MLS Game Summary - Philadelphia at Houston



(Saturday, Oct. 20, 2012)

From The Sports Network

Final Score: Houston 3, Philadelphia 1

Houston, TX (Sports Network) - The Houston Dynamo booked a place in the Eastern Conference playoffs on Saturday as the club handed the Philadelphia Union a 3-1 defeat at BBVA Compass Stadium.

Macoumba Kandji got things started for Houston when he won the ball in the attacking third and worked his way into the penalty area before rolling the ball underneath Union goalkeeper Zac MacMath in the fifth minute.

Jack McInerney hauled Philadelphia back to level terms in the 19th minute with a header from a Sheanon Williams cross, while Kandji should have scored again before the break for Houston but fired over the net from six yards.

Brad Davis hit the crossbar in the 66th minute as the Dynamo went in search of the go-ahead goal, but Boniek Garcia put Houston ahead just five minutes later after a nice pass from Brian Ching on the break.

A few minutes later, Davis wrapped up the win from the penalty spot after Will Bruin was brought down by Union defender Carlos Valdes inside the area.

The result not only clinches a playoff spot for Houston, but caps an unbeaten regular season at home, with the club recording an 11-0-6 mark at BBVA.
