MOST COMMENTED

[MLS] Philadelphia rallied from a goal down at the half to defeat the Seattle Sounders, 3-1, before a sellout crowd of 18,775 in its first game at PPL Park in Chester, Pa.

The Union's Sebastien Le Toux equalized from the penalty spot and after Chris Seitz stopped Pat Noonan's penalty kick, Philly went ahead when Fred took advantage of some sloppy Sounder defending to score at the far post.

Rookie Danny Mwanga closed out the scoring, pouncing on a rebound after Kasey Keller failed to hold his first shot.

In Sunday's other game, Guatemalan Marco Pappa got his sixth goal of the season to give Chicago a 1-0 win over New England that extended the Fire's unbeaten streak to five games.
