Rewind: Crew at D.C. United on 3/23

By Cody Sharrett

In case you'd forgotten, the Crew and D.C. United met almost exactly a month ago in the Nation's Capital. Josh Williams and Ben Speas scored to snap United's 18-match home-unbeaten streak as Andy Gruenebaum made several miraculous second half saves to seal the 2-1 victory.

The win wasn't without controversy, however. It appeared D.C. midfielder Kyle Porter had scored just before halftime to put United up 2-1 at the break. But after a few moments of deliberation, referee Allen Chapman ruled the strike offside. In the days after, the Professional Referee Organization ruled the tally should have counted.

Despite the ruling, the Crew's three points stand-- adding more ammunition in an original MLS rivalry.
