D.C. United has only played eight matches of the MLS regular season, but they have already had to deal with a season’s worth of injuries. The injuries are not an excuse for the record, but they surely haven’t helped. The team has suffered a variety of injuries as you learned last week on More recently, Santino Quaranta suffered another medical setback as he contracted a staph infection. Santino’s infection was not very widely publicized, even though it was a week-long ordeal from the time he first noticed a problem until the point when it was all taken care of.

The Colorado Rapids broke a decade-long habit of failure at
RFK Stadium with Saturday night’s 1-0 win over D.C. United, but the result was
business as usual—in all the worst ways—for the home side.

The letdowns, late goals and losses keep stacking up for
United, and while the disappointment of the season’s seventh setback is acute
enough in its own right, the continuation of a recurring pattern makes this
latest defeat all the more maddening for Curt Onalfo and his men.

WASHINGTON, D.C.- Los jugadores del D.C. United no pudieron ocultar la frustración que los embarga en este primer cuarto de la temporada después de que el Colorado Rapids les propinara su séptima derrota de la temporada con un gol de Mehdi Ballouchi al minuto 67’ que terminó con una racha de 11 años del club visitante sin poder ganar en el RFK.

The Colorado Rapids went to RFK Stadium on Saturday night and edged D.C. United, 1-0, erasing an 11-year winless streak in the Nation's Capital.

The difference this year is that there was a certain amount of expectation they would do just that—and not because D.C. is hardly at the top of their game.

Forward Adam Cristman

On United’s inability to finish:
“I don’t know if it is a matter of clicking or continuing to work on crossing and finishing, or maybe we all need to have a meeting to clearly define every detail of everyone’s role. Everyone has to understand everyone else’s role because our timing is just not there. If I know that a ball is coming first time I know I need to time my run immediately, if a ball is coming from the wing I time my run differently. Right now we are all over the place, and it is frustrating because we are so close.”

Sobre el partido:
“Pensé que fue un gran juego, que era un juego muy reñido; hubo una falta cuestionable que llegó cerca de la portería, y nos ponen contra la pared. Así que ahora estamos persiguiendo el juego, lo que lo hace difícil para nosotros. Ellos hicieron un buen trabajo en la gestión del juego, pero para mí en general fue un partido muy parejo”.
