Reds continue to lose in uninteresting ways, DC United claims sole possession of first place in the Eastern Conference

I didn't watch the game tonight, and haven't checked any of the scores.  But I'm going to go out on a limb and say that our offense was unimpressive.  We've now lost three straight games to teams that had the fewest wins in their respective leagues before playing us.

Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game

Josh Wicks.  Commanded his box well, and came up huge in the second half, stopping a penalty kick from Brian McBride.

Other Notes

  • Jaime Moreno scored his MLS all-time career best 127th goal.
  • Christian Gomez enjoyed one of his best games of the season, notching his second goal of the year on a brilliant free kick.  He also hit the woodwork on a long range shot that would have put the game beyond dispute.
  • DC United remains unbeaten at RFK this year.  Its back line is gelling and holding on to leads that earlier in the season would have ended in draws.
  • A chippy game for Chicago, resulting in four yellow cards.
  • The previously unbeaten Chicago Fire have now lost their last three games.
