PHILADELPHIA UNION vs HOUSTON DYNAMO PPL PARK, Chester, Pa. Sept. 23, 2012 (WEEK 29, MLS Game #280) 4 p.m. ET (WPVI-abc6; FS-HOU+/MultiM) Philadelphia Union conclude their two-game home week with a crucial match against the Houston Dynamo in the playoff futures for both clubs on Sunday afternoon at PPL Park. For Union, the arithmetic is simple: Win, or they will be eliminated from playoff contention, following their 1-0 home loss to D.C. United at midweek. The Dynamo find themselves holding onto fifth place in the Eastern Conference and the final postseason spot by just a single point, following their 1-1 draw at Sporting KC last weekend.

A late Brian Ching penalty kick was the decider in a 2-1 Dynamo victory June 30 at BBVA Compass Stadium.  It was the Dynamo’s first win in league play vs. Philadelphia; Union had won two of the first four, with two draws. But Houston did win both legs of last year’s Eastern Conference Semifinal Series, a 2-1 win in Chester followed by a 1-0 victory in Houston, on their way to MLS Cup 2011.  Coaches record: John Hackworth vs. HOU: P1 W0 L1 D0 … Dominic Kinnear v PHI: P5 W1 L2 D2 LAST MEETING (MLS) 6/30: HOU 2, PHI 1 (Davis 20; Ching 83 – Daniel 46)  The Dynamo grabbed the lead in the 20th minute. Boniek Garcia’s cross from the right found Macoumba Kandji on the edge of the box. The forward slid the ball into the path of the onrushing Brad Davis, who superbly curled the ball into the far corner.  Union pulled back to even terms just 36 seconds into the second half. Brian Carroll found Keon Daniel at the top of the box, and the Philly midfielder turned and lash a bouncing drive beyond Houston goalkeeper Tally Hall from 20 yards.  But the home side claimed the winner in the 83rd minute after Gabriel Farfan’s sent the Dynamo substitute Brian Ching tumbling to the turf. Referee Fotis Bazakos awarded a penalty and Ching converted the ensuing spot kick himself.  HOUSTON DYNAMO (4-4-2): Tally Hall - Andre Hainault, Jermaine Taylor, Bobby Boswell, Corey Ashe Boniek Garcia, Geoff Cameron, Luiz Camargo (Warren Creavalle 79), Brad Davis - Will Bruin (Brian Ching 74), Macoumba Kandji (Brian Ownby 71).  PHILADELPHIA UNION (4-4-2): Zac MacMath - Sheanon Williams (Freddy Adu 84), Carlos Valdes, Amobi Okugo, Gabriel Farfan - Keon Daniel, Gabriel Gomez (Michael Lahoud 75), Brian Carroll, Michael Farfan Jorge Perlaza (Antoine Hoppenot 64), Lionard Pajoy. PHILADELPHIA UNION Philadelphia Union saw their winless streak extended to eight games as D.C. United scored the game’s only goal on Thursday evening at PPL Park. Union are in ninth place in the Eastern Conference with 27 points from 27 games. LAST MATCH

