There are mixed emotions on East Capitol Street. DC United is still in first place in Major League Soccer’s Eastern Conference.
For DC United, it’s an opportunity to be greedy. United is undefeated in six games and on 17 points is off to its best start after eight games in club history.
Regardless of record or table position, the rivalry between DC United and the New York Red Bulls is an appetizing entrée by itself.
The fortress is still intact.
