CHESTER, Pa. (AP) — Michael Farfan scored on a free kick in the box in the 82nd minute, helping the Philadelphia Union beat Chivas USA 3-1 in rainy and wet conditions on Friday night.
Brian Carroll and Conor Casey also scored, and Sebastien Le Toux added two assists to take over the league lead with nine as the Union improved to 8-6-6.
Jose Correa scored for Chivas USA (3-11-5), which remained in last place in the Western Conference.

From there, the game got chippy.
Union manager John Hackworth was ejected in the 77th minute for arguing with the officials.
In the 80th minute, Chivas USA’s Josue Soto earned his second yellow card and was sent off.
Casey sealed the win with a goal in the 89th minute.
The Union improved to 4-0-2 all-time against Chivas USA.
