The Philadelphia Union failed to capitalized on their chances and it ended up costing them the game, as luck was not on their side in a loss in penalty kicks. You could see the New York Red Bulls' goal coming from a mile away in the first half, it was just surprising that it came in the 42nd minute, as the Red Bulls peppered the Union throughout the first half with shots.
