As the Eastern Conference No. 1 seed, D.C. United Women will play in the second game of the semifinal round on Saturday, July 21 at 6 p.m., as they face the conference’s No. 4 seed, which will be either the Virginia Beach Piranhas or Fredericksburg Impact. D.C. United Women clinched the top spot in the tournament by defeating the Dayton Dutch Lions 4-1 on Saturday night and advancing to 10-0-1 on the season.
