Philadelphia Union Vs. Houston Dynamo Live, MLS Cup 2011: Jack McInerney Hits The Crossbar

The Philadelphia Union were about three inches away from an equalizer, but that pesky crossbar for in the way. In the 87th minute with the Union still down 2-1 to the Houston Dynamo, Freddy Adu found the ball from 20 yards in search of some way to get his team an equalizer. He did it too, lofting an inch-perfect ball to Jack McInerney. The 19-year-old did well, rising up and heading the ball past the outstretched arm of Tally Hall. The ball looked bound for the net as the game-tying goal. It never made it to the net though. Instead it just clanged off the crossbar.

With a second leg awaiting these two teams in Houston, the Union need to get a goal here. To lose the first leg at home makes advancement near impossible and they almost had that goal they needed to avoid losing...then it clanged off the crossbar.
