D.C. United vs. Colorado Rapids: United Lead 1-0 Over The Visiting Rapids At The Half

In what has been a dominating performance in the first half, United lead 1-0 over the visitors. This is completely unofficial, but it feels like United have had at least 80% of the possession so far. United have done a good job limiting the Rapids attacks, and have countered extremely well as they took the lead off a counter.

Dwayne De Rosario got United on the score sheet in the 25th minute, after he took a Lewis Neal through ball and beat Matt Pickens for the opening goal. United continued to press the rest of the half and really put a lot of pressure on the Rapids back four.

United nearly got a second goal just a few minutes later, as Pickens stepped up and made three fantastic saves in a row. After a De Rosario shot from distance was cleared, Pickens stopped two headers off corners to keep United at one. United had another flurry of chances in the closing minutes of the half, and it would not be surprising to see them add another in the second half.
