OFFICIAL United - e-Quakes POST Match Thread [R] It's halftime at RFK with DC United winning 1-0! Goal by Bobby Convey in the 38th minute on assists by Moreno and Nelsen. Real pretty too. Convey is now at the dreaded three goal mark for the season so we can't expect anything more out of him. Here's a recap of how the goal happened: 1) Lagos, playing right wing this game is obviously under orders by Yallop to push forward as much as possible in part to take advantage of ITT at left back. Hudson is trying to counter that by shading Nellie over to the left for cover. This almost backfired for united around minute 20 when LD was sprung wide open on the right with only a very nervous Kiwi between him and Rimando. On that play, Nellie slowed LD down enough- barely- for Etcheverry (!) to help out on defense. Most anyone other than a diehard DC homer would say that besides getting the ball, El Diablo got much of LD's leg in the box, but there was no call. 2) Anyways back to the actual score. Lagos is going in on Kiwi who realizes he's not dealing with a guy who has LD's skills and strips Manny of the ball and heads upfield with loads of space. 3) Past the midfield strip, Nellie sees Quakes players and passes forward to Moreno who quickly goes back in time to 98 and steams ahead onm a slight diagional at goal, surrounded by four- count 'em- four Quakes. several minutes earlier it seemed that Plate O' Food was getting some scattered boos from the crowd but not this time. This time he's a dribbling machine. ibsen, Eklund, Mulrooney, Conrad all don't stop him. 4) Moreno goes on for 30 yards or so. Near the 18 yard line, some more Quakes defenders try to help (six total now) but Moreno deftly passes the ball to Convey who's at the 18 in the center of the field. 5) At this point, Convey has two choices: give and go with Moreno or go for goal. Convey receives the pass from Jaime with his right foot facing Moreno while looking directly at the left touchline. The right foot passes cleanly to his left foot and he shoots at the right post where it tucks in nicely for the score. Convey makes the right decision and is rewarded for his effort as a sprawling Jeff Agoos arrives about five minutes too late to stop Bobby.
