the scoreboard. This needs to be fixed moving forward. It is also the second game in a row in which the Union has given up a goal in under 15 minutes. Jared Stroud is a great assist man, with a nice pass to Jacob Murrell. Jacob Murrell would score between two defenders. It was a great start by DC by finding the net early.

The Unusual Suspects

The Philadelphia Union had plenty of scoring chances but was unsuccessful in the first half. Even Julian Carranza tried to get creative with a plenty kick and hit the cross-bar; however, it was late in the first half, and Alejandro Bedoya would get things going for Philly. He would get his first goal of the season.

Alejandro Bedoya, usually a facilitator, did a great job finding the back of the net. Then, toward the tale of this game, it was Jack McGlynn beating the one-on-one coverage and unloading one from the 18. The Union would leave in a tie now, so let’s see if they can bounce back in the win column against Orlando next week.
