CARSON, Calif. (AP) — Darren Mattocks weaved through three defenders and scored over David Bingham to help DC United earn a 2-2 draw with the LA Galaxy on Wednesday night.

The Galaxy could have climbed above the playoff line in the Western Conference with a win.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored five minutes into the game to give the Galaxy the lead, one-touching a cross from Dave Romney. Chris Pontius made it 2-0 with a goal in the 25th minute on a shot from atop the box that found the far corner.

Luciano Acosta found Zoltan Stieber a minute later to cut the deficit, and then Mattocks got his eighth goal of the season, setting a new season high.

Both teams managed 13 shots. The Galaxy had four shots on target; DC United managed three.
