Postseason Update: Seattle Sounders 0 - Houston Dynamo 0

Steve Zakuani.

The playoffs opened up last night in front of a raucous 30,000 + fans at Qwest Field in Seattle last night, but the expansion Sounders went home disappointed as they failed to find the back of the net in their [0-0 draw with the Houston Dynamo](http://web.mlsnet.com/mls/events/mls_cup/2009/news/article.jsp?ymd=20091030&content_id=7579462&vkey=mlscup2009&fext=.jsp).

With the tie, Houston now only has to win at home when the series resumes on November 8th to advance to the Western Conference Finals.

That's all I have for now, but I'll be back soon with a Fire-New England match preview so check back for that.

  • First half was good and good speed. The ref did make some calls I thought he should and look like it was loud there sometimes you couldn't even hear the whisle.

  • i wasnt impressed by either team.. im pretty sure neither will make it to the final.. im thinking LA galaxy vs FIRE for the final!

  • Houston is notorious for fouling and physical play bordering on dirty but if anyone thinks they're rough wait until Sunday when the Revs try to plow through a game 1 result. Houston also got a break on the Jaqua goal late in the game when the referee blew the play dead at midfield as Ljungberg was bowled over.

  • The old man should have got a red card for the charging chest bump. And there were a few other calls that should have been yellows with how he was calling the game.
