JUAN PABLO ANGEL'S goal in the 90th minute lifted Chivas USA to a 1-1 draw with the Union last night at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif. The Union (10-7-14, 44 points) had taken the lead in the 59th minute when Justin Mapp found space in the Chivas midfield and fired a shot from the edge of the box that was too much for goalkeeper Dan Kennedy. Freddy Adu was credited with an assist on the play. It was Mapp's third goal of the season. After pressuring the Union at the end of the match, Chivas got the tying score when Mike Lahoud connected with Angel, who was able to head the ball into the net. It was Angel's seventh goal in seven games with Chivas.

A day before facing the Los Angeles Galaxy, the Union traded midfielder-defender Gabriel Farfan on Tuesday to Chivas USA for allocation money and a 2014 Major League Soccer SuperDraft first-round pick. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Farfan had started three games and appeared in six this season. He played the entire game at outside back in Saturday's 1-0 victory over the host Chicago Fire, filling in for Sheanon Williams, who missed the game due to suspension. The twin brother of Union midfielder Michael Farfan, the 24-year-old signed with the club in 2011 and appeared in 51 games, making 43 starts in three seasons, scoring one goal and adding three assists.

All 10 remaining Chivas USA players and the goalkeeper crowded the goalmouth in the 82d minute of their match against the Union Friday. They lunged forward and then back, trying to time the Union shot. Seven yards away, Michael Farfan waited. Then he struck. A sloppy match turned frenzied late, and Farfan sealed a 3-1 comeback victory for the Union with one of the more unorthodox goals in soccer. He scored on an indirect kick from atop the 6-yard box - essentially a more harried, more crowded penalty kick from closer range.

CARSON, Calif. - An opportunity for the Union to regain first place in Major League Soccer's Eastern Conference disintegrated with just seconds left to play Sunday night. Chivas USA's Juan Pablo Angel scored in the 90th minute to force a 1-1 tie that kept the Union in second place with three games to play. "It definitely stings," said midfielder Justin Mapp, who scored the Union's goal. "We let two points get away, and, obviously, things are very tight in the playoff race.

The Union continue to show improvement, earning a point on the road over the weekend as they get ready for a steady diet of games at PPL Park. Saturday's 1-1 tie against Chivas USA at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif., improved the Union's Major League Soccer record to 3-7-2. The road record is now 1-7-1, but the next four MLS home games will be at PPL Park. The Union were coming off a 3-1 win June 27 in the opening of PPL Park, which was their best performance of the season.

Don't let the Union's shutout win Saturday fool you. Their defense has been a problem this season, and they know it. With his team having surrendered 24 goals, the second-highest total in the Eastern Conference as of Wednesday, Union manager John Hackworth is reevaluating some of his decisions. Hackworth essentially admitted at his weekly news conference that moving forward Aaron Wheeler to center back before the season has been a failure. Wheeler hasn't appeared in two consecutive games, and Hackworth said he is now back at forward, where he played in 2013.

CONOR CASEY'S wasn't a name heard all too often through the first 14 games of a struggle-filled season for the Philadelphia Union. Hindered by injury to begin the year, the veteran forward started three times and garnered inconsistent minutes. But in the Union's 3-0 road victory against a last-place Chivas USA club on Saturday night in Carson, Calif., Casey offered his most productive performance since last season. Entering the night with two shots on goal the entire year, he scored his first two goals of the season in a much-needed win for the Philly club.

It's not a shocking revelation that the Union are a team lacking confidence. A 2-7-5 start for a team that was expected to compete for a Major League Soccer Eastern Conference playoff spot would dent any team's psyche. What is a little surprising is how candid manager John Hackworth is when talking about his team's collective confidence, or lack thereof. "It is tough to define where exactly the confidence is," Hackworth said in a conference call from California, where the Union are preparing for Saturday's game against Chivas USA. "The players - I still think they believe in each other and themselves, but it is hard to believe and to keep that confidence when you continually are giving up goals the way we are. " The Union have allowed 24 goals, tied with Houston for the most in MLS. On Sunday, the Union lost, 4-1, on the road against Los Angeles.

It was not a win, but the Union extended their home unbeaten streak with a scoreless draw against Portland on Saturday night before a sold-out crowd of 18,740 fans at PPL Park. The Union (8-6-7) are now 4-0-2 in their last six matches at home. "We have a good locker room, and we have a group of guys that believe in what we're doing," said Union assistant coach Rob Vartughian, who took over manager John Hackworth's duties on the sideline for the night. Hackworth was suspended for Saturday's game after arguing with a referee in a victory over Chivas USA on July 12. While Hackworth was absent, the Union welcomed back forward Jack McInerney.

IT IS NOT how you start a game, but how you finish - just ask Zac MacMath. Now in his third season with the Union, the 21-year-old goalkeeper has enjoyed ups and downs throughout his professional career, but MacMath understands he must learn to finish games consistently to be considered a top MLS player. In Philadelphia's 20 games this season, the Union has dominated the first half, scoring 15 goals, while MacMath has allowed eight. The second half typically has been a different story.

Midfielder Gabe Farfan may have lost his spot as a starter this season, but he never lost his appreciation for the Union and their fans. Friday night's game promises to be an emotional one for Farfan, who will make his first Major League Soccer trip to PPL Park as an opponent when Chivas USA visits the Union. Farfan played a lot in the previous two years, mainly as a defender for the Union. He has always enjoyed the midfield more, and that is where he is mainly with Chivas USA, which plays at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif., along with the Los Angeles Galaxy.
