Through four games this season the Houston Dynamo defense has been very tight, allowing just two goals. Now the team is looking to put its attack on the same level as their stingy backline.

Houston have struggled to generate goals this spring: Through four games they’ve scored just twice, managing eight shots on target – the lowest amount in the league through the first four weeks. It’s a very small sample size, but it shows Houston’s struggle to turn possession, which they’re happy with, into production.

The Houston Dynamo are a work in progress. Saturday night was another reminder that there’s still a ways for the team to go when it comes to the attack.

Against a Colorado Rapids team that hasn’t scored since late last season, Houston was looking to jumpstart their own attack. Despite the absence of key players due to national team duty, the Dynamo were looking for their remaining attacking options to push the game.
