Mike DiNovo-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Philadelphia Union beat the Chicago Fire 3-1 on Wednesday night at Toyota Park.

The Philadelphia Union beat the Chicago Fire 3-1 on Wednesday night at Toyota Park and are now winners of two of their last three matches.

The Union struck quickly with a Jack McInerney goal in the seventh minute, taking a 1-0 lead and setting the tone for the rest of the evening. Philadelphia then added a second marker in the 67th minute with Gabriel Enrique Gomez putting a shot past Fire goalkeeper Sean Johnson.

After seeing their advantage cut in half two minutes later on a Dominic Oduro score, the Union finished off the scoring with an Antoine Hoppenot goal at 87'.

Despite being outshot 16-5 by Chicago, the Union made their opportunities count by scoring on every shot that was on-frame. The match was also an extremely chippy affair, with three yellow cards and a red card being handed out, with the latter going to Chicago forward Guillermo Franco.

Philadelphia was guilty of two yellows, with Sheanon Williams and Michael Lahoud the recipients.
