Black And Red United: Marking On One Set Piece Was The Difference Between D.C. United And New England

It was a disappointing debut for Ben Olsen as D.C. United's interim coach, and as Black and Red United - SB Nation's D.C. United blog - notes, if it weren't for some poor marking on one set piece, nothing would have separated the two sides:

The only real difference between the two teams at the end of the night was lazy marking by Branko Boskovic on Chris Tierney's free kick assist to Pat Phelan. We're learning more about the Montenegran each week. He was clearly the organizer of United's attack tonight, but apparently he's not the greatest at being a focused defender when he needs to be.
