The Philadelphia Union (7-0-2, 23 points) nearly suffered their first loss of the 2018-2019 season, but a late goal helped them escape with a 2-2 draw against Players Development Academy (7-2-1, 22 points). PDA took the lead twice with goals from forward Jake Fish (8’) and midfielder Andrew Araya (41’). But the Union kept up the pressure and were rewarded with two goals from Quinn Sullivan (34’ and 62’). Sullivan is tied with Zion Scarlett for the team-lead in goals with six.

Staying close behind them in the Atlantic Division is Baltimore Armour (7-2-0, 21 points), who defeated Loudoun Soccer (2-5-0, 6 points) 1-0 on Saturday. Baltimore took the lead very early in the match with Toshi Davis scoring in just the fifth minute. From there, the Armour defense took over with Ian MacIver, Jeovany Gamez, Alexander Hafer, Eric Allen and Michael Britton working together to limit Loudoun’s attacking chances. Goalkeeper Peyton Carpenter earned his club’s third consecutive shutout between the posts.

In an Atlantic-Northeast Division battle, NYCFC (7-4-0, 21 points) got the best of D.C. United (7-2-2, 23 points), defeating their fellow MLS academy 2-1. Alex Palas (8’) and Simon Adjakple (30’) both scored for NYCFC, giving them a 2-0 lead just before halftime. United made things interesting late with a goal in the 80th minute by midfielder Markus Ramsey. But it wasn’t enough to prevent NYCFC from earning their third consecutive victory.

There were some nervy moments but the Philadelphia Union (6-1-0, 18 points) maintained the top spot in the Atlantic, squeaking past Players Development Academy (3-4-1, 10 points) 4-3. There were goals aplenty in this match, with the two high-scoring sides trading leads throughout. Philadelphia’s goals were scored by Brenden Aaronson (8’ and 84’), Axel Picazo (39’) and Ryan Becher (89’), while Dominic DeAlmeida (3’) and Kyle Linhares (15’ and 65’) scored for PDA. Saturday’s victory was the first time this season that the Union had a won game with a goal advantage.

The New York Red Bulls (6-1-2, 20 points) stayed in second in the Atlantic after defeating PA Classics (2-5-2, 8 points) 2-0. John Michael Tolkin gave the Red Bulls the very early lead with his goal in the fourth minute. They received an insurance goal in the form of a Jafi Alexis strike in the 58th minute and then went for a more conservative approach, looking to hold the lead. It paid off as the Red Bulls earned their first win in three matches.

BW Gottschee Academy (3-3-2, 11 points) got their third win of the season by knocking off Cedar Stars Academy-Monmouth (1-4-3, 6 points) 2-0. Marcus Gabrielli (41’) and Omar Gawish (87’) provided the goals for BW.

New York City FC (7-1-1, 22 points) remain at the top of the Northeast Division after drawing 1-1 with Atlantic Division for D.C. United (3-2-5, 14 points). At least for the first three quarters of the match, it appeared as if New York might walk away with all three points after Jonathan Jimenez hit a cracking strike in the 28th minute. But United have shown all season an innate ability to stay in matches and earn results late, as evidenced by midfielder Elian Nalerio’s goal in the 74th minute. Sunday’s draw was the fourth consecutive match in which has picked up a point.

Finally in the Southeast Division, Orlando City SC (5-2-1, 16 points) gained ground on first-place Chargers SC (7-1-2, 23 points) by beating their rival 4-1. Lucca Dourado Pereira (5’ and 65’) scored a brace for The Purple Lions . He was joined on the scoresheet by Kameron Lacey (9’) and Paulo Cesar Vieira Lino who scored a penalty kick goal in the 90th minute.
