SEATTLE —

D.C. United's Chris Pontius has lost a hat trick a day after he was credited with one in a 3-2 victory over the Seattle Sounders.

Major League Soccer reviewed the goals in Thursday night's game and credited one to Adam Cristman on Friday.

The play in the 79th minute started when Santino Quaranta sent a free kick toward the left side of the penalty area. Pontius headed a shot across the box toward the far post. Sounders goalkeeper Kasey Keller chased it as Cristman just got a touch on the ball to poke it into the net, giving United a 3-0 lead.

Also on Friday, Seattle's James Riley, who was credited with scoring early in the 90th minute, had that one taken away. The league changed it to an own goal by United's Barry Rice.
