Will Bruin is good. And he's only getting better.

On Wednesday the Houston Dynamo second-year starter added to his growing repuation by doing what all clutch strikers do when their team needs a boost: score goals.

The first half for the Houston Dynamo against Toronto FC was something out of a horror story.

Undefeated at home, the Dynamo conceded three times to a Toronto squad that had mustered just eight goals in 11 MLS contests coming into the night. Simply put, Houston was getting outworked for second and third balls and produced play that several players characterized as sloppy, prompting a call to arms from head coach Dominic Kinnear at halftime.

His message? “Play better.”

In a midweek thriller, Houston used some late magic from sophomore striker Will Bruin in to save a 3-3 result against Toronto FC and stay undefeated in MLS play at BBVA Compass Stadium.

Bruin got his seventh and eighth goals of the season, leaving it late to pull his team back from a 3-1 hafltime deficit. His home heroics overshadowed a fantastic first half performance from Toronto's Danny Koevermans, who showed what a crafty striker can do by finding space in Houston’s backline and notching a brace of his own.

Wednesday’s match against Toronto FC fits the “trap game” moniker to a tee for the Houston Dynamo.

Coming off a big win in the Texas Derby last Saturday night, everything seems to favor the home team in the midweek matchup. TFC come to Houston with the worst record in MLS and just one win in their last 22 road games dating back to 2011, and new head coach Paul Mariner is still tinkering with a lineup that simply hasn’t worked so far this season.
