With a little help from some great air-touch passes by his teammates, Danny Mwanga shows why he was the top overall pick in the MLS draft this year. 

The goal was Mwanga's fifth of the season. Pretty impressive given that he was eased into being a starter and getting a full complement of minutes. Brilliant passing led to Mwanga's open streak on goal, with Roger Torres and Sebastien Le Toux each advancing a perfect ball forward. (btw, VOTE LE TOUX)

The Union tied Chivas USA, 1-1, to earn a rare road point. Chivas is a team it would've been nice to beat, but overall, Peter Nowak's team is really showing signs of coming together. Should be an exciting run this summer, especially considering how well they've played in PA and the home-heavy schedule that is now underway.

Temple to take part in Gildan Charleston Classic this November

For a second straight season, a Philly-area team is making a late-autumn trip to Charleston, South Carolina.

Temple announced Wednesday afternoon head coach Fran Dunphy and his team will partake in the 10th annual Gildan Charleston Classic, taking place on Nov. 16, 17 and 19. The Owls will open against Old Dominion at 2 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 16, before a matchup with either Auburn or Indiana State the following day. They will then wrap up their run at the event with a Sunday contest against one of Clemson, Dayton, Hofstra or Ohio.

Last year, Villanova took home the crown at the same event in Charleston's TD Arena — home of the College of Charleston — after the Wildcats took out Central Florida, 67-57. 2017 will be Temple's third appearance at the Charleston Classic, following a second-place effort back in 2008 and a fifth-place finish in 2013.

The Owls have yet to announce their full nonconference schedule, but AAC matchups were released earlier this summer. Temple is returning a trio of double-digit scorers from last season in Quinton Rose, Obi Enechionyia and Shizz Alston, Jr., along with redshirt senior Josh Brown. They'll also add four freshmen into the mix this season as Dunphy looks to take the Owls back to the NCAA Tournament after missing it last year.
