Final Score: D.C. United 3, Toronto FC 0
Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - Chris Pontius and Charlie Davies scored in the
opening 10 minutes and D.C. United defeated Toronto FC, 3-0, on Saturday night
at BMO Field in Major League Soccer.
Pontius scored his first goal of the year in the fifth minute and Davies added
his league-leading fifth in the 10th minute for United (2-2-1), which won for
the first time since opening week. Pontius added another goal in the 73rd.
Toronto (1-2-3) lost for the first time since its season opener, ending a span
of four matches - three draws and a win - without a loss.
Pontius took a pass from Dejan Jakovic on the edge of the area, drove into the
box on the left side and fired a left-footed shot to the far post past Toronto
goalie Stefan Frei to score the opening goal.
United added its second goal five minutes later after Josh Wolff forced a save
from Frei, who sent a deflection toward Davies on the right. Davies slid in to
beat a defender to the ball and scored inside the right post from 12 yards.
Pontius scored his second goal in the closing stages when he made a great cut
to open space and fired inside the far post to clinch a huge road victory for
United. Fred assisted on the final goal.
D.C. will try to build on the win Thursday when it hosts Red Bull New York and
Toronto FC will try to rebound April 23 when it hosts the Columbus Crew.
