90+' - Too much salsa from Marcelo Sarvas. Back to Josh Saunders. I think this match highlights everything that has gone wrong for LA this season. Bad finishing. Bad touches. Bad passing. You name it, the Galaxy are guilty of it.
That looked dangerous right there for the Galaxy. Goal kick for Zac MacMath.
GOAL! Philadelphia Union 21 Michael Farfan
That looks like the game-winner right there. And this is history right here, the Union defeating the Galaxy for the first time in their history.
Yellow card 20 A.J. DeLaGarza

Stay tuned for a recap of this match on the View from Victoria Street and Bleacher Report.
90' - And David Junior Lopes had better be careful here...
Six minutes of additional time. I am going to condense them all into one big minute here.
89' - And Jack McInerney is down, to the disgust of Bruce Arena.
88' - Galaxy win a restart. And another one. This is some tenacious football from the Union.
87' - Well, LA are getting a lot of looks but not the lead. And that free kick is cleared. Here's Lionard Pajoy. Pinballed out.
86' - LA on the attack. Free kick for Donovan.
85' - Another throw to the Union. Still a wide-open game. Marcelo Sarvas with a poor touch.
84' - Another good look right there for the Galaxy. Goal kick to the Union.
83' - That is far, but it will be a corner to Philadelphia. That doesn't materialize.
82' - A.J. DeLaGarza couldn't keep that in. Saunders swoops for the save.
81' - Corner LA. That is high from Chad Barrett. Well, he's finishing like Chad Barrett again. Goal kick, Zac MacMath.
80' - Chad Barrett was not going to win that ball. Good play by Sean Franklin.
79' - Not a very good free kick. That was close to being a penalty. This could be another 1-1 draw. Second straight. But there is plenty more football ahead.
78' - Free kick from close range.
Yellow card 18 Zac MacMath
77' - Antoine Hoppenot with a run that could have brought the lead back for the Union.
76' - And we got some pushing and shoving between both teams. I told you this was a pillow fight. One of my personal pet peeves: bad passes in bunches.
75' - That free kick is high and cleared.
Substitution Philadelphia Union
IN 23 Lionard Pajoy
OUT 26 Keon Daniel
Here comes Lionard.
74' - So now it's a wide-open contest. Everything to play for, etc. Barrett nearly got to that ball. And LA concede a foul. Free kick, Philly.
73' - GOAL! Los Angeles Galaxy 9 Chad Barrett
There's the equalizer. Game on!
72' - Take three. Well, the corners are piling up for LA. Here's a throw. And another throw. Philly's version of parking the bus?
71' - Substitution Philadelphia Union
IN 29 Antoine Hoppenot
OUT 11 Freddy Adu
Corner, Juninho. Take two.
70' - What a save from MacMath!
Yellow card 14 Amobi Okugo
69' - Terrible clearance by DeLaGarza. Saunders bails him out. The issue with LA is that they are not testing Zac MacMath. And this could lead to their 10th defeat of the season.
68' - Well, Armando Villareal is going to let the players play, apparently.
67' - There's a chance. It will be a corner. Donovan to take. That's cleared. Back to A.J. DeLaGarza.
