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



(Saturday, May 26, 2012)

From The Sports Network

Final Score: D.C. United 3, New England 2

Washington, D.C. (Sports Network) - A goal from substitute Maicon Santos just after the hour mark lifted D.C. United to a 3-2 win over the New England Revolution at RFK Stadium on Saturday.

The victory is United's fourth in five games and it takes the team to the top of the Eastern Conference standings, one point clear of Red Bull New York.

The home side got off to a great start with Brandon McDonald putting them ahead after 15 minutes before Dejan Jakovic doubled the advantage just before halftime.

But New England responded with two goals in the opening five minutes of the second half as Saer Sene and A.J. Soares scored three minutes apart to level the contest.

However, United restored its lead in the 61st with Santos slotting home the winning goal before goalkeeper Bill Hamid produced his best save of the match in the 90th minute deny the Revs the equalizer.

A Branko Boskovic free kick set up the opener as he served the ball into the area, where McDonald expertly redirected it past goalkeeper Matt Reis from 12 yards with a header.

Sene nearly equalized for the Revs in the 38th when his shot went through the legs of Hamid but off the outside of the net, only for Jakovic to score on a scramble in front of the New England goal.

The Revs came out strong after the break with Benny Feilhaber's long-range shot being parried into the path of Sene, who scored on the rebound with a first-time shot.

Soares made it 2-2 a few minutes later when he headed home Chris Tierney's corner kick.

Santos came off the bench in the 57th minute and scored the winner four minutes later after playing a one-two with Dwayne De Rosario and slotting the ball home inside the right post.

Reis kept New England within a goal when he stopped Andy Najar at close range, but Hamid came up with the stop that preserved the win in the 90th minute when he tipped Kelyn Rowe's header over the crossbar.
