Adailton scores to lead Chicago past short-handed Philadelphia
BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. (AP) — Adailton scored to help Chicago beat short-handed Philadelphia for its first victory of the season.
Chicago (1-3-0) scored in the 37th minute when Adailton slipped the defense, deftly cut in front of goalkeeper Rais M'bolhi and flicked a header into the open goal off pass from Harrison Shipp.
Philadelphia (0-2-2) played the final 20 minutes down a man after Fred was shown a red card for throwing a punch at Shipp after a tackle at midfield. The Union were already missing four regulars, with Cristian Maidana, C.J. Sapong and Conor Casey out with injury, and Zach Pfeffer serving a suspension.
Sean Johnson wasn't forced to make a save in the shutout.
