Fire allow added-time penalty kick, tie Union

Updated: August 21, 2014 7:07AM

Sebastien Le Toux scored on a penalty kick in the 91st minute, and the Philadelphia Union came back to tie the Fire 1-1 on Saturday at Toyota Park.

Le Toux was awarded the penalty kick after Gonzalo Segares was called for a hand ball inside the penalty area. Segares turned his back on Le Toux’s shot, but the ball hit his right arm. Le Toux calmly slotted home the penalty kick inside the left post, past a diving Sean Johnson. He has scored five goals in his last six games for the Union (5-8-8).

Jeff Larentowicz headed home a corner kick from Harry Shipp in the 60th minute to give the Fire (3-4-11) a 1-0 lead. The duo failed to convert a similar play in the 37th minute when Larentowicz’s header was just high of the crossbar.

The Fire leads MLS with 11 ties.

Neither team had a player selected for the MLS All-Star Game when the rosters were announced Saturday.
