C.J. Sapong began his sophomore year with a bang, sneaking through the D.C. United defense to head home a late winner in Sporting KC's 1-0 win in front of 16,314 fans at RFK Stadium on Saturday night.

D.C. keeper Bill Hamid had been the story of the first 90 minutes, stymieing Sporting at every turn. But in the 93rd minute, second half substitute Sapong lost his marker on a corner kick, found space and placed a clinical header inside the near post.

Sporting KC tested Hamid again and again, as Zusi and Espinoza both had opportunities to give KC the lead midway through the second half. Three times the two created chances for themselves, but each time the United veteran keeper covered the shot to eliminate any further danger.

DC United (0-1-0) travels to the west coast to take on defending MLS Cup Champions LA Galaxy on Sunday, March 18 at the Home Depot Center.
