Union's Edu, Wenger score in 2-2 with Real Salt Lake

Four of the Union’s six games this season have ended in ties.

UNION FORWARD Maurice Edu scored in the 90th minute to give Philadelphia a 2-2 tie with Real Salt Lake at PPL Park on Saturday.

Andrew Wenger, acquired last week in a trade with Montreal, opened the scoring for the Union (1-1-4) in the 55th minute, assisted by Vincent Nogueira.

Union goalkeeper Mac MacMath made five saves against Real Salt Lake (2-0-4).

"We played some good soccer throughout the game," Union manager John Hackworth said. "We possessed the ball, went side to side and made them do a lot of work. Eventually that wore them down a little bit. The hard part for us was I don't think we were really strong with our execution."

The Union next play at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday (The Comcast Network) at the New York Red Bulls, and return to PPL Park at 4 p.m. Saturday.
