DC United 4 Colorado Rapids 2: Hosts end losing run

DC United returned to winning ways in MLS with a 4-2 victory over the Colorado Rapids on Sunday.

Ben Olsen’s men had failed to score in back-to-back defeats, but claimed a largely comfortable win at their Robert F Kennedy Memorial Stadium home.

The Eastern Conference’s second-placed team closed the gap on leaders Sporting Kansas City to two points with the win, set up by Luis Silva’s brace.

Silva made it 1-0 in the 12th minute after a sloppy turnover of possession in the middle of the park by the Rapids.

He cut inside a marker before neatly finishing into the top corner, giving Rapids goalkeeper Clinton Irwin no chance.

The Rapids would eventually equalise seven minutes into the second half, and in some style.

Dillon Serna got on the end of a headed clearance and lashed a stunning 35-yard volley over DC keeper Bill Hamid.

Fabian Espindola went close to matching Serna’s fine goal, but his delicate 20-yard chip from an angle bounced off the crossbar as United had to wait to go ahead again.

Silva restored his team’s lead in the 67th minute, finishing a neat team move.

Chris Rolfe made it 3-1 when he put away Taylor Kemp’s cutback in the 81st minute and Espindola added another with a powerful finish.

Deshorn Brown scored a consolation goal for the Rapids, who slumped to their fourth straight loss, with a close-range header in additional time.
