Don't hold scoreless draw against Dynamo and SKC

Now we wait two weeks, and that's probably a good thing.


Tired Dynamo and Sporting play to stalemate

The Eastern Conference champion will be decided by 90 minutes in Kansas City.


Dynamo goal disallowed controversially

The Houston Dynamo and Sporting Kansas City are tied up at 0-0 late in the first half, but they probably shouldn't be. Dynamo right back Kofi Sarkodie appeared to score their playoff tie's opening goal in the 16th minute, but the assistant referee flagged for offside. It was a tough call at full speed, but it looks like he got it just wrong.


At the time the ball is played in to Sarkodie, his entire body is behind the left foot of Matt Besler. This one should have stood.

Incredibly, Houston's luck got worse just a few minutes later when Ricardo Clark went down with a knee injury. They've gone from being on top to being serious underdogs in swift fashion.
