MLS Regular Season
New England Revolution head coach Jay Heaps
On the game plan after going down to nine men:
D.C. United pleased with road point, despite failing to fully capitalize on two-man advantage in New England
Heading into their match-up with the New England Revolution on Saturday evening, Ben Olsen’s banged-up D.C. United side likely would’ve been content with a draw. Facing a Revs side that hadn’t lost at home in nearly a year and preparing to travel cross-country for a midweek match-up against Portland, a road point likely would’ve satisfied United, for the time being keeping them atop the Eastern Conference.
WASHINGTON—Markus Halsti and Miguel Aguilar come from very different backgrounds, but on Sunday night in Chester, P.A., both midfielders reached an important milestone: starting a game in MLS.
Washington, D.C. (May 17, 2015) – D.C. United’s (6-2-3, 21 points) eight game unbeaten streak was snapped Sunday night with a 1-0 defeat against the Philadelphia Union. Despite the loss, the Black-and-Red remains in first place in the Eastern Conference. The Union’s Zach Pfeffer scored the games only goal in the 93rd minute on a Fabinho assist. United returns to action on the road on Saturday, May 23, at the New England Revolution.
