Washington, D.C. (SportsNetwork.com) - 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.

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.
