Well that wasn’t a good way to end the preseason. The Union defense was atrocious in their final tune up, a 3-2 loss to D.C. United. Poor officiating cost D.C. United two more goals making the result closer than it should have been. Substitutes Derrick Jones and Marcus Epps showed well in the second half, the latter scoring on a nice strike outside the box to cut the lead in half. The defense has a lot of work to do before their first match of the season in Vancouver.
