HIGHLIGHTS: Philadelphia Union vs. San Jose Earthquakes | March 12, 2022
Philadelphia assumed the lead in the 23rd minute off the foot of Cory Burke, who gathered a cross after a great run by Sergio Santos along the left side. From there, the Jamaican forward tapped into an open net for a 1-0 Union advantage.
The Union were later awarded a penalty kick in the 56th minute following a clear handball inside the box by San Jose's Jackson Yueill. Daniel Gazdag took the attempt from the spot and calmly placed his Panenka past a diving JT Marcinkowski for a 2-0 lead.
- THE BIG PICTURE: After a season-opening home draw against Minnesota United FC, the Union have won back-to-back matches, including Saturday's win against the Quakes and an away win at CF Montréal a week ago.

- MOMENT OF THE MATCH: Cory Burke made sure that Sergio Santos' efforts along the left side of the box paid off, opening the scoring for the Union.
GOAL: Cory Burke, Philadelphia Union - 23rd minute
- MAN OF THE MATCH: Sergio Santos might have had at least a goal and a second assist to add to his first assist on Burke's opener, but it was an overall active effort in the attack for the Brazilian.
