Luis Silva scores twice as DC United produce a strong second-half display to beat Colorado Rapids 4-2.
DC United produced a rousing second-half display to beat Colorado Rapids 4-2 at the RFK Stadium this morning.
The capital club took an 12th-minute lead through Luis Silva, who chipped over goalkeeper Clint Irwin to give United an early advantage.
Pablo Mastroeni's side levelled matters on 52 minutes after Dillon Serna's long-range strike left Bill Hamid with no chance.
Being pegged back only served to frustrate the hosts, however, as DC put their Colorado counterparts to the sword in a fruitful 20-minute period.
First, Silva bagged his brace shortly after the hour mark, before Chris Rolfe established a degree of comfort by opening up two-goal gap on 81 minutes.
Fabian Espindola put the result beyond doubt soon after, before Deshorn Brown netted a mere consolation in what was the Rapids' fourth successive MLS defeat.
Result: Seattle edge past United >
