Union ties a blended Chivas squad, 2-2 [Updated]

Posted on 28 February 2010 by Breton Bonnette

The Union took a blended Chivas squad (first-team, reserve, and U-20s) on at the same MultiGol complex they recently played the Atlas U-20 squad, losing 3-1 on Thursday, February 26th and finishing the game with only 8 players.

It was a different story this morning, however. This is all pulled from a shoddy translation so please refer to the Chivas press release and correct me if I’m way off. They played 2 halves of 40 minutes each, no word on tactics, personnel (except for the goalscorers). Chivas struck first and the Union were on the backpedal most of the first half. They came out in the second half, however, with renewed vigor – pushing forward and attacking the Chivas net. The pressure led to a five-minute double salvo with two rookies, Jack McInerney (3rd of the postseason) and J.T. Noone (undrafted, Temple trialist) putting the Union in front for the first time. The Goats were able to equalize half way through the second half all thanks to Marco Fabian.

FINAL: Philadelphia 2, Chivas 2

11:30AM, Sunday, February 28th


Omar Arellano (CHV) 16th minute

Jack McInerney (PHL) second half (Zimmerman assist)

J.T. Noone (PHL) second half (Stahl assist)

Marco Fabian (CHV) 60th minute

If you can take any more out of that press release, please add it in the comment section! We are less than a month away from first kick…are you ready yet?

NOTE: If you haven’t seen it already, the Union have announced the forming of partnerships with area youth soccer clubs. Check to see if your old club team is one of the 18! The partnerships will include clinics, game day experiences, and all sorts of other good stuff.

UPDATE: The Union’s formal release on the 2-2 tie.
