MLS: D.C. United 1, Los Angeles Galaxy 0 (July 23)

DC: 8-6-5 (3rd in East, 7 points behind Chicago)

The Los Angeles Galaxy hadn't lost a game at home until Freddy Adu's goal in stoppage time in the second half gave D.C. United a dramatic win.

Adu's shot from 20 feet out netted him just his second goal this season.

Throughout the game, D.C. stifled L.A. defensively, only allowing eight shots, two of which were on goal. D.C. had 13 shots, but they also only had two on goal. The difference is, of course, that one went in.

D.C. United now has off until Thursday, when they return home to play Real Salt Lake (4-11-4, 5th in West) at RFK Stadium. Game time is 7:30 p.m.
