The Dynamo play their second of three preseason games in the Carolina Challenge Cup tonight at 3 p.m. CT when they face New York City FC (Watch the live stream at www.HoustonDynamo.com/live).
After two days of training in unusually cold Charleston weather, the team is looking to rebound after a 1-0 defeat to the Charleston Battery in Saturday’s opening game. Tonight's game was moved an hour earlier due to a severe weather warning here in Charleston.
“The training was fantastic yesterday,” Dynamo head coach Owen Coyle said. “The intensity, the application, everything we are looking for. We know we have quality in the team and a terrific group of players. Tonight we play a very good side in New York City, a team that has invested heavily financially with some big names as we know. “
The Dynamo are just nine days from the 2015 season opener – March 7 against Columbus Crew SC at BBVA Compass Stadium – and tonight is the club’s penultimate preseason game.
“The important thing for us tonight is our development and getting ready for the start of the season against Columbus Crew, and for our players to go and show their quality and be very respectful of the opposition,” Coyle added. “The important thing tonight is to day by day get stronger, physically stronger, mentally stronger, and get tighter.
The club traveled from Houston to Charleston on Friday and arrived late, with a short turnaround and a 5 p.m. kickoff the next evening in the opening game of a doubleheader. Coyle conceded that the travel and late arrival may have contributed to the performance in the 1-0 setback against the Battery.
“The lads arrived at midnight (on Friday), so I think we need to cut them a bit of slack in that respect. We want to move the ball quicker, because that’s what I think we’re about, and when you do that, it leads to creating goal scoring chances. We had two or three on Saturday night, probably not as many as you’d like in the game.
Tonight the Dynamo will get their first chance against New York City FC, who along with Orlando City SC enter MLS as expansion clubs in 2015. NYCFC drew Orlando, 1-1, on Friday with NYCFC rookie Kyrie Shelton equalizing after Kaka’s opener for the Lions.
“It will be tough tonight with good opposition, and that’s what’s great, if we can move the ball well against the New York City’s and Orlando’s, that will go well moving into the season. “
"It is preseason and we want to win every game, but the important thing is getting a performance that we think is up to the ability we have in the squad.”
The players have been hitting the field for a little over a month now, and only about two weeks until opening day (TICKETS). We welcome a number of new faces, both on and off the field, and welcome back the players from last year, and those that left for a while but are also back in the fold. We wish all the players that left, as well as Dom, Steve and Tim, the best in their new endeavors (hoping they finish right behind the Dynamo every year).
Just as there are new and familiar faces on the team, there will be both new and familiar Dynamo Charities events and programs in 2015. This year already includes the third edition of the #HouseCHINGBuilt, where Brian and his friends come together to build a house with Habitat for Humanity. A big thank you to Dash players Haley Carter, Tiffany McCarty, Jordan Jackson, Bianca Henninger and Brittany Bock for coming out on Friday and hammering in a few bonus nails on the house. We look forward to having the Houston Dash participate in this project in the upcoming weeks.
We are looking forward to another fantastic BBVA Compass Dynamo Charities Cup and a series of community events leading into the game during Dynamo Charities Week. We want to see you golfing with the teams at the annual Tommy Bahama Island Golf Classic in April. And we will again be including Dash players and Dash events in our programs for 2015.
New events include big plans with Boniek García and other Dynamo and Dash players – stay tuned for details. Maria Duran and her team are working hard behind the scenes to create our best year yet.
Lastly, we at Dynamo Charities have restructured to start the new year as well. A huge thank you to those Board members that have transitioned to the Executive Advisory Council for their past board work and (more importantly) for their commitment to stay connected through the Council. Their dedication and effort are the catalyst for our success.
In addition to the Council, we will again need your help as volunteers and supporters throughout the year to continue to increase and improve our community efforts. It is truly only with your help that we can continue #BuildingaBetterHouston.

Finally, Houston Dash head coach Randy Waldrum joins the show to preview this weekend's Dash tryouts, with players competing for the unique opportunity to make an impact with the Dash in 2015, as the club expects several players to be absent during a portion of the season for the FIFA Women’s World Cup.
