Then a trainer chimed in with her opinion, and the debate was on. There were that many to choose from.

D.C. United opened the scoring in the 19th minute when left back Marco Hurtado stepped forward, beat a man, and slipped a pass to Cody Albrecht at the top of the box. Albrecht made a slashing right-footed dribble between two players to break into the box alone, then finished low past goalkeeper Nick Straight to give United the lead.

Washington, D.C. (July 26, 2010) - Seeking redemption for a group stage loss at the 2010 U.S. Soccer Developmental Academy National Finals to Chicago, D.C. United’s U-16 side defeated the Fire 5-3 on penalties to open the 2010 SUM Cup in Houston on July 23. United avenged the defeat from two weeks ago, as forward Julian Griggs made his return from mononucleosis to put the Black-and-Red up 1-0. Chicago drew level before the half, but United goalkeeper Dakota Niedermeier ensured Black-and-Red victory by denying Chicago’s Daniel Lojeck an equalizing penalty.
