     The MLS (major league soccer) season started in March. The Philadelphia Union played their first match on Sunday, March 5th against the Vancouver Whitecaps FC (FC stands for football club because in other countries soccer is called football). The game ended in a tie 0-0. In their next match, they played Toronto FC, the game ended 2-2. Philadelphia lost against Orlando City 2-1. The Union either lost or tied their next five games.

     Beginning on Saturday May 6th, the Union took to a winning streak, playing the New York Red Bulls and winning the game 3-0. At their next game, the Union played D.C. United and they won 4-0. Next, the Union played the Houston Dynamo. The Union won 2-0.

     This had the Union feeling confident as they met their next opponent on Saturday, April 20th, 2017. The Union played the Colorado Rapids and Philadelphia won their fourth game in a row which is a new franchise record. They won 2-1. Previously, the most games that the Union had won in a row was three games. On Sunday May 28th, the Union will play Real Salt Lake to see if the Union can win their fifth game in a row.

Sadly, the Union’s winning streak ended when they lost 1-0 against Real Salt Lake on Saturday May 27th. Hopefully the Union will be on another winning streak soon.
