MLS Regular Season
After Saturday’s 1-1 draw with the Montreal Impact, there was a feeling that the Houston Dynamo had lost a bit of their grip on their own playoff destiny.
The match turned the Dynamo into interested observers of the battle between Sporting Kansas City and the Columbus Crew on Sunday. That match, like Houston’s, ended in a 1-1 draw, and the Dynamo exited the weekend having kept their slim, one-point lead for the fifth and final Eastern Conference playoff spot.
In the final part of a 3-part 'Between the Lines' Armchair Analyst Matt Doyle looks at lateral and vertical build-ups, one resulting in a Brad Davis score, the other in a Freddy Adu goal.
Head coach Dominic Kinnear is always looking for ways to keep things loose. He has organized flag football games, bowling matches and trips to a local go-kart track. On Monday, Kinnear went to his bag of tricks one more time and organized an intra-squad softball game after training.
It looks like Will Bruin was doing his best John Olerud impression by donning Calen Carr's head gear.
