In the midst of a heated playoff race, Neagle continues to be a difference maker, scoring two goals in D.C. United’s 2-1 victory over previously top of the table Toronto FC at BMO Field on Saturday. The brace was the first of the season for Neagle, as he now leads United with nine goals to go along with six assists in his first year with the club. Over D.C.’s current five-game unbeaten mark, including wins in its previous three matches, Neagle has four goals and two assists, helping catapult the club into the thick of the playoff race in the Eastern Conference (East #5, 43 points, 10-9-13 record).
Neagle would complete his brace in the 58th minute, as he made a run into the box and received a through ball from teammate Lloyd Sam, and sent a right-footed shot just over Irwin for the game-winner (Watch Goal).
D.C. United next welcomes New York City FC to RFK Stadium on Sunday, October 16 (3 p.m. ET).
