WASHINGTON (AP) — Federico Higuain scored twice to help Columbus open the season with a 3-0 victory over D.C. United on Saturday night in Gregg Berhalter's first game as the Crew's coach.
In the lost season of 2013 all was not lost for D.C. United. Despite a three-win campaign in Major League Soccer, United was able to navigate its way to its third Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup trophy.
D.C. United made a move to bolster its midfield Tuesday with the acquisition of Seattle Sounders FC Alex Caskey. DCU gave up a third-round pick in the 2016 MLS SuperDraft for Caskey.
After enduring a 3-win season, D.C United brings in new faces to help spark a change for the team.
