Hello, next round! Dynamo defeat Sporting KC 1-0 in knockout round to advance

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Much like the Astros on Wednesday, the Houston Dynamo needed extra time to fend off Sporting Kansas City in their knockout round playoff game Thursday night.

Forward Alberth Elis scored the go-ahead goal for the Dynamo in the 94th minute, capitalizing on an assist from Vicente Sanchez. The Dynamo defeated SKC, 1-0, to advance to the next round.

With the victory, Houston will host the top seed Portland Timbers in the first of two legs in the Western Conference Semifinals on Monday.

Tickets for the game can be purchased through the Dynamo's website.

The second leg of the semis is scheduled for Sunday, Nov. 5 in Portland. The winner will be decided by aggregate goals between the two legs, with road goals weighing heavier in the decision.
