Neagle put the finishing touches on a terrific 20th-minute buildup to put D.C. United in front, 1-0, when he latched onto a perfectly floated ball from Luciano Acosta and putting his first-time volley past Brad Knighton from 10 yards out.
On the counter seven minutes later, Neagle played provider when he took a terrific through ball from Alvaro Saborio and played a low cross to the edge of the six-yard box where Franklin hammered in his first goal of the season.
