CHESTER, Pa. (AP) — Ilsinho had two goals and an assist to spark a second-half rally and the Eastern Conference-leading Philadelphia Union beat the New York Red Bulls 3-2 on Saturday night.
The Union (9-4-4) trailed by two goals when Ilsinho entered as a substitute in the 53rd minute.
In the 60th minute, Ilsinho drove up the right side and swung a pass back to Jamiro Monteiro, who scored into the left corner. The Union tied it at 2-all a minute later when Ilsinho split a pair of defenders and punched home a right-footed shot.
The Red Bulls’ Sean Nealis conceded a penalty for a hand ball in the area in the 70th minute.
