WASHINGTON, D.C.- Nuevamente el D.C.
The Colorado Rapids finally killed off one of the longest-running streaks in MLS on Saturday night, ending their 11-year winless drought at RFK Stadium with a confident 1-0 victory over hapless D.C. United.
Mehdi Ballouchy’s 67th minute solo effort broke a 263-minute goalless streak for the Mile High Club and paved the way for a win that pushes cellar-dwelling United into even deeper misery.
After Adam Cristman opened his D.C. United scoring account with two goals in a U.S. Open Cup play-in match against Dallas two weeks ago, he rightly received additional congratulations on account of the fact that his first child, a baby girl named Caroline, had entered the world a few days prior.
The wry 25-year-old was quick to allocate the real credit for that achievement, however.
“Actually, my wife had her,” he deadpanned. “It was impressive.”
