CARSON, Calif. (AP) Gregg Berhalter and Landon Donovan scored in overtime to put the Los Angeles Galaxy into the MLS Cup final with a 2-0 victory over the Houston Dynamo on Friday night.
The Galaxy will play in their first MLS Cup final since 2005 on Nov. 22 in Seattle against the winner of Saturday's Eastern Conference final match between Chicago and Real Salt Lake.
David Beckham's free kick set up Berhalter's goal in the 102nd minute. The Dynamo's Eddie Robinson tried to clear Omar Gonzalez's header off Beckham's free kick but Berhalter poked the ball into the net from 7 yards.
