Owen Coyle’s attacking principles do not fade with distance. The Dynamo head coach wants his team to show the same ambition wherever they play — be it BBVA Compass Stadium or, as on Saturday, 1,500 miles away at the home of the 2014 MLS champions.

As far as gut punches go the Houston Dynamo were served a stiff one Friday night.

In an ugly game where the Dynamo and Orlando City SC looked destined to split a set of drab points, both teams struggled to create momentum going forward. Both defenses looked tough to break down and the passing and finishing were not clicking.

Things changed for the worst for the Dynamo in the 74th minute.

In a game where neither team’s attack had many answers it was a Tyler Deric own goal that gave Orlando City SC their first win in MLS franchise history, downing the Houston Dynamo 1-0 in front of a sell-out crowd at BBVA Compass Stadium.

Ricardo Clark never had any doubt that Kofi Sarkodie would be back in training and ready to face Orlando City SC on Friday night despite the head wound the defender suffered last week.

“Kofi’s a soldier,” Clark told HoustonDynamo.com. “He’s always been that type of guy, putting in the work, pushing through tough times in games and in training. So it’s expected of him. He doesn’t really complain too much.”

Some of the best theater in sports comes from coaches or managers that don’t like each other.

A heated exchange on the benches, a contentious handshake – or lack thereof – draws plenty of eyes and even more commentary.

Orlando City SC will bring a blend of the familiar and the unknown when they face the Dynamo at BBVA Compass Stadium on Friday (6 p.m. CT; TICKETS).

They may be newcomers to MLS, playing only their second game in the league, but the Dynamo met them less than two weeks ago in the Carolina Challenge Cup. The head coaches know each other well. And Orlando’s roster includes a couple of ex-Houston players and one of the most famous names in world soccer, Brazilian midfielder Kaká (above).

Tyler Deric was sure he was going to be cut.

The Homegrown goalkeeper had just finished a trying rookie year in Houston, and was convinced his first season with the Dynamo would be his last as he walked into his 2009 exit interview with then-head coach Dominic Kinnear.

Finally cemented as the No. 1 goalkeeper, Tyler Deric comes up huge against Columbus Crew SC
