This latest victory for the Boys in Blue was an important one in terms of the postseason.
With four games to spare, Dome Torrent’s side have ensured that they will open up their fourth MLS Playoffs tilt in New York.
The win puts NYCFC on 57 points, which is already the joint-most ever accumulated by the Club in a single season (joint with 2017), meaning any points now gained in the next four will make this the team’s best-ever regular season return.
LAFC’s 1-1 draw with Philadelphia may mean that NYC just run out of time to challenge for the Supporters Shield but the team have certainly put themselves in with a good shot at competing for the East.
Not that Dome or the players will be thinking about that. All season it’s been a case of focusing on the next opponent and that won’t change, with FC Dallas up next on the road and another three points on the table.
