CHESTER, Pennsylvania (WPVI) -- The Philadelphia Union-New York City game had what's called a raccoon delay on Wednesday night.

A raccoon snuck onto the pitch during the first half at Subaru Park in Chester, Pennsylvania.

The crowd cheered the critter on as workers chased it with a trash can.

It spent 161 seconds out on the field before he was captured and later safely released.

New York City went on to defeat Philadelphia 2-1.
