DC United have playoffs in their sights

DC United continues to show steady improvement over the second half of the 2011 regular season, Ben Olsen’s first in charge as head coach. Following the fantastic and necessary acquisitions of Dwayne De Rosario, to add quality to the attack, and Brandon McDonald, to add stability to the defense, they have gone 3-1-2 (W-L-T) in their last 6 games and moved into a position in the table that allows them to believe they can make a run in the playoffs, something the DC United fans have been craving since the disappointments of the last few seasons. Against Chivas USA on September 10th United put in arguably their best performance of the season. Winning 3-0, Dwayne De Rosario was involved in 2 goals while forward Chris Pontius contributed 3 assists. Charlie Davies was the benefactor of De Rosario and Pontius’s crafty work, scoring a hat trick to announce his return from a barren run of goals in recent games.

Next up for DC United is another game out West against the solid Seattle Sounders. They then return to RFK for 2 crucial home games, on Wednesday September 21st against Chivas USA and then on Saturday September 24th against 2009 MLS Cup Champions Real Salt Lake.
