It took Jesse Marsch half an hour to make an impression at sweeper.
A bad one.
Marsch was comprehensively beaten by Marcelo Gallardo just outside the top of the box, who put D.C. one up with a sweet move and shot.
Jaime Moreno almost added to his MLS goal total in first half stoppage time, sending a shot skimming over the bar that looked to have been redirected by Brad Guzan.
And that was largely it for on-field highlights.
Chivas USA finished the half without a shot on target; D.C. had a half dozen total, Chivas USA just one.
Razov had a goal disallowed for offside, by the way.
On a side note, Chivas USA has apparently found one way to fill the stands: invite really big high school bands to the game.
Legion 1908 is boycotting their second consecutive home game tonight.
