Mark Geiger didn't disappoint.

A great half by the Philadelphia Union was marred by a call that went Toronto FC's way at the half, and the sides went in to the locker room at 1-1.

The Union had a good chance early when Alejandro Bedoya hit a great cross from the right over to Chris Pontius, whose header went just wide of the goal.

2016 Player review: Fabian Herbers

Brotherly Game at related • 0 views

Fabian Herbers played a big role in the Union's offense during his rookie season, but did he make the most of it?

Overall, the sixth pick in the MLS SuperDraft had a pretty solid season coming off the bench for the Philadelphia Union. Fabian Herbers managed to put away three goals and supply seven assists in MLS this year, which is solid production from a rookie who came off of the bench for most of the season.
