WASHINGTON (AP) — Davy Arnaud scored on a diving header in the fourth minute in D.C. United's 1-0 victory over the New York Red Bulls on Saturday night.
Fabian Espindola, who played for the Red Bulls last season and was selected by United in the re-entry draft, sent in a corner kick that defender Bobby Boswell flicked toward the back post, where Arnaud finished it for his first goal for D.C. The goal was the fastest for United since Chris Pontius scored in the first minute against New York on June 24, 2012, in a 3-2 loss.
After snapping a club-record 15 game winless streak last week, United (2-2-1) has won consecutive games for the first time since the end of the 2012 season.
The Red Bulls (0-2-4) had their string of four consecutive draws broken with the loss. New York, last season's Supporters' Shield winner, also was winless after six games in 2005 (0-1-5).
