9th-place Dynamo rally to deny Galaxy a playoff spot
Los Angeles (13-12-9), which controlled its own playoff destiny, missed the postseason for the second straight season after its first home loss since May 30. Atlanta is the only team without a home defeat in that time span.
Houston (10-16-8) hadn’t won on the road in 11 games — with nine losses. It was the Dynamo’s third straight season with a double-digit road winless streak.
Ola Kamara scored twice in three minutes to give Los Angeles a 2-0 lead in the 30th. But Houston rallied in the second half.
Romell Quioto pulled Houston to 2-1 in the 57th by cutting back two defenders and sliding it inside the near post. Manotas tied it on a penalty kick in the 73rd and added another goal five minutes later on a sliding redirection.
