Union keeps things rolling at home with Victory over Charlotte

Chester, PA: As everyone knows, it is important to defend the home field and that is what the Philadelphia Union have done. They have made Subaru Park one the tough venues for visiting teams to come to play in.

On Wednesday night, they took on Charlotte FC. 

The lineup that Union Coach Jim Curtin sent out for Charlotte FC:

Before the game, the Philadelphia Union would have Eagles great Jason Kelce bang the drum to get the crowd at Subaru Park rocking for the game 

The game would be scoreless at the half but things would change in the 71st minute as Dániel Gazdag blasted a shot that went off the post & then goes off the goalie. At first, they credited the goal to Dániel Gazdag but then changed it to an own goal for the 1-0 lead.

Following the goal by the Union, Charlotte FC would attempt to get the game tied but Union goalie Andre Blake was up for the test.

The Union would hold on for the 1-0 win & at the same time they extended their unbeaten streak to eight games.
