HARRISON, N.J. - The Union better hope the adage "defense wins championships" holds weight, because its offense still has many holes to fill as its quest for the MLS Cup gets under way next week. In its final game of the regular season last night at Red Bull Arena, the Union lost, 1-0, and was flat-out exposed on prime-time television by a New York side hungry for one of the final playoff spots. The Union (11-8-15, 48 points), which already clinched a postseason berth, was playing for a shot at the top seed in the Eastern Conference.

HARRISON, N.J. - In this case, desperation won out. The New York Red Bulls, needing a win or draw to clinch a Major League Soccer playoff berth, defeated the Union, 1-0, on an own goal off keeper Faryd Mondragon in Thursday's regular-season finale for both teams in front of 25,044 at a sold-out Red Bull Arena. The Union (11-8-15, 48 points) secured a playoff berth in their last game, Saturday's 1-1 tie with visiting Toronto. However, a tie or win would have clinched one of the top three berths in the Eastern Conference for the Union and thus avoided a wild-card game.

KANSAS CITY, Kan. - Union manager Peter Nowak has a history of achieving results with improvised lineups. But on Friday night, Nowak faced one of the most challenging tasks of his tenure. Four of the Union's most important players - goalkeeper Faryd Mondragon, defender Sheanon Williams, midfielder Freddy Adu, and forward Danny Mwanga - all were unable to play against Sporting Kansas City due to injuries. But despite all those absences, the Union found a way to get a point once again.

Looking for a spark to end a two-month winless streak, the Union used a new tactic - inserting their youngest player into the starting lineup. Zach Pfeffer, a junior at Upper Dublin High who turned 16 in January and was the Union's first homegrown player, earned his first Major League Soccer start and appearance. And with Pfeffer playing aggressively in midfield, the Union beat the Columbus Crew, 1-0, on Saturday at PPL Park in Chester, snapping a 0-3-5 skid. It was the Union's first win since a 3-0 victory on July 17 at New England.
