The Dynamo tonight could reach the MLS Cup final for the fifth time in their 12-year history but doing so will require a performance unlike any they've displayed this season

The Seattle Sounders are heading back to MLS Cup, where they will look to defend their title in a finals rematch against Toronto FC.

The Reds, who set an MLS record for points with 69 during the regular season, will host the showcase event at BMO Field on December 9.

The Sounders entered the night carrying a two-goal lead over the Houston Dynamo from the first leg and Víctor Rodríguez put the tie to bed with his goal in the 22nd minute after being played in by Will Bruin.

The Sounders, who took the title from Toronto in a penalty shootout a year ago, lead the Western Conference final 2-0 going into Game 2 in Seattle on Thursday night.

Victor Rodriguez, United States worldwide Clint Dempsey and Will Bruin were on target at CenturyLink Field, where Houston's Tomas Martinez was sent off following a video review for violent conduct. It found Rodriguez unmarked on a diagonal run into the penalty area, and his right-footed shot beat Joe Willis to give Seattle the early advantage.

As Houston's frustration grew, the match threatened to turn ugly and Tomas Martinez was given a red card for shoving the head of Seattle's Jordy Delem as he was lying on the field.
