When Raúl Rodríguez was signed this offseason, the idea was for him to be Houston Dynamo’s stalwart at center back. So, when he was deployed at right back on Sunday, it was a different feel for him and the club, but it came with good results.

Like all MLS clubs, the Houston Dynamo had their eyes on loads of young talent at the adidas MLS Player Combine in January.

But the Dynamo’s gaze extended beyond South Florida during that time.

While scouting draft talent in Fort Lauderdale, new Houston Dynamo head coach Owen Coyle and general manager Matt Jordan were looking at a particular 19-year-old forward playing one thousand miles away.

The Houston Dynamo knew it was time get up, dust themselves off and get a result following a tough-luck midweek loss that stretched their winless streak to four games.

And they did in impressive fashion Sunday evening in a 2-1 victory over Toronto FC, spoiling TFC's homecoming at newly renovated BMO Field and in the process stunning the large home crowd that had waited two months to see their team and new star acquisitions Jozy Altidore and Sebastian Giovinco.

The palpable disappointment in the Houston Dynamo locker room Tuesday night – after their 1-0 home loss to the San Jose Earthquakes at BBVA Compass Stadium – was not only due to the defeat, but also the way they lost.

Dynamo head coach Owen Coyle described the Quakes’ lone goal of the night, an Adam Jahn header on a quick restart, as “soft” and expressed frustration in not being able to translate a dominating possession game into goals – a problem that has plagued Houston on their current two-game losing streak and four-game winless skid.

For nine years Dominic Kinnear prowled the sidelines in Houston. He never wore Dynamo orange – Kinnear opted for white, blue or black shirts while in the technical area – but always pushed his troops in the local colors to play hard.
