MLS Regular Season
Lost in Saturday's playoff clinching win over the Philadelphia Union was the fact that the 2012 Houston Dynamo set a team record for points (53) in a season. The win also moved the Dynamo to within one of tying the team record for wins in a season (15), set by the 2007 MLS Cup winning squad.
With Saturday night's 3-1 win over the Philadelphia Union, the Houston Dynamo became the fourth team in Major League Soccer history to complete a season without losing a regular season home match.
“It’s a team achievement 100 percent," Kinnear said when asked about the accomplishment. "These guys are the ones that play, and play hard. I’m lucky and appreciative of all their efforts. I have a very nice job and I also have the best seat in the house watching these guys play.”
