Chester PA: We are only one month into the 2018 season and all the teams in MLS are trying to figure out their identities as the Philadelphia Union took on Orlando City SC on Friday night from Talen Energy Stadium in Chester PA. The Union enter the game with a (1-1-2) record for 5 points and of a draw to San Jose on April 7 while Orland City SC comes into battle with the Union with(2-2-1) for 7 points and off a win over Portland on April 8.
Orlando City SC:
In the first half, both Orland City and the Union would have multiple scoring chances to get the ball into the net, however, both goalies were up to the test. Orlando City would break through in the 38th minute as Dominic Dwyer would score on a play that looked questionable. Dwyer was somehow able to stay onside and beat Andre Blake for the 1-0 lead. Orlando City SC would add to the lead, as Chris Mueller blasted a shot passed Blake a 2-0 lead and that would be the score at the half.
In the second half, the Union would come out and put pressure on the Orlando City Goalie and they would have some chances but nothing would get past goalie Joe Bendik. Orlando City would hold on for a 2-0 win and a crowd of 16, 032 would leave very disgusted and disappointed. With the win, Orlando City would get a big 3 points on the road and look to add to their winning streak, which is now at three games, as they take on San Jose also on April 21. The Union will have to try to rebound from this loss and get back to the win column as they take on FC Dallas on April 21 in Dallas.
