The Columbus Crew took a trip to the Philadelphia suburb of Chester, Pennsylvania, and came back empty-handed. No goals, no points, nothing!

The Union scored on a first half breakaway goal and never caught steam in losing 1-0.

Sebastien Le Toux scored the game’s lone goal in the 32nd minute to give Philadelphia their first win in 9 games.

The Crew drops to 11-10-8, 41 points on the season. They are very fortunate to still be in first place in the East as second-place Sporting Kansas City lost to Real Salt Lake.

The Crew returns home this Saturday to host Major League Soccer’s best team, the Los Angeles Galaxy.
