D.C. United earns first victory since March 2

The nightmare is over for D.C. United. Facing a San Jose Earthquakes club playing without last year's Golden Boot winner, Chris Wondolowski, and forward Steven Lenhart, United (2-11-3, 9points) cashed in on a penalty kick by Chris Pontius in the 10th minute and held on the rest of the way for a 1-0 victory at RFK Stadium, ending a club-record 13-game winless streak. The win was United's second of the season and first since March 2. San Jose, in its second match under interim head coach Mark Watson, is winless in five of its past six (4-7-6, 18 points). United received the penalty kick when Chris Korb dribbled into the box and was tripped on a tackle by defender Justin Morrow.
