WASHINGTON (AP) - The Houston Dynamo advanced to their second straight MLS Cup final and fourth in seven years, tying D.C. United 1-1 Sunday for a 4-2 aggregate win in the Eastern Conference final.

Boniek Garcia scored in the 33rd minute for the Dynamo, which will play at the Los Angeles Galaxy or Seattle Sounders in the final on Dec. 1. The Galaxy, who beat Houston 1-0 in last year's final, held a 3-0 lead over the Sounders going into Sunday night's second leg of their home-and-home, total-goals series.

Branko Boskovic scored in the 83rd minute for D.C., which has not won the MLS Cup since 2004.
