Dynamo end season with 2-1 victory over Sounders

Oct 23, 2010 - 11:55 PM HOUSTON (AP) -- Cam Weaver scored less than a minute into the second half, and the Houston Dynamo ended the season with their second straight victory, 2-1 over the Seattle Sounders on Saturday.

Seattle had its five-game winning streak snapped and can finish no higher than the sixth seed in the playoffs. The Sounders (14-10-6, 48 points) will host the first leg of their playoff series.

Houston (9-15-6, 33 points) finished in seventh place in the Western Conference, but missed the playoffs for the first time in its five-year history.

Houston took the lead on Weaver's third goal of the season in the 46th minute. Mike Chabala sent a high cross to Weaver on the right corner of the 6-yard box, and Weaver headed it into the net for the 2-1 lead.

Patrick Ianni just missed tying the score in second-half stoppage time, but his header from in front of the net bounced over the crossbar.

Seattle took the lead in the 12th minute on a goal by James Riley after he got a cross from the right from Nate Jaqua and pounded it into the left net.

Geoff Cameron tied it after getting a go-ahead pass from Brad Davis and taking advantage of the breakaway with a blistering line drive into the lower right net from about 16 yards out on the left in the 27th minute.
