The New England Revolution hung around for a while, but justice was eventually served for the team that had the better of play on Saturday night as the Philadelphia Union took a 1-0 lead. Jack McInerney, who scored the winner in the last match between these two sides at PPL Park, did the honors in the 73rd minute.
Fernando Cardenas committed a foul outside the box on the right flank, creating a free kick for the Union in a position similar to that of a corner. Keon Daniel stepped up and delivered an excellent floated cross to the far post. It drifted over Bobby Shuttleworth, and with Ryan Guy backpedaling and in a poor spot to make a play, Jack McInerney leaped highest right at the post and powered his header into the back of the net to give the home side the lead.