MLS GAME INFORMATION

The game's lone goal came in the 67th minute. Freed from a long ball out of midfield by Maicon Santos, United's Chris Pontius made a move in the box, forced Union goalkeeper Zac MacMath to come off his line and fed an open Lionard Pajoy, who took the time to settle the ball and then volley it into an empty net against his former team.  United goalkeeper Bill Hamid was credited with five saves for United, who won for a second time this season at PPL Park.  Union interim manager John Hackworth made three changes to the team that came back for a 1-1 draw with Toronto FC at BMO Field. Gabriel Gomez, Keon Daniel and Antoine Hoppenot came into the midfield, in place of Michael Lahoud, Freddy Adu and the suspended Michael Farfan.  PHILADELPHIA UNION (4-2-3-1): Zac MacMath - Sheanon Williams, Carlos Valdes, Amobi Okugo, Gabriel Farfan (Chandler Hoffman 70) - Gabriel Gomez (Freddy Adu 77), Brian Carroll - Danny Cruz, Keon Daniel, Antoine Hoppenot (Josue Martinez 57) - Jack McInerney. TEAM NEWS  Union saw their current winless streak extended to eight games, matching the club record set last July 29-Sept. 10.  “My feeling right now is that our team is struggling,” said Union team manager John Hackworth. “We’re doing everything possible to try put ourselves in a position to score and get attempts on goal, and for whatever reason, even though we had some really good looks, too many times in behind their defense and not to get something out of it, that’s tough.  The last Union victory came July 29, a 2-1 win vs. New England. They’ve gone 0-4-4 since, scoring just four goals in that span.  “We want to win every game, especially at home. … I thought we tried to play a lot more than they did. They sat back and really kind of tried to kill the game and catch us on the counterattack,” said Antoine Hoppenot. “It’s tough to lose a game like that. They ended up catching us on the counterattack and getting one and then they just sat back and killed the game off. It’s a tough one.”  Union’s last goal scored by a striker came July 29, when Jack McInerney netted the game-winner vs. New England. Defenders have scored the last two goals; the others in the current streak came from a holding midfielder and an own goal.  “A little bit of me feels like we can’t buy one, no matter what, because I think those goals are going to come with those young players,” said Hackworth. “The hard part about it is that this is their opportunity, and for young guys like this when they get this chance they really got to seize it. We’re going to keep on teaching it, but at some point those guys have to create the chances and finish them.”  With Michael Farfan suspended, Keon Daniel was given his first start since Aug. 21 in the attacking central midfield spot.  “All we can do right now is give guys opportunities, see what our combinations are, and tonight we tried something new and while it created a lot the quality wasn’t there. So we’ll just have to continue to do that. The one thing I’ll say about the team is they certainly didn’t give up,” Hackworth said. “In fact they almost tried too hard at the end. ... Guys are doing everything they can to put themselves in a position to get something off, but that’s not the smartest way to go about bringing yourself back in a game. So that’s something we have to work on.”  Rookie Antoine Hoppenot made his third league start, his second in the last three games, in a wide position opposite Danny Cruz.  Gabriel Gomez made his first appearance after not featuring at all over the past two matches because of international duty.  “We pushed Jack and Danny Cruz up high and tried to go with a more attacking lineup with Keon Daniel and [Gabriel] Gómez,” Hackworth said. “We’re going to keep trying some stuff. But, at the end of the day, we’ve got to start finishing some chances or we’re just going to have the same conversation again and again. I hope that doesn’t happen.”  With a loss or a tie vs. Houston, Union will be eliminated from playoff contention. HOUSTON DYNAMO The Houston Dynamo gained an important road point, Sporting Kansas City coming back with a late equalizer to leave the teams in a 1-1 draw on Friday evening at Livestrong Sporting Park. The Dynamo are in fourth place in the Eastern Conference with 46 points from 29 games. LAST MATCH  The Dynamo took the lead in the 58th minute. From a continuous spell of possession, Brad Davis took Boniek Garcia's pass in the middle of the attacking third, worked to his left to get into space, and put a low shot past a screened Jimmy Nielsen and inside the far post.

