Union’s Playoff Run Short-Lived
The first round of the MLS playoffs took place on Wednesday night as the Philadelphia Union took on the New York City FC at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx. And yet again, as it always seems to be in Philadelphia, the Union’s short-lived run ended quickly in frustration as they fell to the NYCFC 3-1. It was a case of frustrating déjà vu on Wednesday, as the NYCFC beat the Union by the same 3-1 score, at the same Yankee Stadium on Sunday. Oh yeah, and the Union’s only goal on Sunday?
