Hours before D.C. United’s Charlie Davies whipped the RFK Stadium crowd into a frenzy with his late game heroics, eight of the area’s premier amateur squads battled it out on the second day of group stage play in La Super Copa VI, the annual tournament of champions presented by Volkswagen.

D.C. United has enough quality attacking players to be one of the highest scoring teams in MLS. The more worrying aspect of United’s offense is that they may not be able to provide the service needed to let the goal scorers do their job. In his post-game press conference on Saturday, Ben Olsen expressed that he was pleased with his team’s energy, but not their sharpness - specifically in the attacking third. He used the word ‘sharpness’ to describe what was lacking from the attack, but it seemed like he meant something slightly different – creativity.

WASHINGTON- El delantero Charlie Davies, quien con su cuarto gol de la temporada dio al D.C. United el empate frente al Galaxy de Los Ángeles 1-1, aseguró que ya está listo para jugar a tiempo completo y cumplir su misión de ayudar a este equipo a ser contendor en esta temporada.

“Vine a este equipo a jugar y estoy listo para hacerlo, no 90 sino 95 minutos. Quizás en los primeros encuentros todavía no estaba completamente al 100 por ciento ni física ni emocionalmente pero ahora sí”, dijo Davies en el vestuario del DC.

WASHINGTON – With the minutes slipping away, ten-men D.C. United looked consigned to defeat against the LA Galaxy.

Enter Charlie Davies to the rescue.

Coming into the game as a 53rd-minute sub for Blake Brettschneider, Davies was relatively quiet through most of his shift. But in the 89th minute, the forward found some breathing room—and the ball. Running at Galaxy defender Omar Gonzalez, Davies drew contact and went down in the box.

WASHINGTON- Charlie Davies marcó su cuarto gol de la temporada y el D.C. United empató dramáticamente al minuto 88 con Los Angeles Galaxy 1-1, en un encuentro no apto para cardíacos protagonizado en el RFK por dos de los rivales más aguerridos en la historia de la Liga.

Davies entró al minuto 53 en sustitución de Blake Brettschneider y volvió a responder a la confianza de su técnico Ben Olsen al revitalizar la ofensiva de su equipo y salvarlo de una derrota con su curto gol de la campaña 2011 y tercer de tiro penal.
