                     === Johnson helps DCU tie Montreal ===
 
 Washington,  D.C.  (SportsNetwork.com) -  Eddie Johnson picked  a fine time to
 score his first MLS goal with D.C. United.
 
 The  United  States international netted  a goal six  minutes from time at RFK
 Stadium  on  Saturday to see United  salvage a point  from a 1-1 draw with the
 Montreal Impact.
 
 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.
 
 Montreal looked likely to hold on for all three points until Johnson struck in
 the  84th  minute, sending a  thumping header past  Troy Perkins in the Impact
 net.
 
 D.C.  (4-3-3)  improves to 15  points on the  season, eight points better than
 Montreal (1-5-4).
