Video Review: Referee overturns Houston Dynamo penalty kick decision

MLS saw the first ever Video Review in postseason history in the 30th minute of Leg 1 of the Western Conference Semifinal series between the Houston Dynamo and Portland Timbers.

Referee Robert Sibiga used Video Review to overturn a penalty kick he initially awarded for an alleged foul by Portland defender Larrys Mabiala on Houston forward Alberth Elis.Sibiga pointed to the penalty spot before calling for a Video Review and checking the replays himself. The referee opted to overturn his original decision after Video Review, ruling that Mabiala made a clean tackle on Elis in the box.
