Joining the Party: Union Also Cough Up Lead

If Jimmy Rollins thought it was quiet at Citizens Bank Park last night, he should have heard the Home Depot Center. The sparse crowd there to see the Union take on Chivas USA gives us an even better appreciation for how loud and full PPL Park is on any given game night.

Unfortunately, the Union joined the Eagles and Phillies in leaving a win on the field, holding a 1-0 lead until about the 90th minute. That’s when Juan Pablo Angel, who was earlier this season rumored to possibly be coming to Chester, equalized with a nifty header.

The Philly sports Sunday meltdown trifecta is complete!

Justin Mapp had the Union’s goal, which you can see at 2:15 of the video below. Sucks to see two points left in LA, but at least the U didn’t leave all three there.
