Result: Luis Silva double downs Colorado Rapids

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.
