D.C. United vs. New England Revolution: Match Ratings From United's 3-2 Win Over The Revs

A look at how each D.C. United player performed in Saturday's match


D.C. United vs. New England Revolution: United Give Up Two Early Second-Half Goals, But Santos Saves The Day In 3-2 Win

United looked on their way to an easy win at the half, leading 2-0. However, and early barrage from the Revolution saw them tie things up just five minutes in to the second half and put a scare in a United team looking to sit atop the Eastern Conference.

After the rough start, United seemed to settle down and go back on the offensive after Maicon Santos enterted the game in the 57th minute for Branko Boskovic. Santos added the game winner on a nice give-and-go just four minutes after entering the game.

United were able to hang on for the full three points, but not without New England trying to equalize. Bill Hamid had to make, what could be the save of the season for United, a diving save in the 90th minute to preserve the win.

United now have three weeks off in the league and will sit atop the Eastern Conference heading in to their break. United sit on 27 points at 8-4-3. United will resume action in Philadelphia on June 16th.


D.C. United vs. New England Revolution: United Center Backs Igniting The Offense, Lead Revolution 2-0 At The Half

Not many would have placed a bet on Brandon McDonald and Dejan Jakovic being the scoring duo at the half. Yet here we are. McDonald scored a flick-on header off a free kick in the 15th minute. Dejan Jakovic scored off a corner right before the half in stoppage time.

United are looking for their third straight win, and a spot atop the Eastern Conference. A two-goal lead over a team that United have struggled with is big at the half. After getting off to a slow start, United maintained most of the possession throughout the half en route to the 2-0 lead.

That said, United did nearly give up a goal in the 38th minute after Saer Sene beat Daniel Woolard to a ball down the right side and beat United keeper Bill Hamid. However, Hamid did enough to deflect it out for a corner.

Branko Boskovic looks to be holding down a spot in the starting lineup after the assist on the free kick to McDonald and his service overall on corners. United will look to continue to shine off set pieces, and maybe add on through the run of play in the second half.
