Saturday night at RFK Stadium, D.C. United rewarded the fans in attendance with a strong 4-0 win, DCU's first win at home since May 4th. United won a MLS game 4-0 for the first time since September 1, 2007, a game in which now-DCU coach Ben Olsen scored two goals.
Joe Willis was impressive in goal, in place of starter Bill Hamid, notching six saves and obviously keeping Vancouver off the scoreboard. Willis had a particularly nice sequence early in the game that was quickly followed by Chris Pontius' goal, getting United rolling early. Dwayne De Rosario kept up his stellar play since joining DCU, notching two assists. In seven matches since joining the club, De Rosario has six goals, three assists, and most importantly, United is 3-1-3 in those contests.
