Coming off the bench for the Union, CJ Sapong earned the IBX Live Fearless Man of the Match award, voted on by you, the fans.
Who's your @IBX Live Fearless Man of the Match?— Philadelphia Union (@PhilaUnion) April 2, 2017
Sapong entered the match in the 59th minute, and immediately made an impact on the Union's offense. His physical play allowed the Union to establish themselves in the attacking third, and in the 71st minute, potted his third goal in as many games.
Sapong's three goals in three games is the second longest goal streak of his career; his longest being a four-game streak in June 2015. In the match, Sapong also led the Union in shots and shots on goal, with five and four, respectively. Sapong nearly added a second to draw the Union even with DC United, but United keeper Bill Hamid made a highlight-reel diving save to keep Sapong at one goal.
Look for Sapong to tie his longest goal streak of his career when the Union host Portland Timbers for the Home Opener Part DOOP on Saturday, April 8. Kick-off is at 7:00 p.m.
