The Philadelphia Union needed to beat the Houston Dynamo by one goal in order to keep their Major League Soccer (MLS) playoff hopes alive on Thursday night in Robertson Stadium.
Instead, they lost by one.
That means "Orange Crush" is on the fast-track to Kansas to play Sporting Kansas City on Sunday. The Union, well, they’re on the fast-track to winter break.
Houston striker Brian Ching used his head at the 45 minute mark to put the Dynamo on top one-zip just before the half.
Turns out that’s the only point they needed.
