WASHINGTON, D.C. — Branko Boskovic had seen enough.
Last Saturday, his D.C. United side had just lost its 20th league match of the season — its 12th defeat overall since his midsummer arrival and by virtue of their fourth blown lead during the same period.
While most of the attention, understandably, was paid to teammate Jaime Moreno and his United swan song, Boskovic sat at his locker across the room, quietly and matter-of-factly dissecting the naivete that had burned DC yet again.
Sounders fans voted in force, once again, for MLSsoccer.com's AT&T Goal of the Week, ensuring a Seattle player took the honor for the fifth time in the past six weeks.
James Riley's first goal of the year wins this campaign's final Goal of the Week award, having collected 65.75 percent of the vote. He beat out efforts from Brian McBride (24.01 percent), Geoff Cameron (4.04 percent), Birahim Diop (3.31 percent) and Dane Richards (2.89 percent).

WASHINGTON – From field level to mezzanine and upper deck, tears were flowing in every sector of RFK Stadium as Jaime Moreno concluded his D.C. United career last weekend. The raw heartache surprised even the man at the center of the action.

A behind-the-scenes look at Jaime Moreno's last matchday experience. We follow him from his arrival at RFK stadium until his night wraps up at the launch party for his 99 Dreams Foundation.

With the playoffs finally looming, there's little change atop Mt. Power Rankings. The Rocky Mountain champs are still tops here too, despite nearly falling flat in Colorado. The Sounders and FC Dallas, meanwhile, took some lumps before the final whistle blew on the season, while New York drops in at No. 3.
