Defensive Woes Continue For Union In Loss To Red Bulls

At least the Union kept all eleven players on the pitch Saturday at Red Bull Arena. That was a positive from the 2-1 loss, but not many other defensive positives could be taken from the game.

Chris Seitz proved yet again to be a concern in goal after giving up the game's first goal to Salou Ibrahim. Off of a corner, Seitz came out to punch the ball, but was way too late and instead making impact with the ball, he made impact with Jordan Harvey's head.

After tying the game at 1-1 on a Sebastien Le Toux goal, the Union looked to be dominating the rest of the game until Michael Orozco handled a ball in the box. Orozco misread his jump to head away a ball in the box. The handball led to a penalty kick for Juan Pablo Angel, who scored.

The Union played a very solid game in every other part of the game. For most of the second half, they were putting balls on net. Le Toux scored a goal and Jack McInerney missed an attempt at goal after coming on in the 78th minute.

The Union now fall to 1-3 on the season and travel out to the Home Depot Center to face the LA Galaxy next Saturday at 10:30.
