Lineups: DC – Crayton, Martinez, McTavish, Namoff, Burch, Quaranta, Vide, Simms, Guerrero, Moreno and Emilio
NY- Conway, Leitch, Jimenez, Boyens, Goldwaithe, Pietravallo, Stammler, McGee, Stammler, Angel

1 – United steal the ball off a throw in, and Guerrero sends a ball through to Quaranta, too long and offside.  
2 – United give up a corner early, NY can’t make anything of it.
3 – Martinez makes a run and controls possession, eventually the ball gets to Moreno, but the centering pass was to no one.  
4 – Martinez with a hard tackle, lucky that wasn’t a Yellow.

6 – Cross into Emilio is headed over the bar.  
8 – NY earns another corner, snuffed out by DC.  
9 – Crayton way off his line, and dangerous play, but clears the ball.  Long run by Martinez up the right flank, finds Emilio who drops it for Moreno, shot saved and out for a corner.  
10 – Burch’s shot way too high.  Just hit a VW.  Hope he doesn’t have to pay for that.

68 – Both players get the ok to come back in.
70 – Marcelo Gallardo makes his return to the lineup coming in for Marc Burch.  United going with 3 in the back now I guess? Jorge Rojas coming in for Magee.

76 – Dyachenko in for Doe.  Kind of bizarre only bringing him on for half an hour?  I’m not the coach though. Looks like no Olsen tonight.  
78 – Bad clearance by Crayton, looked like he shanked that one.  First bad touch of the game, not a whole lot to complain about.  
79 – Moreno goes one-on-one and wins a corner.  Guerrero looking for Dyachenko with his cross.  On the impending corner, Conway comes out and nearly punches Quaranta in the face.  
80 – Quaranta gets too fancy and turns the ball over with a bad back-heel.  Moreno taken down in the box, Penalty Kick coming up.  Nice feed from Quaranta.

81 – Moreno misses the PK.  That’s two in a row he has no missed. 
82 – Gallardo tackled from behind but no call. 
85 – United offsides again, United are squandering their chances. 
86 – Richards blows his chance for a goal as his shot is not high enough to get past the defender.  Immediately after that, Angel beats Crayton, ball rolls along the goal mouth, but sneaks out for a goal kick.
89 – NY controlling the ball and a few seconds ago Crayton just had a fantastic save on a NY corner. 
90 – Game coming to a close, hard fought, not sure who they will give the Atlantic Cup too now. 
91 – May have spoken too soon, Quaranta nearly mad me look foolish with a shot from distance. 
92 – Uh-Oh.  Big no-no on Jimenez.  Takes Guerrero down a few yards outside of the box and earns himself a Yellow and gives United a chance to win the game in the last moments of the game. 
93 – Guerrero and Gallardo were over the ball, Gallardo puts it into the wall. 

Game Over.   Man of the Match is Crayton in goal.  Made some fantastic saves to keep the team even.
