D.C. United improve to 4-2-3 (15 points) and stays in second place in the Eastern Conference after a 3-2 win over Houston Dynamo (2-1-3, 8 points). The win marks the first back-to-back wins for United since June of 2009. The win also extends United's seven-game unbeaten streak.

After leading 1-0 at the half, the game opened up in the second half.

A wild ten minute stretch saw the score go from a 1-0 dominating United lead to a shocking 2-2 draw by the 59th minute. Dynamo got two goals from Will Bruin, while Dwayne De Rosario scored his first goal of the season on a failed cross that Chris Pontius could not get to.

Maicon Santos scored what would be the game winner in the 70th minute after a beautiful cross from Daniel Woolard. United kept up the attack for the final twenty minutes and had a handful of chances to extend the lead, but could not.

Houston Dynamo vs. D.C. United: United Lead 1-0 At The Half Thanks To Maicon Santos

D.C. United (3-2-3, 12 points) lead Houston Dynamo (2-1-2, 8 points) by a score of 1-0 at the half. United took the lead after a great play by Chris Pontius led to a cross to Maicon Santos, who headed home the goal.

United took control from there, as they maintained long spells of possession and rarely allowed Dynamo to get on the attack.

The rain, which was pounding RFK before the game, let up for most of the half. However, with just a few minutes left in the half, the rain picked up and D.C. United suffered because of it. Perry Kitchen looked like he twisted his ankle, while Emiliano Dudar pulled up lame and grabbed his hamstring.

Dudar had to be subbed off in the 45th minute for Marcelo Saragosa. Perry Kitchen moved into the center of the defense for Dudar, while Saragosa takes over for Kitchen in the midfield.

United will look to maintain the 1-0 lead and win back-to-back games for the first time since 2009, while hoping to escape the elements without any more injuries.
