WASHINGTON, Oct. 4 (UPI) -- Jeff Larentowicz and Bakary Soumare scored in a span of just 2 minutes in the first half Friday, sending Chicago to a 3-0 victory over D.C. United.

The top five teams from each conference make it to the MLS playoffs and Chicago (12-12-7) moved into the No. 5 spot in the East -- a point in front of Philadelphia.


Chicago won for just the second time in seven games.

Larentowicz slipped the ball just inside the right post from a bad angle in the 24th minute after Juan Luis Anangono had beaten two defenders to hit him with a pass.

Soumare scored on a goalmouth scramble, his first tally in MLS. Quincy Amarikawa added a Chicago goal in the 89th minute.

The winless streak for last-place D.C. United was extended to nine games.
