News roundup: Curtin’s presser, Steel beat Red Bull II, Nor’easters on a roll

Philadelphia Union

Curtin’s weekly conference call was yesterday. Over to you, Nick.

Fabian Herbers played eighty three minutes yesterday, making it unlikely he’d be the one filling in for an injured C.J. Sapong or suspended Cory Burke.

Sebastien Le Toux launched the website for his (private) coaching services. If some of those photos look familiar, it’s because they were taken by our own Earl Gardner.


The Steel beat Red Bull II 3-0, beating a team other than the Kickers for the first time this season.

Along with Fabian Herbers and Adam Najem, Michee Ngalina scored last night becoming the youngest-ever goalscorer for Bethlehem Steel FC.

Why was Cory Burke able to play last night after getting red-carded on Saturday in Toronto? “The USL shall determine if it will permit a player who receives a red card or other supplemental discipline in another competition for an egregious act to play in USL matches.”

This Saturday, 28 teams, representing 24 different clubs, will compete in the 2018 Eastern Pennsylvania Presidents Cup Finals at United Sports Training Center in Downingtown.

The only midweek MLS match had Vancouver and San Jose drawing, 2-2.

Another Miami delay. There’s a fine line between optimism and delusion, Becks. Let it go . . . you lost to Orlando.
