WASHINGTON – Santino Quaranta and Jamie Moreno scored and Nick Rimando earned his fifth shutout, helping D.C. United snap New England’s 11-game unbeaten streak with a 2-0 victory Saturday night.

Quaranta opened the scoring with a header in the 10th minute, his second goal of the season. He also assisted on Moreno’s team-leading sixth goal two minutes later.

The Revolution fell to 7-1-4, and one game shy of the MLS record for an unbeaten start to the season.

In the 10th minute, United midfielder Christian Gomez lofted a free kick toward the center of the goal box. Revolution goalie Matt Reis tried to intercept the pass, but the ball caromed off a group of players and bounced to Quaranta, who headed it over a Revolution defender.

Before the crowd of 17,611 was finished celebrating that goal, Moreno moved past two defenders with a crossover dribble and sent a low, right-footed shot past Reis.

Rimando had to make strong saves on shots by New England midfielder Steve Ralston with just over 10 minutes left in the game.

D.C. United was playing without Freddy Adu, who is playing for U.S. team at the World Youth Championships.
