SHEANON WILLIAMS took a pass from fellow defender Maurice Edu in his own half and raced up the right side of the PPL Park field. Williams turned on the boosters and danced by two defenders, getting all the way into the box to find Sebastien Le Toux with a quick crossing pass, and the Frenchman found the back of the net. It was Le Toux's second game in a row with a goal after not scoring in the team's first 13. It was the 58th minute. And the remaining 32-plus didn't matter. The Union had just scored its second goal in seven minutes to take a 3-0 lead over a Columbus Crew team that pounded the Union, 4-1, on April 25. The 3-0 score held final.
