Jared Jeffrey put D.C. United up 1-0 over Toronto FC last weekend with a perfectly-placed, long-range curler. The MLS rookie calmly cut the ball onto his left foot, looked up, and put the ball away. Even though United couldn't hold onto the lead, Jeffrey won MLS Goal of the Week for his strike. Congratulations Jared!

We wanted the Cup.
Chris Pontius has been through a lot - injuries, near Open Cup victories and tough seasons. Tonight, he, along with his D.C. United teammates, lifted that coveted trophy over their heads; they are victorious. And we were there to watch the many emotions Pontius went through as he watched his team claim the Cup for the final 9 minutes of the match. One thing is clear, this team means everything to CP13!
