October 20, 2022 – Camden, NJ — The Philadelphia Union continue their remarkable season by defeating Cincinnati 1-0 to advance to the MLS Eastern Conference finals. The Sons of Ben chants could be heard across the river, and the special guest to bang the drum was Phillies’ shortstop Edmundo Sosa!
The Union made 6 shots on goal from 16 attempts, and NYC made 5 on goal from 15 attempts. Meanwhile Andre Blake continued to be a wall in net. But it was Leon Flach’s goal in the 63rd minute that made all the difference!
The Union will play New York City FC on October 30th, hopefully on their way to the MLS Cup Championship Final on November 5th.
