Benefiting from a deflection, Davy Arnaud puts one in from the outside to tie the Portland Timbers early in the first half.
D.C. United snared an early goal and they had the resolve to shut out the New York Red Bulls and earn a 1-0 win Saturday at R.F.K. Stadium.
A former MLS All-Star who compiled seven U.S. national team caps from 2007 to 2009, Arnaud is a player whose most productive days are likely behind him. But United coach Ben Olsen had more in mind when the club acquired Arnaud in a December trade with the Montreal Impact.
Arnaud, 33, was the Impact's captain the last two seasons. The Nederland, Texas, native scored five goals and tallied eight assists in 57 games with Montreal in 2012-13.
Sporting Kansas City captain Davy Arnaud will undergo sports hernia surgery next week and will miss up to six weeks.
"You try to be a good influence every day at training," Arnaud said. "For me, that's one of the most important things on a daily basis — that you approach things the right way, that the effort is there and you don't take any days off. I try and do that to the best of my ability."
"It's turned into going on 13 years now," Arnaud said. "I feel very fortunate. I love it — I couldn't see myself doing anything else."
