The first half of this MLS Cup playoff contest was all Houston Dynamo. They completely dominated and left the Philadelphia Union in their wake. The Dynamo were shortchanged in only being up 2-1 because they deserved more, but that was all they got. The start of the second half was a little bit more even, but ever since the hour mark, this one has been all Union. They've finally got something going and now look like they could actually get a goal or two here.
The first big change was getting some width from Justin Mapp, who was able to find space and cross the ball into the box. It created chances and Danny Mwanga did poorly on one chance not to hit the frame. The next changes were the substitutions of Jack McInerney and Roger Torres. Both added a spark to the midfield and since then it's been all Union. They're just throwing waves at the Dynamo, who are struggling to hold on now.
