Every team has that one opponent who always seems to have their number. For the Houston Dynamo, it's the boys from Columbus.

Houston and the Crew met for the 14th time Sunday night and their 2-2 draw – the second time they played to that scoreline this year – was the eighth time in the series' history the teams played to a stalemate. The Dynamo have beaten Columbus just twice all-time.

Brad Davis' left-footed strike in the 19th minute of Sunday's match has been nominated for the AT&T Goal of the Week for Week 24. The Dynamo midfielder received a square pass from Boniek Garcia, took one touch and fired it into the upper left-hand corner of the net past a diving Andy Gruenebaum. The goal was Davis' sixth of the season, which tied a career high that he set in 2003 as a member of the Dallas Burn.

Before Sunday’s match Adam Moffat told close friend and Columbus Crew goalkeeper Andy Gruenebaum that he was going to “‘hit a bomb on you,’ to which the 'keeper replied, ‘I’m waiting for it.’”

Fortunately for the Dynamo, while the Crew goalkeeper was indeed ready, the bounce of the ball finally went their way.
