Wayne Rooney’s DC to finish with fewest points in MLS
MONTREAL (AP) — Wayne Rooney’s D.C. United was assured of finishing with the fewest points in Major League Soccer after Montreal took advantage of an own goal in a 1-0 win on Saturday night.
Rooney, a former Manchester United and England great, took over as coach in July from Hernán Losada. D.C. (7-20-6) has 27 points and is 14th and last in the Eastern Conference with one game remaining, against visiting Cincinnati on Oct. 9.
Donovan Pines deflected Zachary Brault-Guillard’s cross past goalkeeper David Ochoa in the 41st minute.
Montreal’s James Pantemis had two saves.
Montreal (19-9-5), which already had clinched a playoff berth, closes the regular season Oct. 9 at home against Inter Miami (7-20-6).
