[MLS REWIND Week 20] The Philadelphia Union rallied for a goal down to beat Chivas USA, 3-1, in driving rain Friday night at PPL Park.

The game turned in the 82nd minute when the Union was awarded an indirect free kick for an illegal backpass and Michael Farfan scored off a pass from Sebastien Le Toux to put the Union ahead. Conor Casey added his seventh goal of the year in the 89th minute  on an assist from Brazilian Fabinho, who was making his MLS debut.

The loss extended Chivas USA's winless streak to 14 goals. It was without Carlos Bocanegra, whose International Transfer Certificate did not arrive in time for him to make his debut.

-- Playing in his first game at RFK Stadium, Jamaican teenager Michael Seaton set up Carlos Ruiz's with his first touch of the ball, but D.C. United gave up a tying goal in stoppage time and had to settle for a 1-1 tie with Guadalajara of Mexico before before 12,197 fans. Another homegrown product, Collin Martin, came on in the second half for his D.C. United appearance since signing out of Wake Forest.

-- The Colorado Rapids fell to Santos of Mexico, 2-1, in a game played before 9,042  fans at University Stadium in Albuquerque, N.M. Colorado Chilean midfielder Kevin Harbottle put the Rapids ahead on a free kick, but Santos won on goals by Alonso Escoboza and Nestor Calderon.
