Ten Years On, Moreno Still Leading D.C. United Past N.Y.
Washington Post, September 25th, 2006 3:48PM

MOST COMMENTED

Jaime Moreno came off the bench to lead D.C. United past New York's Red Bulls in a game that sounded a lot closer than it actually was. The game tied, 1-1, after halftime, Moreno came off the bench and within three minutes set up Christian Gomez for United's second. Then, just after United went down to 10 men after Facundo Erpen was sent off, Moreno made it 3-1. Amado Guevara cut the deficit to 3-2 with about eight minutes remaining, before Matias Donet put the game beyond the Red Bulls with a fantastic fourth goal, to which Moreno was credited with an assist. The Bulls were then able to pull one more back in stoppage time, but the game was already beyond them. D.C. powered home a 4-3 home victory on a night when its 1996 MLS Championship team, which Moreno was a part of, was being honored. "Next week I will give them all three days off so they will all be playing like Jaime," Coach Peter Nowak said, grinning. Moreno had been rested for several days prior to Saturday's game and did not start. The Bolivian striker admitted that he had not been at his best for several weeks, which he says is one of the reasons for United's 1-3-5 rut. Nevertheless, D.C. is still the league's best team, but Nowak remained cautious after an up-and-down performance. "You cannot play such a wonderful game and give so many gifts to the other team," he said. "We score beautiful goals, we fight for 90 minutes, but the gifts and another red card, it's unacceptable. We can not have this kind of mentality at the end of the season." Read the original story...
