DC United knock the New York Red Bulls out of MLS Cup
New York Red Bulls 0 – DC United 1 (Agg. 1-2) (MLS Eastern Conference semifinals, November 8, 2012) The Red Bulls appeared poised to take the lead in the 69th when they were awarded a penalty in an incident that saw DC United keeper Bill Hamid get sent off, but Kenny Cooper was forced to take a retaken penalty and amazingly DC backup goalie Joe Willis made a crucial save on the second attempt. The Red Bulls had a man-advantage until the 75th when Red Bulls defender Rafa Marquez was ejected after receiving his second yellow card. The match then had a late twist as Nick DeLeon scored in the 88th minute to earn the visitors the win.
