Former NY Red Bull Dwayne De Rosario's winner was his first for DC since being traded from New York two weeks ago, and his fourth of the season. With the win, United improve to 5-5-7, good for 22 points. The Red Bulls suffered their second loss in their last three games, dropping their record to 6-4-10 as they stay on 28 points. The two Atlantic Cup rivals split the season series, with New York winning the first game at RFK Stadium earlier this year.
The goal came as the Red Bulls were building pressure in the attacking third and seemed ready to score. But United grabbed the game’s lone goal on the counterattack in the 61st minute thanks to steady work from Andy Najar.
The DC midfielder fed a ball to De Rosario, who dummied his run to elude midfielder Dax McCarty, the player shipped to New York in exhange for De Rosario in the recent trade. The ball ended up on the foot of forward Josh Wolff, who fed a streaking De Rosario in the box, and the five-time MLS Best XI selection promptly buried a left-footed shot off the far post and in.
