BOYDS, Md. – Two Kheli Dube goals on either side of the break paced the New England Revolution to a 3-2 win over D.C. United in a US Open Cup play-in match at the Maryland SoccerPlex on Tuesday evening.
The Revolution jumped out to a 3-0 lead and held on despite a second-half onslaught by DC, who trimmed the deficit thanks to two Branko Boskovic goals.
The match got off to a choppy start, but after things settled down a bit, the visitors struck gold in the 35th minute.
WASHINGTON – D.C. United are unsure of what type of opponent they'll face in Tuesday night’s US Open Cup play-in clash with the New England Revolution.
Scouting for such games is always tricky.
Different coaches prepare for play-in matches in different ways, so it’s hard to know whether the Revolution will send out a team of reserves or starters — or a mixture of the two.
“It’s a little different [than regular season games] in the sense that you can’t prepare too much,” head coach Ben Olsen said. “You can’t really cut up film because it’s a guessing game.”

WASHINGTON – After a slow and steady start to the 2011 season, it’s all hands on deck for D.C. United over the next two weeks.
Starting Tuesday with a US Open Cup play-in game against New England, DC have four games in 13 days, and will look to manage minutes to keep players healthy and get the maximum results possible.
Head Coach Ben Olsen stressed that closely managing time isn’t just being done because of the busy two-week schedule.
