All you need is one chance.
Its a saying thats carved deeply into the book of global sports clichés, one barked out by coaches during pre-game pep talks and post-game press conferences. Its very rarely true.
Tonight, for the first time in Major League Soccer history, that cliché came to life.
Supporters Shield leaders D.C. United strode into Stade Saputo and topped the Montreal Impact 1-0, delivering the sort of gritty, character-filled performance thats quickly become their trademark this year. That fact, on its own, isnt particularly surprising. It was the way they did it, though, that was a bit strange. They only took one shot.
Not one shot on goal but one shot in total. Nobody in league history had ever done that; Kansas City actually managed to win a game without taking a single shot in 1997, but their victory came in a shootout.
