With its playoff clock ticking, D.C. United gets key draw at Charlotte

CHARLOTTE — D.C. United is running out of time to earn the points it needs to secure an MLS playoff berth — and it has less time than the league’s 28 other teams. That’s why, in United’s quest for its first postseason berth in four years, its 0-0 draw with Charlotte FC on Saturday night was a small but valuable prize.

United (9-12-8) extended its unbeaten and shutout streaks to three before an announced 36,101 at Bank of America Stadium. Alex Bono, who inherited the goalkeeping job when Tyler Miller was hurt last month, has not conceded a goal in four starts this year.
