MLS expansion franchise Philadelphia Union enjoyed a 5-0 victory over the University of North Carolina in their first exhibition match.

Former Seattle Sounders attacker Sebastien Le Toux scored a first-half hat-trick as the Union showed plenty of offensive firepower.

Coach Peter Nowak said he was happy with the performance once the team got warmed up.

"The first half, the engine didn't start that well, but once we got started, we were able to score a couple of goals," Peter Nowak said.
