PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Philadelphia Union will be back home on Saturday as they welcome the New England Revolution to Chester.
Philadelphia comes in fresh off its first victory of the season. The Union went into Colorado and took care of the Rapids, 2-1 to improve to 1-1 on the season. Jack McInerney scored the game-winner in the 79th minute. The goal was set-up by second-year forward Antoine Hoppenot.
“I received the ball from our center-back, Jeff Parke, and I was able to get the ball under control,” Hoppenot tells KYW Newsradio. “I was able to turn on the first defender, and at that point I’m able to run at the defenders. Jack made a great run across me and I was able to put it in his path, and he put it in the back of the net.”
Hoppenot is looking to build off an impressive rookie season where he netted four goals and an assist in 25 games. He was selected by the Union out of Princeton in the third round of the 2012 MLS Supplemental Draft and he says everything has settled down for him here in year #2.
