WASHINGTON -- Powered by some inspired goalkeeping from Josh Wicks, D.C. United edged out the Chicago Fire 2-1 in a tense encounter at RFK Stadium to seize control of first place in the MLS Eastern Conference.

Chicago fought valiantly but were undone by a Jaime Moreno penalty kick and a devastating free kick goal from Christian Gomez in the first half after Marco Pappa had leveled terms, thought it took a clutch save from Wicks to ensure the result as the D.C. netminder denied Brian McBride on a Fire spot kick in the second stanza.

WASHINGTON -- D.C. United maintained their mastery of the New York Red Bulls on Thursday night, securing the Atlantic Cup for the seventh time in the trophy's eight years of existence with a 2-0 win at a rain-soaked RFK Stadium.

Though the visitors set after their I-95 rivals with energy and intensity, United's midfield was marginally superior on the evening and in the end New York had no answer for a well-crafted first-half goal from Santino Quaranta. Jaime Moreno sealed the result with a late penalty kick that runs his career scoring total to 126 goals.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Siete fechas tuvo que esperar el New England Revolution para reencontarse con la victoria y, de no haber sido por la colaboración del árbitro Hilario Grajeda, quien le regaló un penal sobre el final, lo más probable es que su sequía de triunfos hubiera seguido la noche del sábado en el Estadio Gillette frente al D.C. United.

Sin embargo, el silbante se compró el piscinazo de Taylor Twellman dentro del área, ante el asombro del injustamente castigado defensor Bryan Namoff, y Steve Ralston liquidó desde los 12 pasos para otorgar a los Revs la victoria 2-1.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Steve Ralston's 90th-minute penalty kick gave the New England Revolution a 2-1 win against D.C. United at Gillette Stadium.

United capped a dominant first half by opening the scoring through Fred in the 36th minute. New England -- boosted by Taylor Twellman's first appearance since last October -- responded in the second half and equalized through Shalrie Joseph in the 55th minute. Twellman then drew a penalty kick in the final minute after Bryan Namoff tugged him down and Ralston converted to snap United's seven-match unbeaten streak.
