WASHINGTON — Key Biscayne’s own Benjamin Cremaschi scored his first career goal for Inter Miami in a 2-2 draw with D.C. United in an MLS match on Saturday night.

Cremaschi took a pass from Robert Taylor in the 59th minute to give Inter Miami a 1-0 lead. The 18-year-old midfielder has made 13 starts and 17 appearances in his rookie campaign.

Inter Miami (5-13-3) has now gone a club-record 10 straight matches without a victory.

International superstars Lionel Messi, Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba are expected to join the team this month — though Alba’s arrival might be delayed by the the expected birth of his third child.

D.C. United’s Taxiarchis Fountas scored a goal and followed with an assist on Nigel Robertha’s equalizer to help D.C. United earn a 2-2 draw after a scoreless first half.

Robertha’s first goal of the season came in the 77th minute when he used assists from Ruan and Fountas to pull DC United (8-9-6) even.

Inter Miami had taken a 2-1 lead in the 68th minute on an unassisted goal by defender Noah Allen of Pembroke Pines. It was the first goal of the 19-year-old defender’s career. Allen has made eight starts and 15 appearances in two seasons with the club.

Tyler Miller turned away four shots for DC United. Drake Callender had seven saves for Inter Miami, which has allowed a goal in 19 straight matches. It is the longest current run in the league.

DC United improves to 4-1-2 all-time versus Inter Miami, including a 2-1 road win earlier this season.

Inter Miami travels to play St. Louis City on Saturday. DC United travels to play the New England Revolution on Saturday.
