Sabah scores in 47th minute as Morelia beats Dynamo 1-0 to reach SuperLiga finals

Miguel Sabah scored in the 47th minute, and Monaracas Morelia held on for a 1-0 win over the Houston Dynamo on Thursday night to advance to the SuperLiga finals.

Morelia will face New England, which defeated Puebla 5-3 on a penalty kick after tying 1-1 Wednesday night, in the championship game on either Aug. 24, 25 or 26 at Foxborough, Mass.

Sabah got a forward pass from Rafael Marquez Lugo, chipped it over Houston goalkeeper Tally Hall and into the left goal.

The Dynamo had chances to score at the end of each half, with Cam Weaver hitting a header from the middle box off the far post to end the first half, and Lovel Palmer just missing a shot from 22 yards out on the right past the far post in the second half stoppage time.
