Union come close, but fall to Red Bulls in penalty kicks

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.
