[MLS PRESEASON: Carolina Challenge] After dropping all three games in Florida and not scoring a goal, D.C. United moved on to its old preseason stomping grounds at the Carolina Challenge Cup and pulled out a win. It took an own goal to break the drought, but it used that and a late goal by Jamaican teenager Michael Seaton to beat the Houston Dynamo, 2-0. A late penalty kick from Brad Evans gave Seattle a 2-1 win over the host Charleston Battery in the nightcap.

Nick DeLeon’s hard cross was intercepted by a retreating David Horst, but the first-year Dynamo defender was unable to control the deflection and it went past the advancing keeper Tyler Deric.

Both teams went more than 70 minutes with their first teamers before emptying their benches.
