[CONCACAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE] Eddie Johnson is currently suspended from MLS play, but that suspension doesn't carry over to the Concacaf Champions League, where his early goal held up for a 1-0 victory for D.C. United over Jamaica's Waterhouse. The Montreal Impact made it two-for-two against FAS with a 3-2 win in El Salvador thanks to two goals and an assist from Italian Marco Di Vaio.

Johnson was the only regular starter Coach Ben Olsen started against Waterhouse, and United struggled after taking the lead when Johnson scored on a pass from recent acquisition David Estrada.

Waterhouse, which beat Tauro FC of Panama, 2-1, on the road in its CCL debut, finished with a 21-6 edge in shots but could only put six shots on target, all stopped by keeper Joe Willis.
