MONTREAL — Saturday night turned out to be a double whammy for New York City FC.

Not only did City fail to clinch an MLS playoff spot with its 1-1 draw with the Montreal Impact at Stade Saputo, the club was eliminated from the Supporters Shield race as well.

Behind its 2-0 win over Real Salt Lake, Atlanta United (19-5-6, 63) extended its lead to 13 points over third-place NYCFC (14-8-8, 50) in the Eastern Conference with four games left in the regular season.

A win would have propelled NYCFC into the playoffs for the third successive time. Instead, it increased its winless streak to six games.

To make matters worse, City allowed Columbus Crew SC (13-9-8) to crawl within three points as the Ohio side recorded a 2-1 win over the Colorado Rapids.

Rudy Camacho scored an own goal for the hosts to put City on the board in the 17th minute before Micheal Azira leveled the score 10 minutes later on his first MLS goal.

City has struggled to find the net in its past nine goals as it has tallied but nine.

NYCFC will have to wait until Wednesday to clinch a playoff spot as it hosts the Chicago Fire at Yankee Stadium.
