SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Dwayne De Rosario scored a pair of second-half goals and D.C. United hung on despite playing a man down for the final 20 minutes to beat the San Jose Earthquakes 2-0 Saturday night.
De Rosario scored in the 57th and 67th minutes against the team that gave him his MLS start in 2001.
D.C. United, which hasn’t lost on the road since April 29, beat the Earthquakes in their home stadium for the first time since June 3, 1998. Current United coach Ben Olsen had a goal and an assist in that game.
D.C. United’s Andy Najar was red carded in the 70th minute for hauling down Joey Gjertsen, who slipped behind the visitors’ defense. But San Jose still couldn’t score. Its winless streak reached nine games, the longest since the franchise was re-established in 2008.
