Sounders bumped from playoffs

Posted: Updated:

HOUSTON - Brian Ching scored six minutes into overtime and the Houston Dynamo advanced to the Western Conference final for the third time in four years with a 1-0 win over the Seattle Sounders yesterday.

The teams dueled to a scoreless tie in the first leg of their two-game semifinal on Oct. 29, setting up the winner-take-all match in Houston.

Fittingly, the league's top two defensive teams during the regular season played 90 more minutes without a goal before Ching's game winner.

The Dynamo advances to the single-game West final to face Los Angeles.

Houston improved to 5-1 at home in the playoffs and 9-1-6 at home this season.
