Frank Lampard scores twice, NYCFC beats DC United 3-2

NEW YORK (AP) - Frank Lampard scored his second goal of the match three minutes into stoppage time to give New York City FC a 3-2 victory over D.C. United on Thursday night.

Lampard took a pass from Khiry Shelton at the top of the area, faked a defender and goalkeeper Bill Hamid with the right, and slammed it home with the left. NYC improved to 12-8-8.

United (7-9-11) led 1-0 late, but NYC's David Villa scored in the 79th minute thanks to a crucial mistake by United defender Sean Franklin, whose back-pass fed David Villa on a clean breakaway. In the 85th minute, after a physical scramble in the corner for a loose ball, Shelton pushed it to the center of the box. Villa tapped it to Lampard before getting hauled down, and Lampard buried it for the go-ahead.

Lloyd Sam and Lamar Neagle scored for D.C. United. Neagle's header evened it at 2 in the first minute of stoppage time.
