Six minutes into Saturday night’s 1-1 draw with Sporting Kansas City, and the Houston Dynamo had already shown how poor they have played at times this season. However, for the balance of the game, the club showed promise, and thanks to some redemption for Ricardo Clark, pulled away from a tense road matchup with a draw.

KANSAS CITY, Kan. – Dom Dwyer continued his long run of scoring form against Houston and helped Sporting Kansas City stay unbeaten at home this season, but Sporting still had to settle for a controversial 1-1 draw against the shorthanded Dynamo on Saturday night.

Dwyer scored in the opening minutes for Sporting (9-4-7) – his sixth straight match with a goal against the Dynamo across all competitions – but Ricardo Clark's equalizer in the 79th minute salvaged a point for Houston (7-8-7).

Giles Barnes was having second thoughts as he stood over the ball in one of the biggest games of his life. The free kick was right on the edge of the penalty box — almost too close to coax a hard-hit ball to sink in time to hit the target. Power or placement? Side of the foot or instep?

Barnes banished the doubts, trusted in his technique and lashed a dipping free kick over the wall and into Brad Guzan’s net, stunning the Americans and helping Jamaica make history.

Leonel Miranda’s love for his family is audible in his words and visible on his body, where the names of his sisters and parents are tattooed alongside motivational phrases in small, ornate lettering.

Everyone needs a support network when they move far from home and the 21-year-old winger relies on his family from Argentina and his girlfriend, Melina, who is with him in Houston.

Will Bruin heard it all in the offseason. It was his lot in life to make way for big-dollar arrival of Erick “Cubo” Torres and that his time as a Houston Dynamo starter was coming to a close.

Fast forward eight months and as Torres sat on the bench waiting to play in front of his hometown crowd for the first time, Bruin was doing what he has done often for the club this season; scoring.

Tuesday night marked a soft opening for the Erick “Cubo” Torres era in Houston. After debuting Tuesday in a 26-minute run-out in a U.S. Open Cup loss, Torres is a day away from starting his Dynamo career in earnest with his first MLS game in front of his new hometown fans.

With him still working on his fitness level, Torres is likely to start his Dynamo career watching from the sideline.
