On a bumpy pitch in sweltering conditions, Houston lost the first leg of its first ever international series on a deflected shot by Kurt Bernard in stoppage time. In the first half, Pat Onstad left with a calf injury and was replaced by Zach Wells, who soon stopped a penalty kick. Holding on at 0-0, Eddie Robinson was ejected in the 72nd minute following a second yellow card, and Bernard capitalized in stoppage time.
