Undermanned United wins in Copa Sudamericana

WASHINGTON -- Ben Olsen and Clyde Simms each scored to give D.C. United a 2-1 victory over CD Guadalajara in the first leg of their round of 16 series in the Copa Sudamericana on Wednesday night.

Simms scored the game-winner for United, which played a man down after Marc Burch received his second yellow card in the 44th minute. Simms gathered the rebound off Guadalajara's defensive wall after Christian Gomez's direct kick and sent a low ball to the left side of the goal, putting United ahead 2-0 in the 55th minute.

Sergio Santana responded for Guadalajara, collecting a cross from Xavier Ivan Baez and sliding across the box for his shot that beat Troy Perkins in the 61st minute.

D.C. took a 1-0 lead in the 23rd minute as Olsen collected a missed cross to Jaime Moreno and scored from the right side.

The two-game, aggregate-goals series will end Tuesday in Guadalajara. The winner will face Arsenal of Argentina next month in the quarterfinals of the tournament, the second-most prestigious championship for South American clubs. It has included teams from Central and North America since 2005.
