WASHINGTON (AP) -- Dwayne De Rosario scored two first-half goals, and D.C. United handed Toronto FC its MLS-record ninth loss to open the season, 3-1 on Saturday night. Hamdi Salihi added a second-half goal for United (7-4-3). The Washington club is unbeaten in its last seven home matches, including victories in the last four. Danny Koevermans scored for Toronto, a loss away from tying the league record for the longest losing streak at any point in a season. Real Salt Lake lost 10 in a row in 2005. De Rosario has scored three goals in his last five matches, and has four multi-goal games since D.C. acquired him in a trade last June with the New York Red Bulls. He put United ahead in the first minute when he outraced Toronto's Ashtone Morgan and headed in Branko Boskovic's free kick. De Rosario doubled D.C.'s lead in the 43rd when he drove in Chris Korb's low cross after Josh Wolff played Korb down the right. Toronto appeared to have new life in the 71st minute when Koevermans reached a long, straight free kick from Julian de Guzman and scored from close range. But Salihi struck 2 minutes later, reaching Andy Najar's cross after Najar eluded de Guzman and Jeremy Hall on the right. Salihi, signed in the offseason from Austrian club Rapid Vienna, has four goals in his last five games after failing to score in United's first nine matches.
VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Lamar Neagle scored on a penalty kick in the 61st minute and D.C. United beat the Vancouver Whitecaps 1-0 on Saturday to snap a three-game losing streak.
The penalty was awarded after defender Kendall Waston was called for hauling down Jose Ortiz in the box. The B.C. Place Stadium fans voiced their displeasure when replays showed Waston barely touched Ortiz.
Neagle sent the ball into the top corner for his sixth goal of the season. United improved to 4-6-2.
The Whitecaps (5-6-1) had a chance to tie it in extra time. Vancouver was awarded a penalty kick following a collision between United goalkeeper Bill Hamid and Vancouver's Brek Shea. Cristian Techera took the shot, but hit the post.
D.C. United participated at the annual White House Easter Egg Roll on Monday at the invite of event organizers.
Throughout the day, the select players on hand played soccer with the children present.
And one of them was Barron Trump, the 11-year-old son of President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump.
While there, United forward Patrick Mullins and midfielders Julian Buescher and Marcelo Sarvas all received an unscheduled invitation to meet Barron in the White House, where they talked soccer and even kicked around the ball. Sarvas' eldest son, who is around Barron's age, and Talon, the United mascot, also played.
“He was very knowledgeable about soccer, knew about D.C. United and was interested to know more,” Mullins told the Washington Post. “Little kid to have a passion for the game and to be knowledgeable and have a conversation with us, it makes me feel good about kids growing up playing the game.”
At some point during the day, 94.7 Fresh FM’s Dana McKay tweeted a photo of Barron outside the White House playing soccer in an Arsenal jersey.
According to the Post, Barron received a D.C. United soccer ball that was signed by the players and personalized with a message welcoming him to Washington. He also has an open invitation from the team to visit with them.
Barron currently lives in New York City with his mother.
