MLS Game Summary - D.C. United at Chicago



(Saturday, Oct. 27, 2012)

From The Sports Network

Final Score: D.C. United 1, Chicago 1

Bridgeview, IL (Sports Network) - The Eastern Conference playoff picture is set.

D.C. United clinched second place in the East on Saturday, coming from behind to earn a point in a 1-1 draw with the Chicago Fire at Toyota Park.

Patrick Nyarko had put the Fire in front at the 16-minute mark, collecting a pass from Sherjill MacDonald and firing a brilliant shot just inside Bill Hamid's left post from the top of the box.

But United drew level less than five minutes into the second half as Lionard Pajoy's glancing header from Branko Boskovic's delivery found its way past Sean Johnson.

Chicago applied a great deal of pressure on the United net in the closing minutes, but Hamid produced several key saves to deny the home side three points and clinch the number two seed for Ben Olsen's men.

D.C. (17-10-7) will return to the postseason for the first time in five years in a two-legged affair with Red Bull New York. The first leg will be held at Red Bull Arena next weekend.

Chicago (17-11-6) concludes the regular season in fourth place and will host the Houston Dynamo on Wednesday to determine which side will face Sporting Kansas City.
