Segura's first MLS goal, Clark help DC United beat Crew 1-0

ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Ulises Segura scored his first MLS goal and Steve Clark had a shutout in his first action of the season to help DC United beat the Columbus Crew 1-0 on Saturday night at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.

Segura side-netted a half-volley from the top of the box in the first minute. Lucian Acosta back-heeled it to Paul Arriola, who tapped it to Segura.

Clark, who started all but two regular-season games for the Columbus from 2014-16, finished with five saves for United (1-3-2). He made a pair of diving, one-handed saves: the first turned away a header by Pedro Santos from point-blank range in the 61st before stopping a header by Gyasi Zardes in the 65th minute.

Columbus (3-3-1) outshot United 24-5, its second consecutive match with at least 20 shots and no goals. The Crew has lost three in a row for the first time since May of 2014.

Arriola was given a straight red card in the 51st minute for a foul on Artur de Lima Jr.
