Philadelphia Union Vs. Houston Dynamo Live, MLS Cup 2011: Calen Carr Puts Dynamo Back In Front

This one is all Houston Dynamo and the scoreboard reflects it again. They scored first, tallying in the fifth minute, but the Philadelphia Union leveled less than two minutes later. The whole match has been dominated by the Dynamo though, as they control possession, generate chances and put a real scare into a Union crowd that has packed the house. They were once loud and optimistic, but now they're subdued and scared. For good reason too. Not only did Calen Carr find a second for the Dynamo to put them in front 2-1, but it looks much more likely to go 3-1 than level back up at 2-2.

The goal came thanks to a good play by Brian Ching. The striker held the ball up well, as always, then spotted the blazing fast Carr running in behind the defense. A deft little chip found Carr for the easy finish and Houston were up, 2-0.

Philadelphia looks completely out of sorts right now and will need to change things because this one is all Houston. Someone needs to remind the Union that they're at home and should be the aggressors.
