It perhaps took a little longer than expected, but United eventually got two late goals - one from Christian Gomez and another from Ange N'Silu - to defeat the visiting Ocean City Barons Tuesday night. By virtue of the win, D.C. advances to face the Harrisburg City Islanders, who beat the New England Revolution 2-1. The quarterfinal game will take place next Tuesday, July 7, at the Maryland SoccerPlex. Tickets go on sale tomorrow morning at 10 a.m. ET.
