Orlando City holds on with 9 men, beats DC United to snap winless streak
WASHINGTON (AP) — Cyle Larin and Giles Barnes scored first-half goals and Orlando City held on after having two men sent off late in the second half to beat D.C. United 2-1 on Saturday night.
Dom Dwyer set up the opening goal with a low hard cross in the 19th minute that Larin finished. Barnes made it 2-0 in the 28th minute, getting an open look after a defensive miscue left a loose ball at his feet.
Orlando City (9-12-7) went down to 10 men when Servando Carrasco was sent off for his second yellow card in the 79th minute. Kofi Opare pulled United (8-16-4) to 2-1 in the 89th minute.
Orlando’s Seb Hines received a straight red in the fifth minute of second-half stoppage time and play continued into the 11th minute of stoppage time before Orlando ended its eight-game winless streak.
