Highlights: NYC 3, Philadelphia 2

What a beautiful day in the Bronx, as the three DPs each score a goal to put New York City ahead of the Philadelphia Union.

Frank Lampard got the scoring off with this shot in the 8th minute. Frank puts himself in the perfect place to pick up Tommy McNamara's blocked shot and put it in the back of the net

I don't think that was in any way intentional, but it was brilliant.

The second goal of the match was one of my favorite runs all season. Josh Saunders throws the ball to Jack Harrison, who powers his way down the pitch. Harrison picks up two defenders, loses the angle and without even looking kicks it backwards to David Villa who puts it in for his league-leading eleventh goal.

After those two, it's fitting that Andrea Pirlo scored his first MLS goal.

Simply beautiful. I love watching him play.

After taking that 3-0 lead early, we let Philadelphia back into the match when we should have put them away conceding a penalty and an own goal from Frédéric Brillant; that late-match collapse is as disconcerting as it is familiar.
