Przybylko taps home goal in 84th, Union tie Revs 1-1
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Kacper Przybylko tapped in a deflected cross in the 84th minute and the Philadelphia Union tied the New England Revolution 1-1 on Wednesday night.
Eastern Conference-leading Philadelphia (9-4-5) has won seven of the past nine meetings in the series. New England (4-8-5) extended its unbeaten streak to five matches.
Brandon Bye scored in the 31st minute for New England’s first goal directly from a corner kick this season. He was first to Carles Gil’s cross at the near post and flicked it home past rookie goalkeeper Matt Freese for his first career goal.
Philadelphia tied it when second-half substitute Fabrice-Jean Picault raced past the defense and sent a cross in front of goal that Andrew Farrell misplayed and Przybylko knocked it home.
Neither team had played a league match since June 8 due to a Gold Cup break.
