D.C. United was on its way to getting shut out, again, at Red Bull Arena to the New York Red Bulls. Since a goal from Nick DeLeon in the 36th minute of an August 31, 2013 game in New Jersey, D.C. hadn't scored since. 593 minutes over 5 and a half matches, until Steven Birnbaum's 89th minute one snapped the streak, and Lamar Neagle's stoppage-time tying effort gave D.C. a 2-2 draw with the Metros, their first points there since a scoreless draw in March 2013. Crazy, crazy times.
So let's get to the voting form. As always, the scale is:
1 - Not a pro (MLS/NASL/USL) quality performance
4 - Average USL starter
6 - Average MLS starter
9 - MLS All-Star
10 - MLS MVP-quality performance
And if one was inordinately better/worse than the other, feel free to make the case in the comments:
