The Union lost again Saturday, which certainly isn’t earth-shattering news.
And their record fell to 1-6-3, which doesn’t surprise anyone, especially not the Sons of Ben.
But the question must be asked:
When will Philly’s MLS team turn its ship around, if ever?
Sebastian Giovinco scored on a free kick in the 34th minute and Toronto FC ended a seven-game trip with a 1-0 victory over the Union at Chester’s PPL Park.
Giovinco knuckled it just inside the left post from 35 yards out for his fourth goal of the season.
Toronto FC (3-4-0) opened the season away from home to allow for renovations of its BMO Field. TFC had a four-game losing streak after winning the season opener but rebounded to win the last two.
Chris Konopka earned his first MLS shutout while making his first start for Toronto.
Cristian Maidana had the Union’s best chance in first-half stoppage time when he crashed a left-footed shot into the crossbar. The Union (1-6-3) lost their third straight and extended their winless streak to four.
