MLS Game Summary - New England at D.C. United



(Saturday, April 5, 2014)

From The Sports Network

Final Score: D.C. United 2, New England 0

Washington, DC (SportsNetwork.com) - D.C. United claimed its first victory of the 2014 MLS season on Saturday with a 2-0 win over the New England Revolution at RFK Stadium.

An own goal from Jose Goncalves shortly before halftime handed United the lead, and newly-acquired midfielder Chris Rolfe capped the win with a goal in stoppage time.

The Revs have now lost three of their first five games this season, and have been held without a goal in four of those matches.

New England had a chance to open the scoring midway through the first half when a shot from Diego Fagundez was saved by the foot of United goalkeeper Andrew Dykstra, while Saer Sene fired the rebound into the outside of the net.

But with the first half winding down, a cross from Cristian Fernandez led to the first goal as Goncalves attempted to volley the ball clear of the penalty area, only for it to end up in the back of his own net.

Teal Bunbury went close on two occasions in the second half for the visitors as he curled a shot just over the crossbar in the 50th minute before narrowly missing the left post after taking a pass from Chris Tierney.

Fagundez also was set up by Tierney in the 73rd minute, but his acrobatic flick bounced inches past the post.

Rolfe was acquired in a trade this past week from Chicago, and he came on and sealed the win with a goal in stoppage time, snapping United's 15-game winless streak in league play.
