D.C. United tied with the Montreal Impact on Saturday, but the Black and Red is looking for more than a draw when they face the Houston Dynamo on Thursday.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Boniek Garcia and Giles Barnes scored in the first half and the Houston Dynamo beat D.C. United 2-1 on Sunday to wrap up a playoff spot for the third straight season.
A funny thing happened to D.C. United in its bid for a second postseason appearance. Okay it wasn’t so funny.
United knew the challenge was formidable: win by three or more goals in order to advance.
