ORLANDO, Fla. (AP)—Luis Silva scored in the first minute of stoppage time and Bill Hamid recorded his third shutout of the season as D.C. United beat Orlando City SC 1-0 on Friday night.

Silva, who made his first appearance of the season in the 76th minute, curled in a free kick from outside the 18-yard box past a diving Donovan Ricketts.

United had three shots on goal within 10 seconds in the 58th minute. Conor Doyle had an open look from just outside the 18-yard box pushed aside by Ricketts and Chris Pontius' rebound attempt was cleared by defender Brek Shea at the goal-line. The ball sailed into the air and Pontius' header was punched away by Ricketts.

Hamid, the 2014 MLS Goalkeeper of the Year, kept United (3-1-0) even with Orlando City FC (1-2-2) in the first half with a wide array of saves. He stayed low to make a body stop in the 33rd minute, charged to defend a breakaway in the 41st and dove to gather a header in the 45th.
