Last Game vs. Philadelphia Union
Earthquakes 2, Philadelphia Union 4; Aug. 24, 2014; PPL Park in Chester, Penn.

The Earthquakes fought back from an early 2-0 deficit to tie the game, but gave up two late goals to fall 4-2 to the Philadelphia Union. The Union struck first with a goal from Andrew Wenger on a well-executed counter attack. After a touch to free himself, Wenger blasted a shot to the far post upper corner for a 1-0 advantage. The Union quickly stretched the lead to two goals off the foot of Le Toux after a short clearance in front of the Quakes goal. A cross into the box was redirected away from goal and Le Toux volleyed home the Union’s second goal of the night. Sam Cronin brought the Quakes to within a goal with a great hit from outside the box. He volleyed a shot into the upper corner, earning a AT&T MLS Goal of the Week nomination. Wondolowski knotted the game at two goals apiece with a volley at the back post in the 70th minute thanks to a Shea Salinas cross. Sheanon Williams immediately hit back for the Union with a header at the near post. Le Toux whipped in a free kick to the near post and Williams flicked it past Busch for a 3-2 advantage. Wenger scored the fourth for Philadelphia with a strong individual effort, breaking behind the Quakes’ defense at midfield and finishing near post.
