The second straight 1-0 victory marks the first winning streak in franchise history for the Union.

Central defender Carlos Valdes enjoyed a strong debut with the Union in their MLS season opener on Saturday, a 1-0 win at Houston. Valdes frequently covered up for teammates who were beaten by an attacking Dynamo team. Though he was cool under fire, the 25-year-old Valdes admits to being a little nervous entering his home debut. The Union will host the Vancouver Whitecaps at 4 p.m. Saturday at sold-out PPL Park. "I am excited, but I feel a lot of responsibility because it is my first game in front of the fans, and I want to start out well," Valdes said through an interpreter.

What: Vancouver Whitecaps (2-0-1, 7 points) at Union (0-3-0, 0 points) When: Saturday, 4 p.m. Where: PPL Park, Chester TV: 6ABC About the Whitecaps: Vancouver is undefeated but considers itself lucky given what goalkeeper Joe Cannon described as a "flat performance" against D.C. United in its last match. The Whitecaps salvaged a point thanks to a scoreless draw at home. . . . One of Vancouver's flaws is its inability to finish, and that will only get tougher with the absence of Swede Eric Hassli, out with an ankle sprain.

A YEAR AGO, the Union had a 2-0-1 record after three games and sat in first place in MLS' Eastern Conference. This year, after six regulars disappeared from the roster in the offseason, the Union is 0-3-0. But Sebastien Le Toux will be back in PPL Park on Saturday . . . playing for the Vancouver Whitecaps. The latest Union loss was by 1-0 on Saturday at Chicago. "It's never easy to be in a situation like we are right now after three games," team manager Peter Nowak said.

On Monday, Crystal Palace touched down more than 3,000 miles from its Selhurst Park home in the London suburbs. Its first stop: Talen Energy Stadium in Chester. Kicking off a North American preseason tour, the English Premier League team, which was founded in 1905, is set to take on the Union in an international friendly on Wednesday at 7 p.m. The rest of its tour is to include a game against FC Cincinnati on Saturday and a matchup with the Vancouver Whitecaps next Tuesday. While the games mean little to its MLS and USL opponents, which are in the middle of their seasons, Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew anticipates a challenging week.

Another game for the Union, another glut of goals conceded. Only this time, they couldn't compensate with a lethal strike. The Union lost to the Vancouver Whitecaps, 3-2, on Saturday at Talen Energy Stadium. It was the Union's third game in a row allowing three goals, and the team has let up 14 goals in their last six MLS games. Union defender Keegan Rosenberry lamented the goals his team allowed, arguing they were simple errors. "I think you look [at it that way] it's preventable for us, as opposed to a team picking us apart with 20 passes at a time and finishing us off," Rosenberry said.

The Union's defensive miscues are becoming a trend. For the third straight Major League Soccer game, the Union allowed three goals Saturday night. Unlike in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Chicago Fire, this time the Union couldn't survive. After taking a 1-0 lead, the Union allowed the next three in a 3-2 loss to the Vancouver Whitecaps before 17,225 fans at Talen Energy Stadium. The Union (7-5-5, 26 points) remained in first place in the Eastern Conference, while Vancouver improved to 7-7-3 (24 points)

The Union sit on top of Major League Soccer's Eastern Conference and are unbeaten in nine of their last 10 MLS games, but a recent trend of allowing goals can't be ignored. And it hasn't. The Union (7-4-5, 26 points) have allowed eight goals in their last three MLS games, following a 4-3 win Wednesday over the visiting Chicago Fire. And that doesn't count the two goals they surrendered in a 3-2 U.S. Open Cup win on June 15 against the Harrisburg City Islanders. So counting that game, it's been four straight games in which they have allowed two or more goals.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia - As if the circumstances going into Brian Sylvestre's first-ever start in Major League Soccer weren't already strange enough, add this to the mix: It came against the Vancouver Whitecaps, the team that brought him into the pros four years ago. Although Sylvestre made some fine saves, he and the rest of the Union's defense were simply overwhelmed in a 3-0 loss at BC Place. "It was frustrating," Sylvestre said. "We lost as a group. It's not on any individual performance.

Union defender Sheanon Williams has gone from franchise cornerstone to a player battling to remain in the starting lineup. Like many of his teammates, the 25-year-old Williams has gotten off to a rough start this year for the 1-6-3 Union, who visit the Vancouver Whitecaps (5-3-2) on Saturday. Williams is part of a defense that has surrendered 18 goals, the most in Major League Soccer. Union coach Jim Curtin has moved Williams to the left outside back spot, with Ray Gaddis switching over to the right.

AFTER TWO preseason training stints in Florida, the Union is back in town and preparing for Saturday's season opener against the Colorado Rapids at PPL Park (4 p.m., 6ABC). There's just one small problem: The game might not happen. Major League Soccer and the players union are locked in contentious negotiations over a new collective bargaining agreement. With the first game leaguewide of 2015 set for Friday night - Chicago at Los Angeles (10 p.m., UniMás) - time is running out to get a deal done.

A DECADE ago, new Union defender Steven Vítoria left his native Toronto to join the youth academy of Portuguese powerhouse FC Porto. Back then, Major League Soccer didn't have any teams in Canada, and the nation's soccer infrastructure was limited. So it made more sense for him to move abroad at age 18 in order to realize his dreams of playing professional soccer. Vítoria's parents had immigrated from the Azores to Toronto before he was born, which made Portugal a natural cultural fit. And being invited to join a big club was too good an opportunity to pass up. But Vítoria never quite settled at Porto, in part because he was loaned out a few times to other Portuguese clubs.
