DC United once again gave up four goals in a losing effort, this time to Houston at Robertson Stadium on Friday night. Will Bruin had a hat trick for the Dynamo, opening the scoring in the 4th minute. DC leveled the score at 1-1 with Marc Burch's goal in the 39th, but it was and Bruin scoring again in the 41st and 57th. Cameron Weaver picked up Houston's fourth goal in the 62nd minute. DC also announced that Branko Boskovic tore his ACL against New England in the US Open Cup earlier in the week.
“On the first one I peeled out and opened up," Bruin said of his opening goal. "Geoff played me a great ball, and all I had to do was just finish it. On the second one, I saw Cam make the near-post run, Brad whipped it in, and I just headed in. On the third one, I just went up and got it.”
