MLS: Union, Charlotte FC play to scoreless draw


Share post:

Charlotte FC goalkeeper Kristijan Kahlina extended his scoreless streak against the high-powered Philadelphia Union, who added their unbeaten road streak in a 0-0 draw Saturday night.

Charlotte (6-5-4, 22 points) has allowed only 13 goals this season.

Philadelphia (4-4-6, 18 points) has an eight-match road unbeaten streak (3-0-5).

It was a matchup of Philadelphia’s offense, which ranks among the best in the MLS, and Charlotte’s defense, which is contending for top status in that category.

Kahlina, who stopped five shots, is unscored upon in five matches in May.

Philadelphia goalkeeper Oliver Semmle made four saves.

Neither team scored in the first half, with Kahlina making three saves.

Semmle scurried out of the net to thwart a strong scoring attempt from Charlotte’s Nikola Petkovic in the 11th minute.

About seven minutes later, one of Kahlina’s most dramatic stops came with his foot on a point-blank shot by Jack McGlynn. That chance was set up by Julian Carranza’s pass on a header.
