Following U23s played in the first playoff leg between Chicago and DC United: DaMarcus Beasley, Bobby Convey, Doug Warren, Santino Quaranta, Justin Mapp and Nate Jaqua. I thought Doug Warren had an excellent game in net for DC United despite the 2-0 loss. Made crucial big saves on Razov, Marsch, Beasley and Williams and made numerous charges out of the box to halt dangerous plays, including one sure goal. Justin Mapp came on as a 2nd half sub and absolutely sparkled from the right wing. Absolutely electric and I can't fathom how he wound up without a goal (just missed) or an assist (Warren made a great play after one of Mapp's several runs). Running with the ball is already a major threat. Santino Quaranta on the other hand was less stellar and was showing much rust. At the moment I don't think you could play Quaranta over Mapp on the right wing. Bobby Convey, mixed results from Convey and I thought he had a much better first half than second. Made a few great passes in the 1st half for DC's best chances. Was less influential in the second. Give him an Excellent grade in the first half. A fair grade in the second. DaMarcus Beasley did not have a great game, but he did dazzle on the ball at times. Nearly scored but Warren came out and made a great save to deny him. He's really starting to amaze on the dribble. Needs to see more of the ball which is partially his own fault and partially the fault of his central midfielders. Nate Jaqua came on pretty late for Damani Ralph and played a rather classic target forward game, holding up the ball to try and keep possession and waste time. Was about to tap home on a square ball from Mapp, before Warren made a sprawling stop to break up the chance. Then in 2nd half stoppage time rose up high and did the McBride-esque knock on to Ante Razov for the Fire's second goal.