MLS GAME INFORMATION

But Sporting hit for a late equalizer in the third minute of stoppage time. Latching onto a loose ball at the top of the box, Graham Zusi chipped the ball to the far post and C.J. Sapond flung himself headlong at the ball, nodding it past goalkeeper Tally Hall to keep KC atop the East.  Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear made two changes to the team that claimed a late 1-0 win against Real Salt Lake at BBVA Compass Stadium. Jermaine Taylor and Boniek Garcia returned from international duty, coming into the team in place of Colin Clark and the suspended Calen Carr.  HOUSTON DYNAMO (4-3-3): Tally Hall - Kofi Sarkodie, Jermaine Taylor, Bobby Boswell, Corey Ashe (Andre Hainault 74) - Luiz Camargo, Ricardo Clark, Brad Davis - Boniek Garcia, Will Bruin (Brian Ching 88), Macoumba Kandji (Giles Barnes 81). TEAM NEWS  The Dynamo still have just one win in their last six league games, now sitting in fourth place in the Eastern Conference to start the week. But they have not lost in three meetings vs. East leaders Sporting KC.  “Hard-earned point as far as I’m concerned, the guys battled hard,” said head coach Dominic Kinnear. “The way it came about is tough but when you look at it, taking five out of nine points from Kansas City the guys should be pretty proud.”  “We weren’t looking for a tie. We were looking for a win,” said Brad Davis. “Sporting is ahead of us in points and we are trying to climb the ladder. That would have put us a couple points behind them. We are still in good place for playoffs. We have five games left and we have to keep moving along and picking up points.”  Davis scored his seventh goal of the season, a single-season career-high. Now in his 11th season, his previous best was six goals, in his second season of 2003, in 26 games for the Dallas Burn.  Boniek Garcia returned from international duty and recorded his third assist in his last four matches. He has six assists in his 13 MLS appearances.  Kofi Sarkodie made his second consecutive start, his first two of the league campaign, remaining at right back.  “He’s defended well and is winning a majority of his battles and is getting into the attack. I think he’s stepped in and done well,” said head coach Dominic Kinnear. “Before, the defense was just playing well and the guys that were playing well were playing. Now he’s gotten a chance … and he prepared himself well and has stepped on the field and looked good.”  Goalkeeper Tally Hall was credited with a season-high seven saves in preserving the single point for the Dynamo, seconds away from his 11th shutout of the season.  “His positioning was very good and the guys defended in front of him pretty well so there was nothing really clear cut until the very end,” Kinnear said. “I thought he put himself in the right spots and it made it easier for him to put his hands on some things.”  Said Davis: “Thirty more seconds and we clear that ball one more time he’s got a shutout record for himself. You really want to be able to depend on your goalie to come up with some big saves and keep you in the game and the last couple of games he’s done that. I think he was huge for us again.”  New signing Giles Barnes made his MLS and Dynamo debut, coming on for the final nine minutes in KC. “He’s shown pretty well in practice and it was a good opportunity to give him a chance to play,” Kinnear said. “I thought when he came on he did some good things.”  On Thursday, the Dynamo moved to the top of Group 4 in the CONCACAF Champions League with a 4-0 win against CD F.A.S. of El Salvador at BBVA Compass Stadium. Goals from Giles Barnes (21) and Bobby Boswell (44) gave the Dynamo a comfortable halftime lead, and Cam Weaver (49) and Colin Clark (78) finished off the victory.  Here’s the Dynamo team: Tyler Deric; Kofi Sarkodie, Andre Hainault, Bobby Boswell, Warren Creavalle; JeVaughn Watson (Calen Carr 58), Adam Moffat, Giles Barnes (Luiz Camargo 81), Colin Clark; Cam Weaver, Brian Ching (Alex Dixon 71)

    PHILADELPHIA UNION v HOUSTON DYNAMO   

|PPL Park | Sunday September 23, 2012 | 4pm ET        MATCH OVERVIEW    

Philadelphia Union and Houston Dynamo have met on seven previous occasions in MLS – including  twice in last season’s Playoffs.   The Union have the edge over Dynamo in regular season fixtures with a 2‐2‐1 record, while Dynamo  steal the upper hand overall (2‐2‐3) given their Playoff double over the Union in 2011.   The sides’ last MLS clash – 30th June 2012 – saw John Hackworth suffer a controversial 2‐1 defeat in  his first away fixture as manager; Brian Ching’s late penalty edging the home side to victory.   Last time the sides met at PPL Park was in the Playoffs last season; Houston with a narrow 2‐1 win  which would prove insurmountable following their 1‐0 win in the return fixture days later.   Both previous regular season fixtures between the clubs at PPL Park have ended 1‐1.   The  Union  will  welcome  back  Michael  Farfan  for  Sunday’s  game  after  the  midfielder  sat  out  Thursday’s defeat to D.C. United due to suspension (yellow card accumulation).        TEAM NEWS

PHILADELPHIA UNION  

   

   

   

EASTERN CONFERENCE POSITION: 9TH  LEAGUE RECORD: 7‐14‐6, 27pts 

Philadelphia Union have won seven, lost 14 and drawn six of their 27 MLS games this season.  The Union have drawn four of their last six MLS games, including their last three on the road (1‐1 at  DC, 0‐0 at New England, 1‐1 at Toronto).  John  Hackworth’s  side  have  continued  a  trend  of  dominating  possession  and  chances  across  their  last five games with limited reward, averaging a shade over 60% possession with 72 attempts made  compared to just 41 for their opponents.  The Union have a 5‐7‐2 record at home this season, losing three of their last four at PPL Park.  The Union’s last win at home came against New England Revolution on 29th July (2‐1).  Only  two  teams  (Sporting  KC,  25;  Seattle,  29)  have  better  defensive  records  than  the  Union  (32  conceded) this season.

