D.C. United may have won the battle today, but they lost the war against their most bitter rivals in New York Red Bull. D.C.’s 2-1 win this afternoon was not enough to overturn a two-goal deficit from their encounter last weekend at Red Bull Arena and the Red Bulls advance to the Eastern Conference final […]
During the dog days of the season, the major question for the Black and Red heading into playoff time was the striker position. Would it be an in-form Luis Silva, or the designated player Eddie Johnson starting alongside Fabian Espindola? Due to an ill-timed injury in Houston, it is Eddie Johnson that will lead the line on Sunday next to Fabi. Photo: Martin Fernandez.
Bill Hamid’s last-second reflex save on Daniel Lovitz’ angled shot helped preserve a huge 2-1 win for D.C. United over Toronto FC tonight in Toronto, Ontario.

Luis Silva’s first-half hat trick pushed D.C. United to a 4-2 victory over the Montreal Impact at soggy Stade De Saputo tonight in Montreal, Canada.

D.C. United was five minutes of stoppage time away from a rare three-game winning streak and tying the Columbus Crew atop the Eastern Conference standings.

D.C. United opened up their preseason account with a 1-0 loss to Toronto FC in strangely foggy conditions tonight in Bradenton, Florida. United was missing more than a few regulars and head coach Ben Olsen put out two separate units to begin each half. Predictably the more experienced side which started the match gave United […]
For 89 minutes, it appeared as though a sublime first-half strike off the foot of D.C. United midfielder Nick DeLeon would hold up, as the home side were the aggressors all evening at RFK Stadium. Jack McInerney had other ideas. The Union’s leading scorer, who subbed on in the 73rd minute, nodded a Kleberson cross […]
