Columbus Crew SC clinch a playoff spot with 2-0 win over D.C. United

Tyler Fisher | The regular season home finale of Columbus Crew SC ended with a spot in the Audi MLS Cup Playoffs after they defeated Eastern Conference foes D.C. United by a score of 2-0. The win gives Columbus eight straight unbeaten matches and sets a new club record of home wins at 12.  The match also saw the return of Artur in the starting lineup.  Columbus had a chance to open the scoring early in the match when midfielder Artur stalked a back post off of a corner kick, but former Crew SC keeper Steve Clark was able to get a fingertip on the ball and put it out of Artur's reach.  Williams scores second goal of season The home team was able to get on the scoreboard when midfielder Federico Higuain whipped in a corner kick ball and found the head of center back  Josh Williams.  While there was speculation of the type of reception Clark would get while back in Columbus, the answer was given when the supporter's section belted out in song "Steve Says Yes," which is a parody of the "Steve Says No" chant the fans would sing when Clark made a save while playing for Crew SC.  The goal from Williams marked his second goal of the season in just as many matches for the Black and Gold.  The first half after the goal became a bore. No good chances were created by either team, and Columbus carried the lead into the halftime.  Artur battles for possession against D.C. United | Photo: D.C.
