Abundance of attempts; Accuracy in passing; The Tradition
On Saturday, D.C. United held the New England Revolution to a 0-0 draw at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts. Below are a few key numbers from the day.
Seven different members of the Black-and-Red made a total of twelve attempts on New England's goal. United's attempts came from Ethan White, James Riley, Nick DeLeon, John Thorrington, Perry Kitchen, Kyle Porter, and Chris Pontius.
In the first half of play, defender Chris Korb completed 100% of his 29 passes. As a team, DCU made 387 passes with an accuracy rate of 79%.
D.C. United, in collaboration with DC Brau, has one beer named for the club. The Tradition, which was introduced to last week, was available on Saturday. The travelling supporters took growlers on the road to New England, while other fans visited the brewery mid-day on Saturday or watched D.C. United vs. New England at The Pug for their first taste.
