The weather was absolutely terrible for soccer. Great, perhaps, for any ducks waddling into PPL Park off the Delaware River. Or for a raincoat salesman. But, yes, pretty awful for soccer.

And the weather played a big part, as slips and refereeing yips ruled in Philadelphia’s 3-1 victory.

We’ll go over the match’s controversial moment in another PST post – and the moment was definitely a turning point in the result as well.

You’ll also see two goals from Conor Casey, who is enjoying a fantastic season now that he has fully recovered from the Achilles tear that took him out of action for several months. Casey has 7 goals and 4 assists, helping ensure that the Union isn’t overly dependent on Jack McInerney.
