Carroll put the Union (7-12-3) ahead in the eighth minute when he bundled the ball over the line after the United’s Emiliano Dudar headed away a previous Philadelphia shot.

D.C. (11-8-4) tied it in the 71st on an own goal set up by Dwayne De Rosario’s free kick. De Rosario also appeared to send D.C. into the lead in an 87th minute on a penalty kick but the attempt was ordered retaken because of encroachment by another United player.

D.C. midfielder Branko Boskovic was sent off for wrestling a Union player to the ground during protests that followed, and three minutes later De Rosario missed the retry high.
