    The D.C. United soccer team lost their last RFK Stadium game against the New York Red Bulls.

    The newest member of the team, Paul Arriola, scored D.C. United the first point of the game 44 minutes in. It was Arriola's first goal for D.C. United.

    In the 75th minute, with D.C. United down a man, Gonzalo Veron scored the Red Bulls their second point. 

    The team lost two to one in the season and stadium finale.

    D.C. United has played 22 seasons of soccer at RFK Stadium, according to the team's website. They plan to play future games at Audi Field, which is set to open at Buzzard Point in 2018.
