CHESTER, Pa. (AP)

Philadelphia Union defender Raymon Gaddis was suspended one game Thursday and fined an undisclosed amount by the MLS disciplinary committee for a reckless challenge.

The challenge, according to the MLS, endangered the safety of his opponent, Sporting Kansas City midfielder Roger Espinoza. It occurred in the 24th minute of a 4-0 victory for the Union last Saturday.

Gaddis will serve his suspension on Saturday when Union play the Houston Dynamo.

The fine collected will be donated to the charitable partners of the MLS.
