As D.C. United prepare this week for their final game of the 2013 season, things just wouldn’t coincide the year’s ongoing trend if there wasn’t some shuffling along the back line.

D.C. United may be in its final week of the season, but the squad is still training at a high level in preparation for Sunday's game against the Houston Dynamo. Yesterday, United began its session with simple passing drills and quickly transitioned into a team possession exercise.
After warming up in the crisp temperatures, the Black-and-Red ran a transition drill that created both 3 v 2 and 2 v 1 situations. After the three attackers took on the pair of defenders, the defenders countered against a lone player at the other end of the pitch.

Bobby Boswell spent three seasons with D.C. United from 2005-2007 after the Black-and-Red signed him as a discovery player. Boswell made 80 appearances (78 starts), scored four goals and notched four assists for the club.

In last week's VW Keys to the Match, Assistant Coach Josh Wolff said we needed to continue to get into dangerous places on the field, and we did. We had six attempts on goal, with two of those coming from inside the box. With most of our goals coming from long-range strikes in 2013, we took four of our six attempts on Friday night from outside the 18.
