    Houston shuts out Impact

    Will Bruin scored his third goal of the new season and the Houston Dynamo secured a 1-0 win over the Montreal Impact on Saturday night at BBVA Compass Stadium.
    The Dynamo improve to 2-0 on the season and lead the Eastern Conference with six points.

    After scoring two goals in the first 13 minutes in last Saturday's 4-0 win, Bruin delivered the game winner in the 40th minute tonight.

    A throw in from Brad Davis was settled by Corey Ashe before it fell to the feet of Giles Barnes. The English forward laid the ball off to Bruin, who faked left before moving right and driving a shot from 25 yards that deflected off Montreal defender Eric Miller and into the net for a 1-0 lead.

    Bruin is Major League Soccer's leading scorer with three goals.

    Houston created its first chance in the 10th minute as Barnes drove down the endline before playing a ball through the penalty area to Andrew Driver, who drove a low shot that forced a sliding save from Montreal goalkeeper Troy Perkins.

    Montreal pushed for the opening goal and created two chances from forward Andrew Wenger. First, Wenger stayed onside on a ball over the top of the defense from midfield, but David Horst recovered well to prevent Wenger's shot after he raced alone into the area. Then in the 39th minute Wenger took a good feed from Collen Warner and drove a shot from 15 yards that forced a low save from Tally Hall.

    Hall continued his strong night eight minutes after halftime, moving to his right to parry a 25-yard half volley from Patrice Bernier over the crossbar for a corner kick.

    Montreal threatened again on a corner kick in the 62nd minute as the ball fell to the ground six yards from goal, and Wenger drove a low shot that was cleared off the goal line by Kofi Sarkodie.

    Moments later, Hernan Bernardello drove a shot from 30 yards that took a deflection before Hall dove to his left to push it wide.

    The Dynamo came close to adding to their lead in the second half, including two chances for Boniek Garcia, who fired wide of the far post twice, including a sensational half-volley from a difficult angle that narrowly missed the far side of the net.

    Bruin had an opportunity in the 75th minute, driving in behind the Montreal defense and forcing a leg save from Perkins.

    The Dynamo preserved the lead and Tally Hall recorded his 30th career regular season shutout.

    Houston midfielders Servando Carrasco and Brian Ownby entered in the second half for their 2014 debuts.

    FC Dallas beats Dynamo

    FC Dallas scored three unanswered goals in the second half for a 4-1 win over the Houston Dynamo in the Texas Derby on Saturday at BBVA Compass Stadium. After Ricardo Clark's first-half equalizer, Je-Vaughn Watson scored two goals as FC Dallas scored three goals in ten minutes following a red card to Houston defender David Horst.
    The Dynamo (2-2-0; 6 points) visit the New England Revolution next Saturday for the first of three road games before returning to BBVA Compass Stadium on Sunday, April 29 to host the Portland Timbers.

    With the win in the lone 2014 edition of the Texas Derby, FC Dallas retains El Capitan for the second consecutive season after winning the season series between the Texas rivals.

    With the score tied 1-1 in the 60th minute, a Houston turnover led to a challenge near the sideline between Horst and FC Dallas midfielder Fabian Castillo. Horst slid for the challenge and was issued a straight red card by referee Ricardo Salazar.

    It was the first red card in Horst's MLS career.

    FC Dallas took immediate advantage of the extra player on the ensuing free kick as Mauro Diaz served a cross to the back post and Watson's header from eight yards found the net for a 2-1 lead.

    Well before the red card, the Dynamo created several chances in the first half. In the 14th minute, a scrum between the teams led to Davis playing a short pass to Corey Ashe on the left side of the penalty area. Ashe slid a pass to Giles Barnes in the center of the box and Barnes forced a great save from FC Dallas goalkeeper Chris Seitz.

    Six minutes later Davis used a perfect back heel to drop a pass in the path of Clark. The midfielder drove a left-footed shot from 25 yards just wide of the far post.

    Houston created a third chance in the first half in the 29th minute as Bruin settled a header from Clark at midfield and drove forward all the way to the edge of the penalty area before firing a shot directly at Seitz.

    Following Houston's chances, FC Dallas created it own in the 30th minute and drew a penalty. After Castillo's shot was blocked, Mauro Diaz dribbled at the top of the box and drew a foul on Clark and referee Ricardo Salazar awarded a penalty kick to FC Dallas.

