Kahlina’s mistake prevented Charlotte (6-7-3) from winning three straight on the road for the first time in club history. Despite the loss, Charlotte has earned 10 points on the road this season, one less than it had all last year.
Andre Blake had two saves to earn the clean sheet for Philadelphia. Kahlina saved two shots for Charlotte.
The two clubs split a pair of matches last season, but Charlotte won 4-0 which equaled the Union’s largest margin of defeat in all competitions.
