The Philadelphia Union made history once again on Sunday night as they defeated Nashville SC on a cold November night in Chester. It took 120 minutes and kicks from the spot to determine the winner, but the Union emerged victorious to move on to their first ever Conference Final appearance in club history. Philly Soccer Page had two photographers on-hand to capture the scenes at Subaru Park on what was an incredible night for fans who had waited more than a decade to see their team reach this point.
