While D.C. United’s performance may not have been their best shift on the road to date, there were still some positives to take from Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Real Salt Lake.
A young defense responded after a lackluster performance the weekend before, conceding four goals on home turf to San Jose, with RSL only scoring on a first half penalty kick. Chris Pontius was lively again on the left wing, threatening the opposing defense with storming runs, only denied a goal by and offside flag and striking the woodwork on two separate occasions.
Enduring a frustrating evening in a tough away venue, not much had gone D.C. United’s way for most of their 1-1 draw against Real Salt Lake on Saturday.
Chris Pontius had a goal correctly called back because Josh Wolff was offside when he flicked it to the midfielder in the first half. RSL won a PK in the 38th minute when a cross glanced off Clyde Simms’ trailing arm in the penalty area, and Pontius went on to hit the bar on two separate occasions.
SANDY, UTAH. -- El Real Salt Lake y D.C. United empataron 1-1 con goles de penalti en partido disputado en el estadio Río Tinto con una agradable noche de final de primavera ante tres cuartos de entrada (16,841).
Dos penaltis rigurosos transformados por Fabián Espíndola y Charlie Davies, en los finales de cada periodo, propiciaron un reparto de puntos. El resultado deja al Real en el quinto lugar de la Conferencia del Oeste con 22 puntos. El United llegó a 17 y se ubica en la misma posición en la Conferencia del Este.
D.C. UNITED HEAD COACH BEN OLSEN
Thoughts on the match:
“I thought that on the day [Real Salt Lake] were probably a better soccer team than we were, but we found a way. It’s a tough place to come and sneak out a result.”
On the game’s two goals being scored via penalties:
“We hit two posts, but we couldn’t get it that way so I guess we went the penalty route to get the tie. I think you can argue on both whether they were PK’s, but in the end they evened out.”
