Philadelphia Union boss Jim Curtin lauds team for first win at Red Bull Arena: "They put in a great effort"
Through their first five years of existence, the Philadelphia Union had never won a game at Red Bull Arena.
Few would have expected that to change with captain Maurice Edu, leading scorer Fernando Aristeguieta and ironman defender Ray Gaddis among Philly’s absences for Sunday’s road tilt against the Red Bulls.
New York Red Bulls frustrated by rare home loss to Philadelphia Union as scoreless drought continues
HARRISON, N.J. – A picture is worth a thousand words, but the frustration written on the faces in the New York Red Bulls locker room said a whole lot more.
After being shut out in Dallas a week ago, New York was once again held off the scoreboard -- though this time, the Red Bulls walked away empty-handed. For all of their possession and chances created, the Red Bulls simply could not break down a disciplined and organized Union side that took their chances with great aplomb, dropping a disappointing 2-0 decision at home.
HARRISON, N.J. – After failing in their seven prior attempts, the Philadelphia Union finally bested the New York Red Bulls on the road, coming alive in the second half to earn a surprising 2-0 victory over their I-95 rival Sunday evening.
Now 1-6-1 in all competitions at Red Bull Arena, the Union rode goals from Vincent Nogueira and C.J. Sapong after halftime and another strong outing from their depleted backline en route to their second straight win.
Another MLS warrior has reached the 300 mark.

TORONTO – Toronto FC star Sebastian Giovinco is a player in a class of his own.
So says his head coach Greg Vanney, who saw his side benefit from another peach of a goal by the Italian forward in a 1-0 win over the Portland Timbers – Toronto’s first home win of the season – and the strike left Vanney and teammates full of praise.
Leading his team onto the pitch at Rio Tinto Stadium as a foe may have been a completely new experience for Jason Kreis, but what transpired on the field is becoming all too familiar for the New York City FC head coach.
A 2-0 loss to Real Salt Lake on Saturday night followed a similar script to NYCFC’s previous six losses this season.
