The Union will host the Houston Dynamo on Sunday in its first-ever Major League Soccer playoff appearance.
It was an embarrassing loss. One embarrassing loss. Of course the timing was terrible and everyone, players, coaches and fans, would have preferred a different result and performance, but in the end it was one game. Against a team that at its best, which it was on Thursday night, is one of the most dangerous in MLS.
According to a release from the Union, the game will kick off at 4 p.m. and be televised on ESPN2, ESPN3.com and ESPN Deportes. The return leg in Houston will be played on Thursday, November 3 at 8:30 p.m. It will also be broadcast on ESPN2, ESPN3.com and ESPN Deportes.
