After wild finish, United draws with Union, 1-1
Dwayne De Rosario missed a retaken penalty kick in a wild ending at RFK Stadium that included three red cards as nine-man D.C. United tied the 10-man Philadelphia Union, 1-1, Sunday in Major League Soccer. Brian Carroll scored early for the Union (7-12-3), but Amobi Okugo gifted the goal back on an own goal in the 71st, and the last few minutes of the game were marred by a questionable retaken penalty, three reds and a fight between D.C. players. De Rosario initially converted the penalty, but referee Mark Geiger ordered it to be retaken although it appeared a Union player had entered the box early. United (11-8-4) lost Branko Boskovic to a red after a scrum, and De Rosario missed on his second attempt. Just seconds later, Emiliano Dudar was sent off for a challenge from behind as United went down to nine men, then the Union's Sheanon Williams earned his second yellow card. Williams was involved in a confrontation with United players, including goalie Bill Hamid, as he initially refused to leave the field and; after the whistle, D.C. defenders Chris Korb and Brandon McDonald shoved each other and needed to be separated. The draw extended United's home undefeated streak to 11 games.
