WASHINGTON -- Kyle Porter scored the first goal of his MLS career in the 65th minute to help D.C. United tie Sporting Kansas City 1-1 on Sunday.

The goal allowed United (1-8-2) to snap a club record seven-game losing streak and a five-game losing streak against Kansas City. United is still winless in their last nine games with an 0-7-2 record.

Sporting KC (6-4-3) scored earlier in the second half on an own goal. The team had an apparent goal disallowed for what appeared to be an incorrect offside call in the first half.

Porter tied it for United with a sliding finish of Chris Pontius's curling cross from the right. The rookie's first goal in nine appearances marked the first time this season United has scored in back-to-back games.

Sporting KC took the lead in the 60th minute after a corner kick. The ball bounced off United defender Ethan White's head and looped past goalkeeper Bill Hamid into the net.
