HOUSTON (AP) - Adam Moffat and Will Bruin scored for Houston to give the Dynamo a 2-0 win over Sporting Kansas City in the first leg of the Eastern Conference semifinals.
But, both teams recognize that it is only halftime. The second leg is at Wednesday night in Kansas City.
Moffat put the Dynamo, which is the Eastern Conference's fifth seed, ahead 1-0 in the 18th minute, one timing a shot on a bounce off a header from Bruin from 30 yards out just right of the center, inside the near post.
Bruin extended Houston's lead to 2-0 in the 75th minute, getting a cross from Calen Carr in the middle of the box and one-timing it into upper right corner from 10 yards out.
