CCL Group B game #3: DCU 1 - Jabloteh 0

D.C. United battles to a 1-0 win over San Juan Jabloteh and earns its first-ever victory in CONCACAF Champions League play. Christian Gomez' 14th minute penalty kick was the difference. The win keeps United alive as it attempts to advance out of Group B and into the knockout stage. 

The team will return home late tomorrow night and will enjoy a rare weekend without a game before facing CD Marathon (Honduras) at RFK Stadium next Thursday in its fourth Champions League match.

Here's the remaining CONCACAF schedule:

  • Sept. 24 vs. CD Marathon
  • Sept. 30 vs. San Juan Jabloteh
  • Oct. 20 @ CD Toluca

Toluca - 2 GP - 2-0-0 - 6 points
