D.C. United Extends Unbeaten Streak
(AP) - Cobi Jones scored in the 88th minute to lift the Los Angeles Galaxy into a 1-1 tie with D.C. United on Sunday night that broke a club-record seven-game losing streak.
The Galaxy (2-9-2) were playing their second match under new head coach Frank Yallop, who replaced Steve Sampson on Wednesday.
United (7-1-4) extended its unbeaten streak to six games and widened its lead in the Eastern Conference to eight points over Kansas City.
Paulo Nagamura began the tying play with a pass that United's Domenic Mediate deflected. Jones headed the ball downward as goalkeeper Troy Perkins approached, and Jones scored from 8 yards into an empty net.
Jones, who entered the game in the 67th minute, was playing for the first time since May 20. He missed the previous three games because of a sprained right foot.
Christian Gomez gave United a 1-0 lead in the 21st minute. Gomez volleyed Facundo Erpen's pass, pivoted around defender Ugo Ihemelu and lofted a 25-yard shot over goalkeeper Kevin Hartman's right shoulder.
