Historic Night for Jaime

Jaime Moreno set a league goalscoring record as D.C. United won a crucial conference match over New York. Many of his goals (33) the past few years have been penalties, yet on the historic night of his 109th MLS goal, Moreno did much more than just convert from the spot. His flicks and touches and dummies unhinged the Red Bull New York backline as D.C. (11-6-3) rolled to a 3-1 victory at RFK Stadium.

Ben Olsen scored in the sixth minute and two minutes later delivered a deflected cross that Christian Gomez headed home for all the goals United would need.

Juan Pablo Angel put away a penalty in the 21st minute after Troy Perkins had upended Dane Richards, who'd followed up as Angel stripped the ball from Marc Burch before being tripped by the United left back.

Referee Ricardo Salazar waved play on, then pointed to the spot, from which Angel collected his 13th goal of the season.

Hunter Freeman, who struggled all night to contain D.C. attackers pouring into his zone, fouled Luciano Emilio three minutes into the second half to set the stage for Moreno. He duly delivered, hammering the ball past Ronald Wattereus for a 3-1 lead.

Perkins saved from Angel, Clint Mathis and Mike Magee to hand the Red Bulls (10-8-3) that broke the tie in the standings between the teams. After the final whistle, United players paraded with the Atlantic Cup in front of their fans, who chanted Moreno's name long after he'd vanished from their sight.
