Three unanswered second-half goals gave the Houston Dynamo a 3-1 win over D.C. United on Sunday in the first leg of the Eastern Conference finals.
What’s next? That has to be the question D.C. United and it supporters or asking after the Black and Red navigated through two games, two red cards, one hurricane, and one snow storm to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals against the Houston Dynamo.
In a high intensity match, Nick DeLeon scored the game’s first and only goal in the 88th minute sending D.C. United to the Eastern Conference Final for the first time since 2006.
There are curtain calls with hat tips, salutes from the ice with sticks pointed to the rafters and Lambeau Leaps, and then there is the manner in which D.C. United players showed love to their fans Thursday night after a match that never even kicked off.
