2. MLS: D.C. United aims to roll on in Salt Lake
July 28th, 2006 2:32PM



D.C. United, which has a 20-point lead on second-place New England in the Eastern Conference, puts its 14-game undefeated streak on the line when it travels to Real Salt Lake, which is winless in its last four games at home.

D.C. United has lost just once this season, May 6 at Colorado. Last season's San Jose Earthquakes set the record for fewest losses in a season with four.

United's 20 wins, with 12 games left, puts it in striking distance of breaking the league's record for wins in a season, held by Los Angeles and D.C. United, which both notched 24 victories in 1998.

D.C. United has conceded just 17 goals this season. The mark for fewest goals ever given up in a MLS season stands at 29 (Los Angeles, 1999), Kansas City Wizards (2000) and (San Jose, 2001).

D.C. United's individual stat leaders are:

Jaime Moreno (9)
Alecko Eskandarian (7)
Christian Gomez (7)
Christian Gomez (7)
Freddy Adu (6)
Jaime Moreno (5)
