MLS veteran scored a brace to push his goal total to nine.
Philadelphia Union beat a young D.C United side to move to third in the Eastern Conference on Saturday at a sold out PPL Park.
D.C. United fielded their youngest starting lineup in franchise history for Saturday’s nationally televised showdown against the Philadelphia Union, and they were put to the sword by MLS veteran Conor Casey, who moves onto nine goals this season, fifth in the league standings.
Casey opened the scoring in the 35th minute when Sebastien Le Toux flicked on a cross from right back Sheanon Williams. The ball came on to Casey who controlled it down and dug a poke out from under his feet past Bill Hamid.
The assist was Le Toux’s 11th of the season and was the eighth for Williams, who’s now tied for second in league in the category. Le Toux then pushed his assist total to 12 in the league in the build up to Philadelphia’s second, when Casey volleyed home from a cross in the 75th minute.
