2012 MLS Standings: Union remain 8th in Eastern Conference

The Philadelphia Union lost, 3-2, to the Columbus Crew on Saturday, but remained in eighth place in the Eastern Conference.

The Union have 30 points on the season, one more than the New England Revolution. The Revolution could have tied or jumped Philadelphia this week, but they lost to Houston, 2-0. Philadelphia's 30 points put it in a tie for 16th place out of 19 MLS teams. The Union, however, have played fewer games than the other MLS teams and are 14th in points per game.

Philadelphia trails the Montreal Impact by 10 points for the seventh spot in the Eastern Conference and with just five regular season games remaining, it's highly unlikely the Union would be able to catch the Impact. Instead, they will likely continue to battle with New England for the eighth spot.

Sporting Kansas City continues to lead the Eastern Conference with 58 points, while the San Jose Earthquakes currently lead in the Western Conference -- and for the Supporters' Shield -- with 61 points.
