The Union were looking for penalty call in the 33rd minute when Alexander Buttner tackled Alejandro Bedoya. The left back’s late effort didn’t draw the attention of the refereeing staff or the video assistant referee.
The Union broke the deadlock just before halftime when Sergio Santos collected his eighth goal of the year. The play began with a corner kick that wasn’t properly cleared. Jakob Glesnes ultimately offered a cross that Alejandro headed towards goal. The attempt hit the woodwork, allowing Santos to clean up the aftermath.
Philadelphia almost got a second goal off of a set piece in the 55th minute but Matt Turner used his quick reflexes to keep the ball out of the net.
Turner was beat in the 69th minute when Cory Burke scored a tap in. The ball was played in by Jose Martinez, who streaked forward before playing a low cross.
The Revs finished the night with nine shots with only one being on target, a disappointing stat since all three Designated Players were on the field for 77 minutes.
The Revs will now turn their attention to the playoffs, as they will play the Montreal Impact on Friday, Nov. 20.
