The month of August will test D.C. United. Aiming to build on its four-game winning streak, the Black-and-Red faces a jam-packed schedule with seven games in 29 days.

“It’s always tough when you go into a stretch of a ton of games,” said Assistant Coach Chad Ashton. “But it will create opportunities for different players on our team, and hopefully everybody will continue to step up and help get us results.”

Two teams writing improbable comeback stories met at RFK stadium on Wednesday evening.

After a 2013 that saw them finish second-to-last in the Eastern Conference, perennial cellar-dwellars Toronto FC entered the match in playoff position.

D.C. United -- the only team that finished lower than TFC in the east last year -- took the pitch on Wednesday in the midst of an even more noteworthy change in form: the black-and-red have gone from worst to first.
