Philadelphia Union Vs. Houston Dynamo Live, MLS Cup 2011: Carlos Costly Puts Golden Chance Over The Bar

Oh, Carlos Costly. He had the chance to put this match away and blew it. The Houston Dynamo are still holding onto their 2-1 lead over the Philadelphia Union, but it should be 3-1 after Costly found himself alone in front, but managed to put the ball over the bar. Now he can only hope that this one doesn't come back to haunt them.

Will Bruin got free on the left and drove towards the goal. Costly was with him on the right and there was only one Philadelphia Union defender to stop them. Bruin could have had a go at goal, but he was unselfish and played it across the six-yard box to Costly. The cross wasn't hit hard enough and it was a bit behind him so it was hardly perfect from Bruin, but he gave Costly a golden opportunity from five yards to win this match. Instead, Costly hit the ball over the bar and it's still just 2-1.
