MLS Review: DC United into play-off spot after dramatic win
Russell Canouse’s late goal lifted DC United to an important win over Dallas in MLS.
DC United moved into a play-off spot after a dramatic 1-0 win over Dallas in MLS on Saturday.
An 86th-minute winner from Russell Canouse lifted DC to a hard-fought win at Audi Field.
With the victory, Ben Olsen’s men moved into sixth spot in the Eastern Conference, sitting a point ahead of Montreal Impact.
Wayne Rooney, who missed an excellent early chance for DC, played a role in the winner.
The former England and Manchester United star drifted in a set-piece, which Canouse eventually headed in after initially hitting the crossbar with a volley.
Elsewhere, the Colorado Rapids ended a seven-game losing streak with a 2-0 win over Minnesota United, with both teams finishing the encounter with 10 men.
DC’s win meant New England’s play-off chances were ended, but the Revolution recorded a 2-0 victory against Orlando City.
