Spotlight: Chris Pontius
Tonight, D.C. United was victorious. The Black-and-Red beat the San Jose Earthquakes 1-0, courtesy of a Chris Pontius penalty shot after Chris Korb was taken down in the box. Pontius' first goal of the year snapped DCU's 13-game winless streak.
When asked about his performance on the night, Pontius said, “I felt like I actually got into a groove in this game. It’s one of the first games this year where I felt like I got into a rhythm and felt like my old self again.”
Join United on Wednesday at the Maryland SoccerPlex as the team faces the New England Revolution in the quarterfinals of the U.S. Open Cup.
