Santos Laguna 3-0 Houston Dynamo: Texans no hurdle as Santos cuises into CCL semis

Santos Laguna brushed aside the Houston Dynamo and a one-goal deficit to move onto the Champions League semifinals.

Santos Laguna had little trouble overturning a one-goal deficit from the first leg of its CONCACAf Champions league quarterfinal clash with the Houston Dynamo, running out as the 3-0 winner in the second leg meeting at the Eastadio Nueva Corona.

Poor defending cost Houston twice in the first half hour. In the 23rd minute, Warren Creavalle hauled down Oribe Peralta in the box. Tally Hall parried Juan Pablo Rodriguez's initial effort, but the midfielder pounced on the rebound to give his side the lead in the game and erase Houston's advantage from the first leg.

Santos Laguna picked up its second just five minutes later. Bobby Boswell looked to shepherd a ball back to Hall, but Herculez Gomez pipped the defender to the ball and poked it into the far post to give his side the aggregate lead.

Marc Crosas finished the Dynamo off in the 77th minute, sneaking in unmarked at the far post to volley home a ball over the top. The ball tipped off Hall's arm, but there was little the Houston keeper could do about the chance.

Santos Laguna will now face the Seattle Sounders in the next round, with the first leg taking place in Seattle in early April.
