DC United 4-0 Vancouver Whitecaps

DC United began the game still seeking their first win of the season, having drawn three and lost two. They were up against the Vancouver Whitecaps, who'd already had two wins in their five games to this point. To win this game United would've to play much better than in their previous residence game, a three-0 loss to FC Dallas

United began brightly, with wave after wave of attacks

But the Whitecaps defense held firm, throwing themselves into each finish every tackle

When United did manage to crack through, the Whitecaps keeper, David Ousted, was on hand to tidy up.

As the first half went on, Vancouver started to discover their feet, pushing forward.

Although, aside from a rather spectacular diving rescue from Travis Worra, there wasn't a grand deal of danger.

Eventually United started breaking past the defense

... and in the thirty-ninth minute, Chris Rolfe took a shot through the legs of Tim Parker

which a diving Ousted got a hand to, to thrust away

... only to look Fabian Espindola slide in, and knock the ball into the net for the first goal of the game.

At the goal, Vancouver'south heads began to drop, and United continued to press forward, looking to prolong their advantage

When the second half began, it was that man again, Espindola, running the show, pushing United forward.

Scoring his, and United's, second goal in the fifty-fourth minute.

When Vancouver did manage to have a scarce foray into the DC half, it was generally snuffed out fairly quickly

In the final thirteen minutes, United brought on Luiano Acosta for Rolfe

who'd running tirelessly, and been caught in the face a few moments earlier

But it was the substitution of Alvaro Saborio for Espindola that tied a bow around the win, with his first goal coming in the eighty-eighth min from an Acosta through ball

... and his second coming 3 minutes later with Acosta once again recording the assist

... leaving Vancouver with their head in their hands, wondering where it'd all gone wrong
