Missed chances haunt United

WASHINGTON – In the wake of D.C. United’s 0-0 draw against FC Dallas Saturday night, there was a mixture of reactions as the team processed the result.

On the one hand, after conceding eight goals in a two game stretch earlier in the season, a very young defense picked up its second shutout of the year and neutralized FC Dallas’ attack all night.

But on the other hand, D.C. showed more offensive bite than Dallas, had a couple of chances to score, and at the end of the day, still dropped two points at home.

WASHINGTON – For the very first time in his MLS career, D.C. United midfielder Dax McCarty will line up against FC Dallas, his team for the first five years in the league.

Left unprotected in last fall’s Expansion Draft 24 hours after Dallas finished as runners-up in MLS Cup, McCarty eventually made his way to the nation’s capital via trade, after being picked by the Portland Timbers.

With many friends still on FC Dallas, it’ll be a unique experience for the 24-year-old getting to play against so many familiar faces.
