The best teams know how to win. Sometimes those teams aren’t the best that day, but still pull out the W; that is the lesson assistant coach Chad Ashton hopes D.C. United has learned from last night’s tie.

“We had a chance to finish the game off with a chance or two, we don’t put it away, and end up making a mistake or two at the back and giving away the equalizer,” Ashton recalled. “That’s a bit of a bummer. If here is where we have to learn that lesson and figure out how to see out a game, then now is the time.”

Highlights: D.C. United 1 - Charleston Battery 1 - February 26, 2014

A draw enough to earn a chance at the Cup, D.C. to meet Seattle this Sat. in Championship match
Highlights: D.C. 1 - Battery 1

MLS veteran and Davy Arnaud came in strong in the second half versus Charleston. The midfielder, an expected leader for the Black-and-Red, notched one goal and set up an additional couple of dangerous plays. On a cold and rainy night in Charleston a small mistake led to a draw, but a 1-1 record in the Carolina Challenge Cup is enough for a chance at the Championship.
