MLS: D.C. United 1, Chicago 1 (tie)

BRIDGEVIEW, Ill., Oct. 27 (UPI) -- Lionard Pajoy scored in the 50th minute Saturday and D.C. United clinched second place in the Eastern Conference with a 1-1 tie against Chicago.

Pajoy's diving header erased a 1-0 deficit and held up for a standings point that enabled United (17-10-7) to finish the regular season on a 5-0-2 run.

The result made sure D.C. would avoid the knockout round in its first playoff appearance since 2007. They will instead now have a week off to prepare to host New York in a first-round playoff series.

The news wasn't as good, however, for the Fire (17-11-7), who fell out of the Top 3 seeds in the East with the draw.

Patrick Nyarko scored on a long-distance blast in the first half for Chicago, which will now host Houston in a one-game play-in battle Wednesday at Toyota Park.
