* Maicon Santos came off the bench and scored the winner in D.C. United's 3-2 victory over New England. He joined MLS in 2009 and scored twice before moving to Toronto in the middle of the 2010 season, which he finished with six goals. In 2011, in 30 games, he scored six goals for Toronto and two for Dallas before moving to D.C. United in the offseason. The 28-year-old Brazilian now has seven goals in 13 games (10 starts) this season.
