Result: DC United edge past San Jose
A Chris Pontius penalty is enough for DC United to overcome San Jose Earthquakes at the RFK Stadium in Washington.

Bottom-of-the-table DC United have cut the gap on Toronto FC to two points in the MLS Eastern Conference with a narrow 1-0 win over the San Jose Earthquakes.

Chris Pontius scored the only goal of the game at the RFK Stadium in Washington, converting from the spot in the 11th minute after Justin Morrow brought down Chris Korb inside the area.

Shea Salinas worked Bill Hamid as the visitors went in search of an equaliser, while Adam Jahn hit the woodwork with 17 minutes left on the clock.

However, Ben Olsen's men were able to hang on for all three points, which sees the Earthquakes stay eighth in the Western Conference, two behind the Colorado Rapids.
