Recap: DC 3, Portland 2

PORTLAND, OR – D.C. United punctured the Portland Timbers’ air of invincibility at JELD-WEN Field on Sunday, defeating the home side, 3-2.

Missing key offensive weapons Charlie Davies and Dax McCarty, both out with injuries, D.C. United became the first team in six to earn an MLS regular season victory in Portland.

It was a game that followed none of the familiar scripts at JELD-WEN Field — and it included four penalty kicks.

WASHINGTON – Charlie Davies and Josh Wolff tallied a goal apiece as D.C. United put and end to the Seattle Sounders’ six-game unbeaten streak at RFK Stadium on Wednesday evening, winning 2-1 and snapping their own two-game losing spell.

Seattle looked to take advantage of a D.C. side fielding four starters 20 years older or less. There were some nervy moments for United’s new-look back line in the game’s early moments, as Fredy Montero and Nate Jaqua were a handful for Dejan Jakovic and Ethan White.
