D.C. United returned to the Audi Field pitch Friday and preserved their unbeaten streak to seven games by rallying from a 2-0 deficit.

In the 32nd minute, Carles Gil made it 2-0 Revolution.

D.C. United would refuse to go down. They got huge momentum just before the half in the 43rd minute off the foot of Leo Jara. Jara tapped a cross-field pass from Paul Arriola.

In the 86th minute, D.C. United equalized it. On a free kick from Rooney, Quincy Amarikwa tapped it in to even the score at 2.

It was the second straight home match D.C. United got a draw in dramatic fashion. The Black and Red sit second in the East with 32 points, four back of the Philadelphia Union.

D.C. United returns to action Thursday on the road against FC Cincinnati.
