FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Jose Moreno made his first MLS start and scored the opening goal in the sixth minute, but Maicon Santos and Chris Pontius responded for D.C. United to hand the visitors a 2-1 win over the New England Revolution on Saturday afternoon at Gillette Stadium.
It was Moreno’s first MLS goal after making his debut last week at FC Dallas and it gave the Revs (2-4-0, 6 pts.) an early lead for the second straight home game. The advantage was short-lived, however, as Santos scored the equalizer for United (2-2-2, 8 pts.) in the 19th minute and Pontius bagged the game winner in the 82nd minute just three minutes after entering the game as a substitute.
