PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – There’s no rest for the Philadelphia Union this weekend.
They fought hard against the Seattle Sounders in a losing effort in the US Open Cup, and they get set to face the Houston Dynamo at PPL Park Saturday. Both teams are in a fight for a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
To get you ready, the KYW Philly Soccer Show talks with Dynamo defender David Horst. The Dynamo are making their usual late surge towards to the playoffs as the Harrisburg-area native joins KYW’s Greg Orlandini and Philly Soccer Page writer Eli Pearlman-Storch.
Then, Greg and Eli breakdown the US Open Cup final. The Union fought valiantly against the powerhouse Sounders, taking a 1-0 lead into halftime thanks to a Maurice Edu header. But Seattle proved to be too strong, taking the match and the Cup 3-1 in extra time.
