Atlanta United returned home from a long road trip only to be greeted rudely by D.C. United. The elder United prevailed 3-1 despite a bright start from Atlanta. Kenwyne Jones scored the match’s first goal in the 9th minute and the Five Stripes appeared to have full control of play. However, an own goal turned the tides and Atlanta never recovered. After Luciano Acosta made easy work of Atlanta’s defense to give D.C. the lead, heads dropped and another would be added in the second half. Tata Martino’s side kept pushing to try and get back into the match, but they couldn’t break D.C.’s conservative defense.
