JUST BECAUSE the Union hosts a Mother's Day showdown against rival Red Bull New York on Sunday doesn't mean it is overlooking Wednesday's friendly against Schalke 04. It can't afford to. The German visitors are 3 days removed from a successful campaign in the German Bundesliga. Schalke's third-place finish secured a Champions League spot among the best in Europe next season. Although not a household name in the States, Schalke is no joke, and the Union knows it. The club features some of the world's premier talent, including midfielder Klaas Jan Huntelaar and veteran forward Raúl Gonzalez Blanco.

They can't afford to. This isn't a preseason match for the German visitors, but rather a U.S. visit three days removed from a successful campaign in the top-flight Bundesliga.

IF THE UNION takes shots from distance, but only a handful of people are around to see it, did it actually happen? Against Schalke on Wednesday night, the Union did it and did it often, exercising the freedom of unlimited substitutions and capitalizing on a young, hungry group looking to impress to beat the German giants, 2-1, in a friendly at PPL Park. Credit a pair of rookies with the game-winner, as an overlapping run and cross in the box from defender Raymon Gaddis down the left flank was deflected and rolled to the feet of forward Chandler Hoffman in the 88th minute.

SO THE UNION hasn't exactly gnashed its terrible teeth and we're still waiting for its terrible roar, but on Wednesday night against Schalke 04, the club did release some of its beasts — or demons, depending on how you look at it. For a club that hadn't mustered more than 10 shots on target in its previous two matches, the Union unleashed eight on Schalke, and even scored a pair, the game-winner from the run of play. Now take into account that it was a friendly and the Union showcased only a handful of its starting lineup for a limited time, but its efforts left many wondering where this team, Wednesday night's offensive-minded, take advantage of every opportunity collective has been for the past eight matches?

Might Union fans on Wednesday night be introduced to what would certainly be the cure to the club's scoring woes?

Major League Soccer's leading scorer, Thierry Henry, netted his ninth goal in the seventh minute, then went down with what appeared to be a serious hamstring injury in the 23d minute on Saturday. But the New York Red Bulls' defense made the 1-0 score stand up for a win over the New England Revolution in Harrison, N.J. Robin van Persie scored his 28th league goal to earn third-place Arsenal a 1-1 draw at Stoke City in the English Premier League. Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard tipped a shot from fellow American Clint Dempsey over the bar to preserve a 4-0 shutout of visiting Fulham.
