PSP photographer Paul Rudderow was on hand Tuesday night as the Philadelphia Union resumed play from the abandoned game against the Seattle Sounders. As in the past, it was a tail of two halves as the Union fell behind three goals in the first half but were unable to close the gap and ended with a 2-3 loss.