    FC Dallas midfielder Michel converted the spot kick for a 1-0 lead.

    Houston responded ten minutes later as Davis drew a foul near the end line and delivered the subsequent free kick into a dangerous spot eight yards from goal where Clark beat his defender and headed past Seitz for a headed goal for the second straight game.

    It was Clark's second goal of the season and also Davis's second assist. The pair also connected on Clark's set piece goal last Saturday at Vancouver.

    It was also Davis' 103rd career regular season assist to surpass Jaime Moreno (102) for fifth on the MLS all-time assist list. Davis is nine assists away from Preki (112) for fourth place.

    It was also Clark's 16th career goal in all competitions with the Dynamo to pass Bobby Boswell for seventh on the club list.

    Davis took a hard tackle from Watson on the play that led to the set piece goal. The Dynamo captain had to exit the game in the 45th minute with an apparent ankle injury.

    After Watson's goal delivered FC Dallas a 2-1 lead, the former Dynamo midfielder was involved in Dallas' third goal of the night. A corner kick was delivered inside the penalty area toward Watson, who was marked by Giles Barnes. The service skipped off Barnes' head and into the net for an own goal and a 3-1 lead for the visitors.

    Watson capped the scoring in the 70th minute. Diaz threaded a pass from midfield in behind the Houston defense and the Jamaican finished inside the far post from 18 yards for Dallas' third goal in ten minutes and a 4-1 win.

    Ten minutes later, Kofi Sarkodie charged into the penalty area and was fouled by Jair Benitez as the Dynamo were awarded a penalty kick.

    Boniek Garcia took the spot kick with a low shot to his left, but Seitz dove and made a strong save to retain the three-goal lead.

    It was just the second win in Houston for FC Dallas, who improved to 2-6-3 all-time in Houston.

    Houston Dynamo Finish Knotted with Portland 1-1

    Will Bruin scored his fourth goal of the season and the Houston Dynamo played to a 1-1 draw with the Portland Timbers on Sunday afternoon at BBVA Compass Stadium.
    The Dynamo (2-4-2; 8 points) visit Chivas USA next Saturday before returning home to begin a three-game home stand on May 7 against the Columbus Crew.

    Dynamo captain Brad Davis returned to the starting lineup after missing three games with a right ankle sprain. The midfielder immediately contributed, providing the service on Houston's opening goal in the 16th minute. Davis received a pass from Corey Ashe near the corner and used his first touch to deliver a perfect cross inside the six-yard box and Bruin rose to head low and into the net for a 1-0 lead.

    Bruin is tied for fourth place in MLS with four goals this season.

    It was Davis' third assist of the season, and his third consecutive game with an assist.

    Davis continued an active first half with his own chance in the 24th minute. The midfielder collected the ball on the right flank and dribbled forward before cutting inside and drilling a low shot from 25 yards. Portland goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts dove to his left to make a save and the rebound fell to Kofi Sarkodie, who fired wide from a tight angle as Ricketts charged.

    The Timbers equalized in the 33rd minute. Kalif Alhassan found space in front of the Houston penalty area and played a pass toward Darlington Nagbe that took a deflection into the path of Gaston Fernandez. The Argentine used one touch for a superb finish into the upper corner from 15 yards for his third goal of the season.

    Five minutes later a long run from Diego Chara produced a scoring chance for Diego Valeri, but his shot from the edge of the penalty area was smothered by Tally Hall.

    The Dynamo created a scoring opportunity three minutes after halftime, as Davis played wide to Boniek Garcia. The Honduran delivered a pinpoint cross from the right flank and Giles Barnes headed wide from eight yards.

    In the 70th minute, Barnes slipped in behind the Houston defense and used a deft touch to settle a long ball from David Horst on the edge of the penalty area. Barnes drove to the endline and slipped a pass to the front of the six-yard box where Ricketts smothered Bruin's shot with a dive to his right.

    A minute later, a Dynamo corner kick eventually cycled to Bruin at the top of the box. The fourth-year forward drove a low shot through traffic that rolled a foot past the far post.

