Recap: Dynamo 2, D.C. United 1
WASHINGTON – In need of a win to clinch a spot in the MLS Cup Playoffs, the Houston Dynamo took care of business on the final day of the regular season.
D.C. United will be aiming to avoid a history-making campaign when they face a Houston Dynamo side fighting for its playoff life as the Eastern Conference clubs meet Sunday afternoon at RFK Stadium. United need a win to ensure they will not end a season with the fewest victories in MLS history, coming off a 1-0 loss at Sporting Kansas City last week. The Dynamo need a victory if they are to return to the MLS Cup Playoffs after back-to-back MLS Cup Final appearances, after their 3-0 home loss to New York last weekend.

It all began with a win over D.C. United, 240 days and 42 games ago. Another victory over D.C. on Sunday and the Dynamo know that a long campaign will be extended for at least a few days more.
Entering the final weekend of the MLS regular season the Dynamo were aware that to reach the playoffs they would need a result against D.C. (12:30 p.m. CT; NBC) and for one of the three Eastern Conference clubs immediately above them to slip up.
