Both LA Galaxy and Houston Dynamo used their first legs at home to their advantage, as LA took a 3-0 win and Houston came back in the second half to seal the win 3-1.
Despite an early goal from DC United, Houston took the two-goal advantage in aggregate score in front of a record crowd of 22,101 with goals from Andre Hainault, Will Bruin and Kofi Sarkodie.
In LA, Robbie Keane scored two goals and Mike Magee kept up his playoff hot-streak as the Galaxy took the win in commanding fashion.
With the three-goal advantage, a rematch of last year’s championship between the Galaxy and the Dynamo seems more than likely for the MLS Cup on December 1st.
