D.C. United eliminated in Eastern semis despite win

Despite losing, 2-1, to host D.C. United in the second leg of the Major League Soccer Eastern Conference semifinals Saturday, the New York Red Bulls advanced to the next round with a 3-2 aggregate-goal margin. A strike by Sean Franklin in the 90th minute provided United with the victory after Peguy Luyindula tied the game for the Red Bulls midway through the second half. United enjoyed the biggest single-season turnaround in MLS history by going 17-9-7 after winning three games in 2013. But after losing, 2-0, in the first leg of the semifinal series against New York, United needed to win by at least the same margin to force extra time to decide the winner. The Red Bulls will play the winner of the New England Revolution-Columbus Crew series.
