Sporting Kansas City to host MLS Cup after defeating the Houston Dynamo

By Adam Serrano

MLS Cup 2013 will be held at Sporting Park after Sporting Kansas City erased an early one goal deficit to defeat the Houston Dynamo 2-1 and advance to the league championship. 

Boniek Garcia put the Dynamo up after just three minutes, but Sporting leveled the score in the 14th minute after C.J. Sapong found the back of the net. In the 63rd minute, Dom Dwyer gave Kansas City the lead for good as he beat Houston 'keeper Tally Hall for the game winner which ends the Dynamo's streak of MLS Cup appearances at two. 

Kansas City heads to the final for the first time since they won their first MLS Cup championship in 2004.
