Over the past couple of weeks, ahead of Major League Soccer's Heineken Rivalry Week, there has been plenty of push back from fans of both D.C. United and the Philadelphia Union, as the league seems hell-bent on creating a rivalry between the two teams.
A year ago, you would have given up Philadelphia Union for dead if they gave up a third minute goal on the road. Not anymore. This is a good team. Can they get even better?

A late goal from Simon Dawkins tarnishes the Union's perfect home record.
The ten-man San Jose Earthquakes rallied to steal a point from the Philadelphia Union, who had been perfect at home up to that point. Simon Dawkins's late goal equalled out Chris Pontius's first-half strike.
The Union got their goal off a 30th-minute corner kick.

No Union game over the weekend but there's plenty of news.
What were the moments in the game that had a ripple effect on the rest of the match?
Pontius' goal was really a team effort. While Chris Pontius will be on the scoresheet, it was Josh Yaro, Warren Creavalle, and Ray Gaddis whose hard work started the entire thing. San Jose was driving down the Union's right flank, and Josh Yaro did well to challenge a pass to Simon Dawkins.
The results of this week's fan vote are in, and we have our first repeat winner who is not named Andre Blake.
The fans chose CJ Sapong as this week's MVP for his work on the second Union goal and overall work up top against NYCFC. In a very tight race, however, Chris Pontius took the overall rating when compiling the four scores out there on the superweb.
Happy Saturday everyone. Unfortunately no Union game this weekend, so hopefully these links will be enough to fill the void.
