Two first half goals further diminish United's playoff hopes

D.C. United needed to keep on winning to keep their slim 2017 playoff hopes alive, but instead they fell 2-1 to Orlando City on Saturday night at RFK Stadium. United wasted a bright start to the first half, and fell behind by goals from Cyle Larin and Giles Barnes midway through the half.

D.C. United took a shock lead over league leaders Toronto FC in the first half, but had to settle for a 1-1 draw after playing the final 46 minutes with 10 men. Kofi Opare opened the scoring in the 6th minute for United, but Lloyd Sam's sending off before halftime marred that lead.

The hits just keep coming for D.C. United, who added another candidate to their potential worst losses of this dreadful 2017 season tonight against Minnesota United. Facing an MNUFC side sitting 21st out of 22 in MLS, and who entered the match on a 351 scoreless streak, the Black-and-Red contrived to fall to an embarrassing 4-0 defeat against the Loons in the first meeting between the two clubs.

D.C. United Season Review: Kofi Opare

The other young center back gets the recap treatment.

When Jason wrote last year's review on D.C. United's defender Kofi Opare, we were examining a player whose impact in his first season with D.C. was based on CONCACAF Champions League games and Open Cup games. In 2015 however, he managed to work his way into the lineup early, in part because of an injury Steve Birnbaum suffered while playing in a March game against Opare's former team, the LA Galaxy.

D.C. United re-sign Kofi Opare to a multi-year contract

D.C. United are looking towards their future, locking down Kofi Opare to a multi-year contract.

On a day in which he is very likely to start a CCL game, D.C. United announced that they had re-signed center back Kofi Opare to a multi-year contract. After being acquired mid-season last year, Opare has been a staple in the Concacaf Champions League; the trade to acquire Opare for an allocation order spot that the LA Galaxy were never able to use remains one of the most lop-sided trades in recent memory.
