The new signing made a big impact in just his second game for Philly, which continued its surprisingly robust form in Kansas.For the second time this season, reigning MLS Cup winner Sporting Kansas City found itself unable to beat the Philadelphia Union - a team which has failed to make the playoffs in each of the last two seasons - at home.
The Union won 2-1 against KC on May 14th, and took another point on Friday night as new signing Brian Brown scored as a sub in just his second MLS appearance, cancelling out Graham Zusi's opening strike.

"I am extremely happy for Brian," said Union interim manager Jim Curtin after the game. "He’s a really quiet, humble kid and for him to give us a goal like that in a big spot was huge.
"He’s a kid that in training shows every day that he just needs one chance and we always joke that he really only needs one look and tonight he proved us right."
Bown, 21, joined the Union in July after winning the Golden Boot in Jamaica's Red Stripe Premier League last year with 18 goals for Harbour View.
