With Audi Field in sight, D.C. United closed its long road trip with a 2-2 draw against the LA Galaxy thanks to a late equalizer from forward Darren Mattocks.
Galaxy star Zlatan Ibrahimovic opened scoring early in the 5th minute with a quick volley past goalkeeper David Ousted. Former D.C. United midfielder Chris Pontius was quick to add a second for the Galaxy. Less than a minute later, United's Zoltan Stieber had an answer to bring United back within one goal.
After almost 45 minutes of back-and-fourth soccer, with plenty of offsides called, Mattocks broke through to find the equalizer for United. Midfielder Paul Arriola gave a quick pass to Mattocks who shimmed his way through the Galaxy defense for the final score of the game.
