DC United beats Earthquakes 3-1
Stieber opened the scoring in the 15th minute, slipping behind the defense on Luciano Acosta’s long ball and slotting it past goalkeeper Andrew Tarbell.
Five minutes later, Acosta intercepted a pass deep in Earthquakes territory and fed Mattocks for a narrow-angle finish to make it 2-0.
Asad added a third for United (2-5-2) in the 37th minute after Paul Arriola forced another San Jose turnover.
Danny Hoesen capped the scoring late in the first half with a left-footed second attempt in the 43rd minute – his sixth goal of the season for the Earthquakes (2-6-3).
