CHESTER, Pa. (AP) — Zach Pfeffer scored in second-half stoppage time and the Philadelphia Union beat D.C. United 1-0 on Sunday night to snap a four-game losing streak.
Philadelphia (2-7-3) ended its five-game winless streak, while D.C. United (6-2-3), the Eastern Conference leader, had its eight-game undefeated streak stopped.
Fabinho sent in a cross in the 93rd minute that Sebastien Le Toux let play through his legs. Pfeffer settled the ball with his right and slotted a left-footed shot past goalkeeper Bill Hamid at the near post.
It was Philadelphia's first goal since April 25.
Pfeffer and Fabinho were both second-half subs. Fabinho was the first sub of the game in the 58th minute and Pfeffer entered in the 71st.
"I got myself in a good spot in the box and took a touch and finished it," said Pfeffer, from Philadelphia. "Came away with three points, I'm so happy."
Philadelphia goalkeeper Brian Sylvestre got his first MLS shutout in his second appearance.
