CHESTER, Pa. (AP) — Conor Casey scored twice, lifting the Philadelphia Union past the New York Red Bulls 3-0 on Sunday.

Casey had a goal disallowed in the fourth minute because he was offside. But he responded with a goal three minutes later, and one in 64th minute.

Antoine Hoppenot also scored for the Union in the 88th minute.

The Union (7-5-4) pulled even with New York (7-6-4) for third place in the Eastern Conference standings. Philadelphia also snapped a five-match losing streak to the Red Bulls.

After Casey’s first goal, the Union controlled the tempo the rest of the way. In the 28th minute, New York’s Lloyd Sam was given a red card following a hard foul on Philadelphia’s Danny Cruz. New York was never able to generate much offense down a player.
