08/26/2011 - 11:30 AM UPDATE: D.C. United-Portland Timbers match postponed
WASHINGTON — When the D.C. United coaching staff gave Joe Willis the opportunity to make his first pro start against the Vancouver Whitecaps on Aug. 13, the risk paid unexpected dividends.
The third-round pick from this year’s SuperDraft has shown his mettle in two recent appearances after toiling as the club’s third goalkeeper most of the season, and the DC camp has certainly taken notice.
Joe Willis was named Lenkersdorfer Fine Jewelers Man of the Match for Matchday 24 of the MLS Regular Season today based on fan voting conducted on dcunited.com.
In Sunday's 1-0 loss to Sporting Kansas City, two names were surprisingly absent from the D.C. United starting lineup.
Charlie Davies didn’t make the 18 and Dwayne De Rosario was on the bench during Sunday night’s crucial matchup as head coach Olsen was looking to keep the pair fresh for the stretch run — although De Rosario came on at halftime and played 45 minutes.
The conclusion of D.C. United’s seven-game unbeaten streak couldn’t have come at a worse time.
It’s been almost four months since United lost a game on the road, a streak snapped with a flat performance in Sunday’s 1-0 loss against Sporting KC.
Grabbing points at Livestrong Sporting Park would have pushed DC up the ladder in the Eastern Conference, putting them in a tie for third and in possession of a playoff spot. But DC couldn’t deliver the needed performance to get a result.
