Teams are left with only a handful of games to make their cases for a run at MLS Cup and this weekend could be pivotal for United in the Eastern Conference.
Before a small crowd on a rainy night, it could not have been much better on the field for D.C. United in a 2-0 win over Tauro FC to advance to the quarterfinals of the CONCACAF Champions League.
With MLS down to its final month, it would be understandable for DCU to consider the CONCACAF Champions League a nuisance. Instead the club appreciates the position.
After returning D.C. United to the playoff picture this season, the club rewarded former player, now coach Ben Olsen with a multi-year extension.
