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.

Post-match quotes

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.”
