Last night, D.C. United ended its three game homestand with a 1-0 win over the New York Red Bulls. The Black-and-Red earned seven points through those three games, all against Eastern Conference teams. Though United didn’t put out the best on-field product against New York, the squad found a way to keep the visitors off the score sheet and winless through another match.
“It’s what we call a six-point game,” said Assistant Coach Chad Ashton. “For us to pick up three and New York not get anything, it’s a good way to move up the standings.”
