[MLS: Week 8] Seven games into the 2014 MLS season, D.C. United has matched its win total for the 2013 season, and it did it in impressive fashion, knocking off MLS's hottest team, FC Dallas, 4-1, for its third win in the last four games.

Eddie Johnson was again held scoreless, but he had the game's key play, setting up Fabian Espindola for the tying goal just before halftime.

Bobby Boswell
put United ahead in the 60th minute and Espindola added a goal and assist against FC Dallas, which finished with nine players following red cards to Zach Loyd and Michel.

The win moved D.C. United into a four-way tie for second place, a point behind Columbus, which tied New York, 1-1.



Real Salt Lake remained the only unbeaten team, but the lost points piled up as it blew another late lead, drawing with Vancouver, 2-2, after leading 2-0 in the 86th minute.

RSL led the 'Caps, 2-0, after seven minutes, but it gave up goals to Uruguayans Nicolas Mezquida in the 86th minute and Sebastian Fernandez in the fourth minute of stoppage time.

The New England-Sporting Kansas City game was also decided in stoppage time as Teal Bunbury scored his first goal for the Revs and Lee Nguyen added a second goal in stoppage time to defeat short-handed Sporting KC, 2-0.

Both Montreal and San Jose won for the first time this season, earning 1-0 victories over Philadelphia and Chivas USA, respectively.
