WASHINGTON — The mere mention of the phrase “torn ACL” can leave professional players feeling squeamish. One of the most dreaded injuries in sports, a damaged anterior cruciate knee ligament usually means painful surgery, grueling rehabilitation and serious career disruption, to say the least.

That has all become far too familiar to Brandon Barklage, the midfielder who showed real promise in his first two seasons with D.C. United only to have both campaigns cut short by ACL tears.

WASHINGTON - Chris Wondolowski has done it all for the San Jose Earthquakes this season, and on Saturday night — thanks to a victory on the road against D.C. United and the Sounders' defeat of the Kansas City Wizards — he led the Earthquakes into the playoffs for the first time since the franchise restarted in 2008.

Wondolowski scored both goals for the Earthquakes in their 2-0 playoff-clinching victory over the United. Although not a constant threat throughout the match, Wondolowski scored in trademarks style.

WASHINGTON — Saturday’s 2-0 home loss to San Jose marked the 19th setback of the 2010 season for D.C. United, and while many of those defeats bear the same hallmarks, there also seem to be no end to the strange circumstances that arise to trip up the Black-and-Red.

Quotes: DC vs San Jose




On Jaime Moreno’s red card:
It’s disappointing. Very disappointing I’m disappointed for him. I’ve heard of what happened, I’ve heard it wasn’t much. And it changed the course of the game. And at that point, you know, it becomes kind of a different type of game. You know, it’s not really fun from that point on. You know, the first half was good, the second half wasn’t.