    A long team buildup produced another chance in the 90th minute. Ashe, Garcia and Andrew Driver combined on the left flank, with Driver turning inside the penalty area and sliding a pass across the box to substitute Mark Sherrod, who didn't connect cleanly on his shot moments after entering the match.

    The Dynamo visit Chivas USA on Saturday at 9:30 p.m. CT from the Stub Hub Center in Carson, Calif.

    Dynamo Milestones:

    It was Brad Davis' 318th career regular season game to pass Chris Henderson for 15th on the MLS all-time list.

    It was Tally Hall's 146th career game in all competitions to tie Geoff Cameron for eighth on the club list.

    It was Will Bruin's 35th career goal in all competitions with Houston. He is two goals from tying Brad Davis (37) for second on the club scoring list.

    It was Bruin's 90th career regular season start to pass Eddie Robinson for 12th on the club list.

    It was also Bruin's 115th career game in all competitions with Houston to pass Richard Mulrooney for 15th on the club list.

    Bruin (7,507) played 89 minutes to surpass 7,500 career regular season minutes.

    It was Jermaine Taylor's 80th career game in all competitions to pass Ryan Cochrane for 17th on the club list.

    Giles Barnes scored the winning goal, Tyler Deric made six saves and the Houston Dynamo won in head coach Owen Coyle's debut with a 1-0 triumph over Columbus Crew[​IMG] SC before a sellout crowd at BBVA Compass Stadium in the 2015 season opener on Saturday.
    The Dynamo remain at home[​IMG] to host Orlando City SC on Friday, March 13 at 7 p.m. at BBVA Compass Stadium.

    Saturday's attendance of 22,351 set a record for a Dynamo match at BBVA Compass Stadium, surpassing the previous mark (22,345) set on Oct. 20, 2013 vs. the New York Red Bulls[​IMG].

    After an even first half, Deric kept it scoreless with three important saves early in the second half.

    First, the Houston native came off his line to smother Tony Tchani's shot from the left side of the box.

    Two minutes later, Deric made perhaps his best save[​IMG] of the night, moving to his right before diving back to his left to parry Kei Kamara's strong header away, denying a near goal.

    Then Deric came up big again, diving to his left to stop Kristinn Steindorsson's well-struck volley from nine yards for another vital save.

    The Dynamo struck just a minute later as Kofi Sarkodie beat Waylon Francis on the right edge of the penalty area and slid a pinpoint pass in Barnes' path before the English striker used one touch to hammer a shot over Steve Clark for the winning goal[​IMG].

    Barnes opens the 2015 season with a goal after finishing the 2014 campain with a six goals in his final nine games[​IMG] to win his second straight Dynamo Golden Boot.

    Columbus nearly answered five minutes later as Federico Higuain drilled a shot from 20 yards that crashed off the bottom of the crossbar but didn't cross the goal line[​IMG].

    Dynamo left back DaMarcus Beasley continued to jaunt up the sideline and came close to scoring in the 81st minute as he raced toward the near post and his shot missed the near upper corner.

    Deric and Kamara continued to battle in the 84th minute as the Columbus forward's attempted header forced Deric to bobble a delivery before punching away for a corner kick.

    Kamara came close again in the 90th minute, winning another header that slipped just wide of goal.

    The Dynamo have won four consecutive season openers dating to 2012.

    Houston Dynamo 4, Orlando City SC 0

    Something has to give when an explosive attack meets a stingy defense. On Saturday in Houston, it was the team with the firepower that won. By a large margin, too.

    The Houston Dynamo routed Orlando City at home on Saturday night, posting an impressive 4-0 victory at BBVA Compass Stadium. Mauro Manotas led the way for the Dynamo with a brace and an assist, but the winner came from Alberth Elis in the first half. The Dynamo's other goal-scorer was Romell Quioto.

    LA Galaxy 2, Houston Dynamo 2

    The Houston Dynamo were mere moments away from their first road win of 2017 on Saturday night, but it was not to be.

    A contentious injury-time goal by Romain Alessandrini snatched a last-gasp 2-2 draw for the LA Galaxy at StubHub Center, saving the Californians from what would've been their fourth home loss of the season. Replays suggested that the Frenchman had strayed offside on the play, but after conferring, referee Hilario Grajeda and his officiating crew let the tally stand.
