MLS Regular Season
At the end of a 34-game season, three points in September might not seem like much, but after last night's 1-0 victory over Real Salt Lake, Houston Dynamo players and coaches did not understate the importance of the three points on Houston's season. With the win, the Dynamo ended a four-game winless streak and moved back into third place in the Eastern Conference.
“It’s huge," head coach Dominic Kinnear said about last night's win. "With Columbus losing [Wednesday] night, it opens up a little opportunity for us."
In a game that will be characterized for it’s unusual circumstances, it was an unusual hero who came through for the Houston Dynamo in their 1-0 win over Real Salt Lake on Thursday night.

If at first you do not succeed try, try again. That is what the Houston Dynamo did from the penalty spot Thursday night and it turned out in their favor as Colin Clark scored from the spot to give the home side a 1-0 win over Real Salt Lake.
Clark came through in the 94st minute, burying his PK attempt straight down the middle just 16 minutes after teammate Brad Davis had his PK attempt saved by RSL goalkeeper Nick Rimando.
