D.C. United lacks a finishing touch, settles for a costly draw

After all the squandered opportunities, the chances that went sailing into the night and the moments of pure disbelief that stretched from the field to the bench and into the goal-starved crowd at Audi Field, D.C. United walked away with another one-point performance Wednesday.

United (9-12-9) is crawling, not sprinting, toward an MLS playoff berth, barely above the postseason line as the regular season winds down.

With a 1-1 draw against Atlanta, combined with helpful results around the league, ninth-place United has a two-point lead over New York City FC for the Eastern Conference’s last slot. Four other teams are within striking distance.
