HOUSTON, TEXAS (July 29, 2008) The Houston Dynamo, with goals from Bobby Boswell and Corey Ashe in the second half, defeated Pachuca 2-0 to advance to the finals of SuperLiga 2008.
The Dynamo found the goal for the first time in the 77th minute when defender Bobby Boswell took the ball from forward Dwayne De Rosario, with help from defender Craig Waibel, and drove it past Pachuca goalkeeper Miguel Calero.
The Dynamo offensive effort continued 10 minutes later when Corey Ashe took a pass from Brian Mullan to find the goal.
After the four-minute stoppage time, a mealy ensued as several Pachuca players rushed the Dynamo bench, causing players, coaches, from both teams to get into the mix. Police quickly entered the field and broke up the “discussion” before any physicality occurred.
The Dynamo will have to wait until late Wednesday to find out their opponent in the finals. The New England Revolution face Atlante in the other semi-final game. A Revolution win would have the Dynamo on the road for the final. An Alante win would put the Dynamo at home in Robertson Stadium for the final.
