Week 34 of the 2022 Major League Soccer season began with Decision Day for the Eastern Conference and NYCFC winning 2-1 at Atlanta United. Gabriel Pereira put New York up in the 9th minute with Heber doubling the lead in the 60th. Andrew Gutman pulled a goal back for Atlanta in the 67th minute.

Chicago and New England drew 1-1 at Soldier Field. Dylan Borrero put the Revs up in the 88th and Alex Monis equalized for the Fire two minutes into stoppage time. The Revolution finished 10th with Chicago in 12th-place.
“Well, that was the story of our season right there, that game,” New England coach Bruce Arena said. “To walk off the field without three points is a crime. We had to work hard, not to say that we were the dominant team in the game, but we got the goal that made a difference, and that we can’t defend the throw-in at the end of the game is just ridiculous really, so that’s there’s been probably five or six games similar to that this year and that’s why we’re not in the playoffs.”
FC Cincinnati beat DC United 5-2 at Audi Field. Luciano Acosta scored for Cincinnati in the 6th with Brenner making it 3-0 with goals in the 8th and 24th minutes.

“Yeah, it’s a neat moment for the group, for the players, the staff,” Cincinnati coach Pat Noonan said. “Certainly, everybody that’s involved in the club and the fan base, this was a special day. We’re going to try to enjoy the heck out of it because these players, and staff, have worked so hard to get to this point.”
Montreal won 3-1 at Inter Miami. Djordje Mihailovic scored for Montreal in the 5th, Lassi Lappalainen made it 2-0 in the 8th, and Kei Kamara added a goal in the 36th. An own-goal put Miami on the board in the 85th minute. Montreal finished 2nd and Inter Miami 6th.
