DC United Snap Their Losing Streak As They Take Down Seattle 2-1
DC United earned itself 3 points at RFK for the first time since opening day way back on March 19th as they defeat the Seattle Sounders 2-1 in front of 11,254 fans Wednesday night.
Charlie Davies and Josh Wolff both had a goal and an assist in this game and Andy Najar chipped in with two assists of his own. With the win DC United moves up in the Eastern conference standings with 10 points. In what seemed to be the tale of two different teams, DC started the game with little to no purpose in their attack. Turnovers in the midfield, lack of precision in the attacking third all the things that has haunted DC in the past 2 league games.
But in the 31st minute on a counter Andy Najar played a ball upfront for Davies where he than made a move to shed off his defender with out even touching the ball putting him in perfect position to expose the Seattle back line and Goal Keeper where he than touched the ball back to a trailing Josh Wolff who put it in the back of the net with ease.
DC took a 1-0 lead in to halftime and they came out attacking in the 2nd half creating solid opportunities up front. In the 52nd minute once again it was Najar setting up the play this time playing a nice pass to the right side of the box where Josh Wolff than tucked a beautiful pass past the foot of the Seattle defender and past the reach of Keller where Davies was waiting to score. It was Davies league leading 6th goal of the season.
In the 71st minute Seattle cut the lead in half off a Penalty kick taken by Brad Evans. The Sounders had several chances to tie it up but Bill Hamid came up with some big saves to preserve the victory. DC United has little time to rest as they have to get right back to work and prepare for F.C. Dallas who comes to RFK Saturday night.
