WASHINGTON (AP) — D.C. United defender Daniel Woolard knocked the ball into his own net in the 41st minute, giving Toronto FC its first victory since March 9 with a 2-1 win Saturday night.

Robert Earnshaw scored on a header in the 30th minute after United went ahead 1-0. Then Woolard inadvertently headed the ball into the back of his own net to give Toronto the go-ahead goal.

Toronto (2-7-5) snapped an 11-match winless streak (0-6-5) with its best offensive performance of the season on the road. The club had scored just three times in six previous games away from BMO Field.

Dwayne De Rosario had given United (1-11-3) just its second lead of the season in the 19th minute with goal on a penalty kick.
