Toronto victory proves D.C. are no road pushovers

BMO win helps Olsen's Army chart new course away from RFK Stadium
DC turn new leaf at BMO

Just five games into the 2011 season and D.C. United have already
scored more than half as many goals as they did away from home last year.

It’s a tribute to D.C.’s new approach to road matches in their
first full season under manager Ben Olsen. Two goals in the first 10 minutes
from Chris Pontius and Charlie Davies gave United its first road win of the
year, on a field that has traditionally proven to be unwelcoming to visitors – Toronto
FC’s BMO Field.

TORONTO - Jugando la mayor parte del segundo tiempo con un hombre menos, Toronto FC cedió tres importantes puntos de local, al ser derrotado por 3-0 DC United, en un partido en el que el plantel escarlata nunca se encontró en la cancha.

Todavía no habían comenzado a calentar motores cuando Chris Pontius sorprendió a la defensa, específicamente al debutante en esa posición Jacob Peterson, y con un tiro cruzado venció a Stefan Frei para abrir el marcador al minuto 5.
