Black-And-Red Try To Return To Winning Ways
After losing a tough match against the Western Conference leading San Jose Earthquakes (7-1-1, 22 points) on Wednesday, the United are looking to turn things around and get back on the winning track with their defense.
On Wednesday, United had little trouble creating chances against a formidable San Jose defense. The problems arose though, when the Earthquakes were on the attack, as D.C. allowed a crippling five goals. With three injuries at center back, Ben Olsen was forced to drop Perry Kitchen - a defensive midfielder - back into defense, a move that did not pan out over 90 minutes.
