The injury to Brad Davis was supposed to be the end of the Houston Dynamo's biggest advantage over Sporting Kansas City, set pieces. Apparently, someone forgot to tell the Dynamo that because they've just gone in front of Sporting Kansas City on a free kick thanks to a finish by Andre Hainault. Now they hold a 1-0 lead in the 53rd minute and if they can hold on, will move onto the MLS Cup final.
Because Davis was out, Adam Moffatt took the free kick and he hit a good one. It went all the way to the back post where Jermaine Taylor was waiting to head it on frame. Tally Hall made the save on Taylor's attempt, but the rebound fell right in front of the net where Hainault was waiting to knock home the go-ahead goal. If the Dynamo can hold on now, it will be the game-winning goal and the one that sends them to MLS Cup.
