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.
Lack of communication. Lack of focus. Lack of defense. Lack of offense. Sometimes when it rains, it pours. And it's monsoon season in D.C. right now.
Game in a nutshell: Houston jumped out to an early lead at RFK, scoring twice in the first 28 minutes on defensive breakdowns.
