So that Houston Dynamo lead lasted all of what? A minute and a half? The scoresheet will show two minutes, but it wasn't even that long. Andre Hainault put the Dynamo in front in the fifth minute, but Sebastien Le Toux answered in the seventh minute for the Philadelphia Union. The result is a 1-1 scoreline and a thrilling start to this playoff game that only figures to get better in the next 83 minutes.
Right after the Dynamo's goal, Michael Farfan got the ball in space on the right. He spotted Le Toux streaking down the middle and delivered a perfect pass, right in stride for the Frenchman. Le Toux finished the season on fire and the in-form forward made no mistake with this chance to level for the Union. He calmly slotted the ball past Tally Hall, who had no chance, and Philadelphia was even.
Thus far, we have a high boot that should have been a red and two goals. How about that for a start to the match?
