The Houston Dynamo went into Torreón with a 1-0 lead, but left with nothing on Wednesday night. Three goals from the Liga MX club Santos Laguna was more than enough to see them through to the semifinals of the CONCACAF Champions League.
The Dynamo gave up an early penalty kick, got mixed up in the back when Bobby Boswell and Tally Hall lost communication, and left a player unmarked on the far post. These three defensive mistakes all ended up with a Santos goal.
Santos will head to the semifinals against the Seattle Sounders. Houston is eliminated and will have to wait to the next tournament for a CCL crown.
In the post match press conference, Dominic Kinnear talks about the match, Santos' forwards, and sums it up by saying "sometimes you need to play mistake free."
Brad Davis talks about the limited chances the Dynamo had, and how the team kicked themselves in the foot for all three goals. Tally Hall says it's "not our best night" and calls all three goals "preventable."
May be a bit hard to watch, but here is all the video coverage of the Santos loss in once place.
