United squanders 2-0 lead, settles for 2-2 tie vs. Chivas
In its first home game in almost six weeks, D.C. United (8-8-11) relinquished a two-goal advantage in the second half, playing to a 2-2 tie with Chivas USA (7-12-11) and squandering a sure opportunity to overtake New York in the tightly bunched Eastern Conference standings in MLS. While the Red Bulls were losing at home to Real Salt Lake, United built its lead on goals by Dwayne De Rosario late in the first half and rookie Ethan White early in the second. But Juan Pablo Angel answered with goals 12 minutes apart and De Rosario failed to convert a highly questionable penalty kick in the waning moments in front of an announced 14,849 at RFK Stadium.
