CHESTER, Pa., June 27 (UPI) -- Sebastien Le Toux, Fred and Danny Mwanga each scored second-half goals Sunday to power the Philadelphia Union to a 3-1 victory over Seattle.

Trailing 1-0 entering the second frame, Le Toux got the equalizer on a penalty kick in the 54th minute after Seattle defender Tyrone Marshall took down Alejandro Moreno in the penalty area.

Fred gave Philadelphia the lead in the 79th minute with his first goal of the year after Le Toux's shot found him at the back post for an easy tap-in.

Mwanga notched an insurance goal on another penalty kick in the 84th minute.

Seattle (4-7-3) got its goal from Pat Noonan 44 minutes into the contest.
