BOYDS — Survive and advance.
That was the scenario the D.C. United pro soccer team faced Tuesday against unfamiliar opponents, North Carolina FC, at the Maryland SoccerPlex.
Goalie David Ousted was one of the heroes in D.C. United’s 4-3 victory in penalty kicks over North Carolina FC as the Major League Soccer club moved a step closer to a championship.
Ousted held the line against North Carolina FC to help D.C. United advance in the 2018 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup after the teams played to a 1-1 draw in regulation.
“He’s a good goalie,” said D.C. United head coach Ben Olsen. “He knows what he’s doing back there.”
