FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Sebastien Le Toux, a former Sounders FC player, scored two goals to lead the Philadelphia Union to a 3-1 victory over the New England Revolution on Saturday, giving interim manager Jim Curtin a victory in his debut as a Major League Soccer coach.

Philadelphia has scored three goals in four of its last five matches.

The Union scored late in the first half. New England defender Jose Goncalves headed the ball back toward goalkeeper Brad Knighton, but it was intercepted and poked into the net by Le Toux in the 42nd minute for a 1-0 lead. Le Toux also scored in the 78th minute.
