Stern John scored his eight goal of the season on Sunday but that was not enough to help the Columbus Crew fall 4-3 to DC United. John scored in the 29th minute to send the Crew up 2-1. However, DC came back to even the game at 3-3 in the 67th minute. The game remained level at the end of regulation play and progressed to a shoot-out to decide the winner. John's attempt in the shoot-out period was saved and DC prevailed to move to the top of the MLS East division.
