United da la sorpresa ante Rapids

Ganó 1-0, su primera victoria en más de una década en Colorado
DC da la sorpresa

Si hay algo bueno que tiene la MLS,
es la paridad de la liga, el hecho de que cualquier equipo le puede ganar a
cualquiera en un momento determinado, sin importar lo que diga la tabla de posiciones.

Esto volvió a quedar demostrado la
noche del sábado en el Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, donde el colista D.C. United
venció a domicilio por 1-0 a los Rapids, discutiblemente el mejor equipo del
momento y, salvo una debacle de proporciones épicas, uno de los ocho
clasificados a la Liguilla.

WASHINGTON — In a league marked by persistent parity, the history between D.C. United and the Colorado Rapids has played out with a reassuring sort of predictability, guided by one dominant rule: the home side hardly ever loses.

Perhaps there are advantages provided by altitude on one side and summer humidity on the other, or maybe it’s mere happenstance. But United have not won in Colorado in more than a decade, while the Rapids can claim just three wins all-time in the nation’s capital.

We have reached the cream of the crop in the rankings of the 24 Under 24 – the top 24 players under the age of 24. Today's five names include a 2010 Rookie of the Year candidate, two Chicago Fire players, Braunaldinho and the lowest SuperDraft pick in the entire list.

With a career high nine goals in 2010, the stock of "Braunaldinho" Justin Braun (No. 10) has risen considerably this year.

D.C. United interim head coach Ben Olsen has been fined an additional $750 for his comments to an official following his ejection in the closing moments of his team’s 3-1 loss to the Houston Dynamo on Saturday.

The added amount brings Olsen's total to $1,250, as he received an automatic $500 fine and one-game suspension for being sent off.

Both Olsen and Houston head coach Dominic Kinnear were sent to the locker rooms after stepping out of the technical area to shake hands following a hard foul from DC’s Julius James on the Dynamo’s Dominic Oduro.
