It’s been a month since the first match at BBVA Compass Stadium, but it seems like a lot longer than that. Opening day could not have gone better, from all perspectives, including the win. People often ask me what I remember most about that day. I say that it is the reaction of the fans.  For me, it was rewarding to witness all of the joy the new stadium, and the environment around it, brought to their faces.

Sunday’s 3-1 loss to the Vancouver Whitecaps was a game of swings for the Houston Dynamo.

Firmly behind the eight ball after conceding an early goal and absorbing pressure for the first quarter hour, the visitors put their foot on the gas and spent the next 50-plus minutes in Vancouver's half of the field. Houston, as they've done this year on the road, saw long spells where they dominated possession and put the host’s goal under siege.

With the Houston Dynamo boasting a makeshift defense on the road, the backline sure could have used a little bit of time to get accustomed to the flow of the match.

VANCOUVER, B.C. – A pair of strikes from Darren Mattocks on either side of halftime secured a 3-1 win for the Vancouver Whitecaps over the Houston Dynamo on Sunday afternoon at BC Place.

The home side was in control through most of the game, but it wasn't until Jordan Harvey's late insurance goal that they could be sure of the result.
