Davis gives Houston narrow win

[CONCACAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE] Brad Davis scored in the 89th minute to give the Houston Dynamo a well-deserved 1-0 win over Santos in the first leg of their Concacaf Champions league quarterfinal, but will it be enough next week in Torreon? Santos has won 20 of 21 Concacaf games at home.

Cory Ashe fed Davis, who came on the second half, in the area, and the Dynamo star slotted the ball past Oswaldo Sanchez inside the far post.

In 2009, the Montreal Impact, which was then playing in the USL First Division, took a 2-0 lead to Torreon only to fall, 5-2, in the second leg.

Last year, the Seattle Sounders carried a 2-1 lead into Torreon and got blown out, 6-1.
