After Colin Clark was sent off early in the second half, Brian Ching was also sent off in the 70th minute for a challenge on Aurelien Collin. Ching and Collin battled on the sideline before Ching drove the ball into Sporting KC’s box. Colling muscled Ching off of the ball and Ching responded by kicking out Collin’s legs from under him.
It was a harsh challenge and Ching at the very least should have received a yellow card, but a decent case can be made for the red card.
Houston now will be forced to finish off the remaining 20 minutes of the game with 9 men.
