The Houston Dynamo needed a second-half rally, but eventually found the form they needed to take all three points and secure their place in the Eastern Conference playoffs.
Goals from Oscar Boniek Garcia and Brad Davis in the final 20 minutes helped the Dynamo register a 3-1 victory against the Philadelphia Union at BBVA Compass Stadium on Saturday night.
Macoumba Kandji opened the scoring in the fifth minute, but Jack McInerney continued his recent hot streak with a header goal in the 19th minute to tie things up for the Union.
The sides battled for much of the match, with the Union struggling to generate chances as the Houston midfield controlled possession. The Dynamo generated chances but didn’t break through until the 70th minute, when Garcia blasted a 20-yard shot past MacMath to make the score 2-1.
Just three minutes later, a questionable penalty call set up the Dynamo’s third goal when Carlos Valdes was whistled for a foul on Will Bruin in the penalty area. Brad Davis converted the spot kick to seal the victory.
