WASHINGTON (AP) — D.C. United’s Kofi Opare and Chris Rolfe scored second-half goals as the hosts beat Orlando City 2-1 on Wednesday to extend their undefeated streak to eight games

It’s D.C. United’s longest unbeaten stretch since 2007.

Rookie Cyle Larin gave Orlando City a 1-0 lead in the 11th minute and that advantage lasted until the 70th minute when Opare leapt over his marker and headed in Taylor Kemp’s free kick.

Rolfe, who entered the game in the 54th minute, stretched to touch home Miguel Aguilar’s chipped pass in the 79th.

D.C. United is undefeated in 14 straight league home games.
