The Union proved too hot to handle on Wednesday, defeating the Fire, 3-1, in Chicago for their first road victory since July. Goals by Jack McInerney, Gabriel Gómez, and Antoine Hoppenot were enough to stop the Fire, ending their six-game winning streak at home. The Union made two changes to the lineup that lost in Columbus, 3-2, on Saturday. Striker McInerney came in for Josué Martinez, while Keon Daniel replaced Gabriel Farfan. It wouldn' take long - seven minutes - for those changes to take effect on a rain-slicked surface.

THREE GOALS weren't enough for the Union at Montreal on Saturday night. Jack McInerney, Antoine Hoppenot and Sebastien Le Toux scored but the Union lost, 5-3, to the Impact (7-2-2). "You can't let this one linger for too long. We still have a lot of games left," McInerney said of the 5-5-3 Union. "Obviously, we have a game on Tuesday and a big game next Saturday on the road, so it's time to regroup - and I think we'll be OK. We'll recover. " The Union has a busy week. It plays tomorrow night (7:30)

For the second straight game, the Union failed to put away a shorthanded opponent. Javier Morales' penalty kick in stoppage time hit the post and bounced across the goal mouth into the net past a helpless Zac MacMath to salvage a 2-2 tie for 10-man Real Salt Lake (10-5-4) in Sandy, Utah, on Wednesday night. The Union had taken the lead on Sebastien Le Toux's goal in the 13th minute off a Conor Casey pass. Real defender Lovel Palmer was shown a red card and sent off in the 59th minute for a late challenge on Michael Farfan.

FOR A TEAM that spent all week training with two-a-days in preparation for its first season in the English Premier League, AFC Bournemouth had plenty of energy left for last night's friendly against the Union. The Union's defense struggled to keep up with the quick pace and crisp passing of the Cherries in a 4-1 loss at PPL Park. Bournemouth peppered Union goalkeeper John McCarthy early and often as they moved up and down the field with ease, tallying 18 shots. "For our guys, it's a big lesson learned," Union manager Jim Curtin said.

SINCE THE UNION traded up to draft him first overall in January's MLS SuperDraft, goalkeeper Andre Blake's opportunities to play have been limited to a pair of appearances in the U.S. Open Cup, a stint with the Jamaican national team and in training sessions during the week. With the Union mired in a bye week from MLS competition, Blake got the nod in goal over starter Zac MacMath for last night's friendly with Crystal Palace, of the English Premier League. And although Philadelphia came out on the losing end, Blake displayed his talent, making several great saves in a 1-0 defeat at PPL Park.

Nobody on Crystal Palace FC could get the ball past Union goalkeeper Andre Blake in the first half Friday night. They tried a bicycle kick, headers, and took shots from the left and right and everywhere in between, only to be thwarted by Blake. Instead, it was his own team that did Blake in. He couldn't save a header from Union defender Ethan White in the 20th minute and was forced to watch as the ball bounced off White's head high into the air for a goal. It was all the team from the English Premier League needed to defeat the Union, 1-0, in a friendly at PPL Park.

AT LEAST last Saturday, it was the Union that scored in the waning moments to snatch a tie from the jaws of defeat. But even though a lifeline header from midfielder Maurice Edu produced a 2-2 score with Real Salt Lake, it doesn't change the fact that it was necessary because the Union yet again surrendered a goal with less than 10 minutes to go in regulation. It started in the season opener when what should have been an outstanding win at Portland turned into a deflating, 1-1 draw, when the Timbers' Gaston Fernandez headed in a corner kick on virtually the last kick of the game.

The Union entered Saturday's clash with the Eastern Conference-leading Montreal Impact in a precarious spot. As the game kicked off, John Hackworth's crew held fourth place in a division where first and seventh place were separated by just seven points. They ended the night without any goals, and with one point instead of three. But playing the Impact to a scoreless draw brought some much-needed stability after last Sunday's 5-1 blowout loss at New England. Though the lack of scoring disappointed the 18,339 fans at PPL Park, the shutout was more important - especially since the Union (10-8-9, 39 points)

HARRISON, N.J. - The Union, of course, would always like to leave visitors' locker rooms with three points in the standings. But they took a personal victory from their 0-0 draw against New York at Red Bull Arena on Saturday night - the club's first point on the road against the Red Bulls. "It says a lot about our team and the way we've approached games this year," Union team manager John Hackworth said. The Union (10-7-8) are now 0-4-1 all-time at New York. Union goalkeeper Zac MacMath was busy throughout his ninth shutout of the season, the team's sixth clean sheet in its last 11 matches.
