Union 2, United 2
Carlos Ruiz scored his fifth goal of the season in the 84th
minute to help the Philadelphia Union earn a 2-2 draw with D.C.
United on Saturday night.
Sebastien Le Toux sent a long ball down the right side to
Sheanon Williams, who quickly directed a cross to Ruiz charging
down the middle. Ruiz then scored from five yards, giving him goals
in consecutive games, as the Union (7-4-6) salvaged a point despite
United (4-5-7) took the lead when Andy Najar fired a 35-yard
strike in the 58th minute. That briefly made up for Perry Kitchen’s
own goal in the 49th minute, a redirect from the middle of the box
off Veljko Paunovic’s cross. It proved costly as United’s winless
streak reached five games.
Dwayne De Rosario assisted on Josh Wolff’s goal in the 44th
minute in his first game with United since being acquired from the
New York Red Bulls on Monday.
