Pinch yourself - it's not a dream! With one game still left to play in the regular season, the Black-and-Red have qualified for the playoffs!
United put in a dominant performance over NYCFC on Saturday. Captain Wayne Rooney scored his 12th goal in just 19 matches, and Luciano Acosta became the first United player since Jaime Moreno in 2008 to tally at least ten goals and ten assists in a regular season. Browse our photos of this weekend's game in this season's new gallery.
After the match, SE celebrations continued at our new post-game spot, All-Purpose Pizza: Capitol Riverfront! In the event that United wins away against Chicago this weekend and earns a home playoff match, All are Welcome to join us at AP after the game.

In the News
It's been a month full of highs and lows for the Black-and-Red. Paul Arriola's emotional return to the District following the death of his father came shortly on the heels of teammate Chris Odoi-Atsem's announcement that he has been diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma.
Arriola was greeted with a standing ovation Saturday by supporters, who also wasted no time letting Odoi-Atsem know that the entire United family is with him.

Another member of the Black-and-Red family, Big Rob, still needs our help! His Go Fund Me is about $3K short of the amount he needs for medical and living expenses as Rob battles leukemia. If you haven't yet donated to this legendary United supporter, or if you have but can spare a bit more, please pitch in!
