Digest (April 14): Segura leads D.C. United to victory over Columbus Crew at Naval Academy

Ulises Segura scored his first MLS goal and Steve Clark had a shutout in his first action of the season to help DC United beat the Columbus Crew 1-0 on Saturday night at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.

Segura side-netted a half-volley from the top of the box in the first minute. Lucian Acosta back-heeled it to Paul Arriola, who tapped it to Segura.


Clark, who started all but two regular-season games for the Columbus from 2014-16, finished with five saves for United (1-3-2). He made a pair of diving, one-handed saves: the first turned away a header by Pedro Santos from point-blank range in the 61st before stopping a header by Gyasi Zardes in the 65th minute.

Columbus (3-3-1) outshot United 24-5, its second consecutive match with at least 20 shots and no goals. The Crew has lost three in a row for the first time since May of 2014.


Arriola was given a straight red card in the 51st minute for a foul on Artur de Lima Jr.

Men's college volleyball: Stevenson captured the inaugural Middle Atlantic Conference men's title with a 25-15, 25-22, 25-19 win over Arcadia. The top-seeded Mustangs (21-8) earn a berth into the NCAA Division III Championship.

College baseball: Towson University starter David Marriggi threw seven shutout innings, and Craig Alleyne collected four hits to lead the Tigers to a 6-0 victory over The Citadel in the first game of a doubleheader Saturday afternoon.
