Wolff helps rescue a point

On a night away from home where very few things went right for D.C. United, coming away with a point was a minor victory against the Chicago Fire.

Former Fire stalwart Josh Wolff got one back on his former team, scoring in the 73rd minute to snatch a 1-1 draw in a game that saw DC outplayed for significant stretches of the match.

WASHINGTON — D.C. United defender Dejan Jakovic was able to make the most out of an unfortunate situation this summer.

The Canadian international suffered a hamstring injury back on June 1 that ended up keeping him out until the end of July. But instead of lamenting the setback, the 26-year-old hit the weight room to bulk up what he could work on — his upper body.

The hard work particularly paid off against the Vancouver Whitecaps last weekend, as Jakovic and the rest of DC’s defense kept giant striker Eric Hassli off the score sheet in a 4-0 win for DC.

WASHINGTON — Two games in four days always provides a challenge, particularly, when they’re on the road.

But unlike most MLS sides, D.C. United actually seem to enjoy packing their bags and printing their boarding passes. This week, United will put their 4-3-3 road mark — the only winning away record in the Eastern Conference — on the line when they travel to face the Chicago Fire on Thursday (9 pm ET, ESPN2) and Sporting Kansas City on Sunday.
