D.C. United thumped Harbour View of Jamaica by a 5-0 score on Tuesday and advanced to the CONCACAF Champions Cup semifinal by virtue of a 6-1 aggregate score. D.C. will await the winner of the Pachuca-Motagua series, which is even at 0-0 entering Wednesday's second leg.
A former Galaxy player had a hand in the rout. Santino Quaranta assisted on one of the later goals. Quaranta came on as a second-half substitute.
I think the Galaxy made some questionable moves over the last 12-18 months or so but getting rid of Quaranta was definitely not one of them. He has talent still and he did do some good things for the Galaxy but he was not going to find success out here. If he regains his form and does well, it's probably because he needed the change of scenery.
It's too bad it couldn't have worked out. Quaranta could have helped this midfield out, but his upside here was minimal at best.
