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.

WASHINGTON — Although D.C. United are barely a third into the season, it’s already time for some revenge.
Saturday night’s meeting with the Colorado Rapids (7:30 pm ET, Direct Kick, MatchDay Live) offers a chance for DC to redeem themselves after what occurred back on April 3, when Ben Olsen’s squad traveled to Commerce City, Colo., and lost 4-1 against the defending MLS Cup champions.
