MLS: D.C. United Retain Eastern Conference Lead with 1-1 Draw

The D.C. United and the visiting San Jose Earthquakes battled to a 1-1 draw on Saturday night in front of 18,000 fans at Audi Field.

San Jose struck first as a goal by Chris Wondolowski in the 7th minute gave the Quakes a 1-0 lead going into halftime. Wondolowski is the MLS all-time leader in goals scored, and this one was the 151st of his MLS career.

San Jose had the better of the play in the first half, but the second half told a different story. D.C. United’s Luciano Acosta scored the team’s lone goal in the match’s 68 minute, but it was the outstanding play of Quakes keeper Daniel Vega that kept San Jose from falling behind.

San Jose moved its record to 5-6-3 on the season after starting it 0-4. Their 18 points puts them in 8th place in the Western Conference.
