Toronto’s Convey, United’s De Rosario score in tie
Convey, who began his MLS career with D.C. in 2000 before departing for England in 2004, neatly finished off a pass from Reggie Lambe inside the 18-yard box after a poor clearance by United defender Dejan Jakovic. It was Convey’s first goal for Toronto (4-12-9).
Dwayne De Rosario also scored against his former team, giving United (3-17-5) the lead with a long-range strike in the 10th minute. D.C., last in the Eastern Conference, has won just once in its last nine matches.
De Rosario, who played for Toronto FC in parts of three seasons from 2009-11, took a looping long ball from Perry Kitchen on the left flank, cut back to the right past two defenders and sent in his right-footed shot from 30 years into the top corner past a sprawling Joseph Bendik.
It was De Rosario’s third goal of the season, tying him for the team lead with Luis Silva.
De Rosario nearly doubled United’s lead during first-half stoppage time but Bendik pushed his left-footed blast out of bounds for a corner kick.
In the 68th minute, United nearly regained its advantage when Luis Silva connected on an acrobatic scissor kick from point-blank range but his efforts were denied by a reaction save from Bendik.
De Rosario’s free kick was again saved by Bendik a minute later.
Bendik finished with eight saves.
