HOUSTON, Nov. 2 -- Brian Ching and Brad Davis led Houston to the Western Conference final on Friday night, scoring in overtime after the Dynamo beat FC Dallas, 2-1, in regulation to tie the two-game, total-goals series.

The Dynamo will face the winner of the Kansas City-Chivas USA series.

Stuart Holden and Ching had second-half goals to help Houston win the game, 2-1, tying the series at 2. Dallas won the opener, 1-0, last Saturday. That sent the game into two 15-minute extra periods.

Ching scored in the fifth minute of the first OT off an assist from Joseph Ngwenya. Barely five minutes later, Davis got a free kick from 20 yards out and sailed it over goalkeeper Ray Burse's head.
