WASHINGTON – When D.C. United take the field against the Colorado Rapids Saturday evening (7:30 pm ET, Comcast SportsNet), it’s a huge opportunity for a young, rebuilding club to take another step forward.
Last week, the team picked up four points in two home games, and a win against the defending champions would be another positive step.
