NEW YORK – For all intents and purposes, it doesn’t get any bigger than this for Real Salt Lake. Or for MLS, for that matter.

The CONCACAF Champions League is the apex of professional soccer in our region, the ultimate goal for any club chasing its broader ambitions. And with MLS enjoying a period of growth and bristling confidence, it’s time for one of the league’s clubs to make a larger statement. For everyone’s sake.

One of the many reasons for optimism at the start of D.C. United’s 2011 season was the prospect of finally having a healthy Chris Pontius. Through five games, it’s been all systems go for the third-year product out of UC Santa Barbara.

After a solid start to his MLS career, the 2009 Rookie of the Year finalist suffered a hamstring injury early in 2010 that hampered him throughout the rest of that season. When playing he would deal with pain, and the injury eventually ended his season early in August. Pontius had surgery to repair it in September.

WASHINGTON – The urge to give back to the game that has given so much to D.C. United midfielder Santino Quaranta recently began to creep into his life, and he knew he had to do something about it.

The MLS veteran did just that, working with old friend, Baltimore native and former pro Sean Rush, who with Quaranta founded the Pipeline Soccer Club to help Baltimore-area kids make a connection to the sport that helped shape Quaranta’a life.

Just five games into the 2011 season and D.C. United have already
scored more than half as many goals as they did away from home last year.

It’s a tribute to D.C.’s new approach to road matches in their
first full season under manager Ben Olsen. Two goals in the first 10 minutes
from Chris Pontius and Charlie Davies gave United its first road win of the
year, on a field that has traditionally proven to be unwelcoming to visitors – Toronto
FC’s BMO Field.

TORONTO - Jugando la mayor parte del segundo tiempo con un hombre menos, Toronto FC cedió tres importantes puntos de local, al ser derrotado por 3-0 DC United, en un partido en el que el plantel escarlata nunca se encontró en la cancha.

Todavía no habían comenzado a calentar motores cuando Chris Pontius sorprendió a la defensa, específicamente al debutante en esa posición Jacob Peterson, y con un tiro cruzado venció a Stefan Frei para abrir el marcador al minuto 5.
