The Houston Dynamo will be looking to end a rare home winless streak when they play host to a Toronto FC side looking to put together back-to-back wins for the first time in nearly a year as the two clubs meet Saturday evening at BBVA Compass Stadium. The Dynamo saw their overall winless streak extended to five games at midweek, dropping a 2-0 decision at the Montréal Impact. Toronto FC put an end to an 11-game league winless run of their own last weekend, with a 2-1 win at D.C. United.

It was a standout performance for Dynamo forward Brian Ownby, as he led the Richmond Kickers to a shutout 4-0 victory over Antigua Barracuda FC on Friday, June 14. Ownby helped the Kickers remain undefeated in USL Pro play with two goals of his own.
With the Kickers already up 1-0, Ownby put the game further out of Antigua's reach in the 56th minute of the match, capitalizing on a deflected ball from an opposing defender (3:25 in the video below). His second goal of the night came about in the 77th minute of the match (4:00 in the video below), giving Richmond a three goal lead. Ownby found the ball because of his fortunate placement and good timing, having only the goalkeeper standing in his way.
The goals were Ownby's second and third of 2013 for Richmond to go alongside four assists on the year.
Richmond's next match is this Saturday, June 22 at 6 p.m. CT against the Vancouver Whitecaps FC Reserves.
