PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — What a difference a week makes. After stumbling badly in their season opener in Dallas, the Philadelphia Union pick up a tough road win against Columbus Crew, their first road win ever against them. And the KYW Philly Soccer Show talks with the hero of the game, midfielder Chris Pontius. KYW’s Greg Orlandini and CBS-3’s Kevin Kinkead talk with the former DC United man, who scored both Union goals in the team’s 2-1 win against the Crew.
Pontius talks about working with the team since coming over from DC in the off season. He also talks about missing time over the last few season due to injuries and the hard work he put into coming back and contributing to the Union.READ MORE: New Jersey Native, Who Lost Daughter In Parkland Shooting, Fighting To Protect School Children Across Nation
