Union Vs. Impact Final Score: Union Score Game Winning Goal in 91st Minute

The Philadelphia Union pulled off a thrilling victory on Saturday night, narrowly defeating the Montreal Impact by a final score of 2-1.

Both teams played tough defense for nearly the entirety of regulation play. It wasn't until the 82nd minute when the first goal of the game was scored by Lionard Pajoy, giving Philadelphia a 1-0 advantage. But seven minutes later, the Union were struck with an own goal when Montreal's Patrice Bernier had a corner kick ricochet off Keon Daniel and past goalkeeper Zac MacMath.

In the 91' minute, Carlos Valdes converted the game-winning shot to give Philadelphia a dramatic victory.

It was the first ever meeting between the two teams, as the Impact are a new expansion club. Even still, the game had plenty of playoff implications, with the Impact's lead over Philadelphia falling from four points to one with their loss.

The Union now sit at 6-9-2 overall, while the Impact are 6-12-3.
