It wasn't quite peak Benny-ball, but it got the job done, albeit controversially.

A controversial penalty call proved just enough for D.C. United, who escaped Vancouver with a 1-0 win over the Whitecaps. The win was D.C. United's first in four games while the Whitecaps settled for their second loss in three matches.

Lamar Neagle's penalty was the difference as Vancouver hit the woodwork four different times

D.C. United had to endure late penalty drama, but in the end, Lamar Neagle's second half penalty was the difference for the Black-and-Red in their 1-0 win over the Vancouver Whitecaps. After Jose Ortiz controversially won the penalty, Neagle dispatched the spot kick for United's first goal in the month of May, breaking a 366 minute scoreless run.

Def gonna lose, guys.

It probably goes without saying, but I'll say it nonetheless: D.C. United are not playing well. Normally, a three-game home stint would end in some sweet, sweet points to buoy a team into a couple road trips, but the Black-and-Red are instead coming off three losses in a row.

D.C. United once again disappointed their home fans, falling 1-0 to the Chicago Fire and barely ever carving out chances.

The youngster deserves his shot

D.C. United will take on the Chicago Fire this weekend, having lost two straight games with poor performances in both. While the defense has been poor as well, much of the problem starts with the fact that United has been unable to connect the defense and the midfield, and that midfield has been unable to prevent people from driving through it.