EASTERN CONFERENCE POSITION: 5TH  LEAGUE RECORD: 12‐7‐10, 46pts 

 Houston Dynamo have won 12, drawn ten and lost seven of their 29 MLS games this season and sit  fifth in the Eastern Conference – eight points behind leaders Sporting Kansas City.   No other side has drawn as many MLS as Houston this season.   Following Thursday’s game at PPL Park which saw the Playoff rivals D.C. United defeat the Union 1‐ 0, Houston Dynamo now occupy  the final Playoff position but remain a point ahead of sixth‐place  Columbus Crew.   Dominic Kinnear’s side are the only unbeaten team on home soil this season but have lost seven of  their 15 games away from BBVA Compass Stadium.   With work not completed on the new arena until May 2012, Houston had the unusual situation of  spending their opening seven MLS games on the road. They won their opening two games (at Chivas  and San Jose) before settling into a 2‐2‐3 record.   Like the Union, Dynamo had an outstanding July – remaining unbeaten and conceding just one goal  – but have struggled for consistency since, winning two, losing two and drawing three of their seven  MLS games throughout August and September.    On  the road, Houston are winless in  their last  three after suffering  defeats  to New York Red Bulls  and Chicago Fire and drawing 1‐1 last time out at table‐topping Sporting Kansas City.   Goalkeeper  Tally  Hall  has  the  second‐highest  number  of  clean  sheets  (11)  in  MLS  this  season  –  second only to KC’s Jimmy Nielsen (12).     Houston  Dynamo  finished  second  in  the  Eastern  Conference  last  season  –  two  points  behind  winners Sporting Kansas City and one ahead of third‐placed Union.   Houston  eliminated  the  Union  from  the  Playoffs  at  the  Conference  Semifinal  stage  (3‐1  on  aggregate) before defeating Sporting KC 2‐0 in the Conference Final.   They  narrowly  lost  out  to  LA  Galaxy  in  the  MLS  Cup  2011;  Landon  Donovan  scoring  the  only  goal  after 72 minutes.      PRODUCED BY THE PHILADELPHIA UNION

HOUSTON DYNAMO 2‐1 PHILADELPHIA UNION – June 30th, 2012   

The  Union  slipped  to  a  controversial  2‐1  defeat  in  John  Hackworth’s  first  road  game  in  the  Union  hotseat as a late Brian Ching penalty gave the home side all three points.   Midfielder Brad Davis opened the scoring in the 19th minute; debutant Oscar Boniek Garcia picking  out Macoumba Kandji from the right, allowing the Senegalese forward to take a touch with his back  to goal and cushion a pass for Davis’ neat finish.   It took the Union just 35 seconds of the second period to draw level however; Keon Daniel capping a  flowing  move  with  an  excellent  first  touch  and  even  better  finish  from  25  yards  which  had  goalkeeper Tally Hall rooted.   The  visitors  were  almost  in  front  two  minutes  later  but  Hall  was  on  hand  to  deny  Michael  Farfan  from close range following another eye‐catching attack.   Houston  would  take  all  three  points  with  a  contentious  spot  kick  late  in  the  game  as  Brian  Ching  went down following an innocuous aerial battle with Sheanon Williams and Gabriel Farfan.   Ching picked the ball up himself before dispatching the penalty via Zac MacMath’s crossbar.    LAST MLS MATCH  PHILADELPHIA UNION 0‐1 D.C. UNITED – September 20th, 2012     Former Philadelphia Union striker Lionard Pajoy returned to haunt his old club on Thursday evening,  scoring the only goal as D.C. United earned a crucial 1‐0 win at PPL Park.   The win moved United above Houston into fourth position in the Eastern Conference.   D.C.’s goal came after smart work by Chris Pontius, who drew Union goalkeeper Zac MacMath from  his line before cutting back to Pajoy. The Colombian striker took the time to settle the ball before  dispatching a crisp half‐volley high into an empty net.

Daytime Dominance: The Dynamo will try to continue their excellent play in day games on Sunday at Philadelphia.  Houston is 5‐1 in day games this year. The 3‐1 loss at Vancouver on June 10 is the Dynamo’s only loss in a day game this  season. Houston has daytime wins over Chivas USA, San Jose, D.C. United, LA Galaxy and Toronto FC. The Dynamo are 5‐ 6‐9 in night games. Sunday’s day game at Philadelphia is the last remaining day game for the Dynamo.    

Short‐handed Dynamo earn resilient 1‐0 win over Real Salt Lake: Missing four players to international duty, and several  more to injury or a stomach virus, the Dynamo could only field a five‐man bench against Real Salt Lake on Sept. 6. In the  end, Colin Clark’s penalty four minutes into stoppage time was enough for the Dynamo to halt a four‐game winless streak.  In a goalkeeping exhibition, Tally Hall and Nick Rimando matched each other save‐for‐save, with Rimando saving a Brad  Davis penalty and Hall making outstanding saves on all three of Salt Lake’s shots on target. Hall earned his 11th shutout of  the year to equal former teammate Pat Onstad’s franchise record for shutouts in a season.
