D.C. United’s Chris Durkin was sent off with a red card in the first minute of the second-half stoppage time after receiving his second yellow card of the match. That left Inter Miami with a man-advantage for the final six minutes but they weren’t able to take advantage.
Inter Miami took a 1-0 lead in the 31st minute when Ariel Lassiter sent a left-footed cross in front of the goal to Campana, whose right-footed shot caromed off Hamid and into the net. The goal was Campana’s sixth of the season.
Miami doubled the lead 14 minutes later off a corner kick. Jean Mota sent it toward the middle of the box and Lowe was ready and snapped a one-hop header into the right corner of the net for his first MLS goal.
But D.C. United answered in the third minute of first-half stoppage time as Michael Estrada’s touch pass off his leg set up Fountas, who sent a right-footer into the right corner. It was the fifth goal of the season for Fountas, all coming in the past four matches.
