Update: As clutch as ever, the Dynamo took an early 1-0 lead on DC United in the second leg, setting the stage for a 1-1 tie and a commanding two-goal aggregate win.
The Dynamo are back in the MLS Final, set to play at the star-studded LA Galaxy on Dec. 1.
One Houston sports team is doing its part to keep that Clutch City moniker alive and relevant. The Houston Dynamo stand on the verge of their fourth MLS Cup Final in their short history, taking a two-goal lead over DC United into the second leg of the Eastern Conference Finals at RFK Stadium Sunday afternoon.
The Dynamo simply have to protect that advantage (win, tie or lose by a goal) to advance to the Final, which would likely be a rematch of last year's championship duel with the star-studded LA Galaxy.
