  DID YOU KNOW?
  • D.C. United’s Dwayne De Rosario needs two more goals to mark the 100th of his MLS career. De Ro would become just the seventh player in league history to reach the mark, and is currently second among active players, behind Landon Donovan, for most MLS goals all-time.
  • The Impact and United are meeting for the second time this season. Montreal’s Bernardo Corradi and D.C.’s Maicon Santos traded goals four minutes apart to leave the clubs in a 1-1 draw on April 18 at RFK Stadium.
  • Chris Pontius’s goal within the first 31 seconds of D.C. United’s 2-3 loss on Sunday against the New York Red Bulls was the fastest strike in United’s 17-season history.
  • On June 21, United Head Coach Ben Olsen was named the MLS All-Star head coach, making him the fourth D.C. United manager to be selected to lead the All-Star team and the youngest manager ever to take the helm of the All-Stars.
  • Local hero Patrice Bernier has become a vital part of the Montreal attack. In 11 games, the Brossard, Quebec native has scored three goals and created five assists.
