May 18, 2014 - 1:18 AM Washington, D.C. ( - Eddie Johnson picked a fine time to score his first MLS goal with D.C. United.

After a scoreless opening period, Jack McInerney broke the deadlock in the 56th minute, taking a square pass from Justin Mapp and poking home a goal against the run of play.

D.C. (4-3-3) improves to 15 points on the season, eight points better than Montreal (1-5-4).
