Four more Ghanaians and their clubs secure MLS Playoffs berth

The 2016 Major League Soccer (MLS) season for DC United’s Ghanaian trio of Patrick Nyarko, Lloyd Sam and Kofi Opare as well as Montreal Impact’s Dominic Oduro will travel beyond the regular season after clinching their tickets to the Audi 2016 Playoffs.

DC United and Montreal Impact claimed postseason berths despite the latter conceding a late equalizer to draw 2-2 with Toronto FC.

DC United took their destiny in their own hands after defeating New York City 3-1 to book a place in the Playoffs.

Lloyd Sam who played for 76 minutes recorded his ninth and tenth assists of the season, setting a new career-high (10). Sam has now recorded a goal or an assist in his last four consecutive matches. His Ghanaian compatriot, Patrick Nyarko played the entire game for DC.

United extended their undefeated streak to six matches, while only losing twice in their last fifteen outings. They are also unbeaten at home in nine consecutive matches.

Dominic Oduro was in action for 81 minutes when the Impact drew 2-2 with Toronto FC to book their playoff ticket.

Losses by both Philadelphia Union and New England Revolution mean Joshua Yaro and Gershon Koffie will have to wait for the final playoff place in the Eastern Conference on Decision Day, but Philadelphia are favorites with a three-point lead and a hefty advantage in goal differential. (If the two teams were to finish tied on points, they would also have the same number of wins, the first tiebreaker in the standings.)

Emmanuel Boateng played the entire duration for LA Galaxy’s 1-0 victory over Houston Dynamo away. Galaxy have already qualified for the playoffs.

David Accam scored his ninth goal of the 2016 season when Chicago Fire defeated New England revolution by 2-1at home. Accam played for 89 minutes.

Harrison Afful was also on the score sheets for the third time this season when Columbus Crew succumbed to New York Red Bulls by 3-2. Afful played the entire duration for the Crew.
