Chris Pontius’ 82nd-minute strike gives United 2-1 win over Revolution
Question of the Day
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Chris Pontius curled a shot off the left wing into the far right corner in the 82nd minute, his first goal of the season, as the D.C. United beat the New England Revolution 2-1 Saturday.
New England had a six-match (5-0-1) unbeaten streak against D.C. United snapped. D.C. United is unbeaten in four matches (2-0-2), during which it has allowed two goals.
New England took the lead in the sixth minute on Jose Moreno’s first goal for the Revolution in his two games with them. United answered in the 19th minute when Maicon Santos finished one of D.C.’s eight first half corners.
Moreno, a 30-year old Colombian, scored on a right-footed volley from Saer Sene on the left wing, sending the ball into the left corner of the net past D.C. United goalkeeper Joe Willis.
Santos scored his third goal of the season for D.C. United 13 minutes later. After Nick DeLeon’s corner kick from the right wing, Dwayne DeRosario bicyle-kicked the ball from the far left corner atop the penalty box to the goalmouth where Santos headed the ball past New England goalie Matt Reis.
Reis made a superb diving save on Danny Cruz in the 12th minute, while New England midfielder Lee Nguyen knocked a loose ball off the goal line on a shot by Robbie Russell in the 22nd minute.
New England had two other superb scoring chances — Chris Tierney’s direct kick from the right side at 28 glanced off the left goal post, while Nguyen had glancing shot just miss the right post at 40.
