On the back of two goalless performances in consecutive losses, the Philadelphia Union turned their post-season hopes around in a big way when they visited Sporting Park last Friday.
Through a second half goal from bruising forward Conor Casey, the Union stunned Sporting Kansas City on the road, 1-0, earning a crucial three points to keep them in playoff contention in fifth place in the Eastern Conference. The Union’s performance on the road this week made them our choice for SBI MLS Team of the Week.
The Union beat out Real Salt Lake, the Portland Timbers, and the Columbus Crew for this week’s honors.
