Union 2, United 2

Carlos Ruiz scored his fifth goal of the season in the 84th

minute to help the Philadelphia Union earn a 2-2 draw with D.C.

United on Saturday night.

Sebastien Le Toux sent a long ball down the right side to

Sheanon Williams, who quickly directed a cross to Ruiz charging

down the middle. Ruiz then scored from five yards, giving him goals

in consecutive games, as the Union (7-4-6) salvaged a point despite

never leading.

United (4-5-7) took the lead when Andy Najar fired a 35-yard

strike in the 58th minute. That briefly made up for Perry Kitchen’s

own goal in the 49th minute, a redirect from the middle of the box

off Veljko Paunovic’s cross. It proved costly as United’s winless

streak reached five games.

Dwayne De Rosario assisted on Josh Wolff’s goal in the 44th

minute in his first game with United since being acquired from the

New York Red Bulls on Monday.
