Recap: D.C. 0 - TFC 1

It was foggy and humid, but that didn’t slow anyone down. It started off a million miles per hour, as expected in the first game since the boots were hung up last October for both D.C. United and Toronto FC. Black-and-Red saw the better of the first ten minutes, with Nick DeLeon showing his skill and explosiveness, giving both Manny Aparicio and Chris Mannella a handful to deal with right out of the gate.
