MLS Regular Season
The Houston Dynamo took sole control of second place in the Western Conference on Saturday evening, downing Chivas USA 2-0 at The Home Depot Center. The Dynamo continue to be a thorn in the Red-and-White’s side, extending their unbeaten streak against the Goats to an impressive 11 games.
For a team trying to string together two consecutive complete
performances, Houston suffered major setback in Wednesday’s 1-0 loss to
Dallas after playing so well against Kansas City last weekend.
Watch: FULL MATCH HIGHLIGHTS.
Despite playing a man down for nearly 20 minutes, FC Dallas defeated the Houston Dynamo 1-0 off a Ugo Ihemelu goal to earn its first win of the season and its first-ever win at Houston’s Robertson Stadium on Wednesday night.

Houston Dynamo dominated the Kansas City Wizards for 90 minutes en route to a
3-0 victory at Robertson Stadium Saturday night to move to 3-2-1. Forwards
Luis Landín (one goal, one assist) and Dominic Oduro (two assists) led the way
was the second straight time the Dynamo followed a 2-0 loss with a 3-0 win.
They will try to continue their momentum on Wednesday night, hosting FC Dallas
at Robertson Stadium as part of a stretch in which Houston will play four games
in 13 days.
The Houston Dynamo played nearly two-thirds of the match with a man advantage and cruised to a 3-0 victory over the Kansas City Wizards on Saturday night. Luis Ángel Landín had a goal and an assist, Brian Mullan bagged his first goal of the season, and rookie Sammy Appiah added Houston’s third on his professional debut.
Houston, however, should have been down a goal early when the Wizards’ Kei Kamara went one-on-one with goalkeeper Pat Onstad, but the former Dynamo forward could only hit the side netting.
Dynamo midfielder Geoff Cameron underwent arthroscopic knee
surgery to repair a ruptured PCL on Friday at The Methodist Hospital System.
The surgery, performed by Dr. Kaare Kolstad, was successful,
and Cameron’s recovery period has decreased to 3-4 months before a potential return.
Cameron suffered the injury on a non-contact play in last Saturday’s 2-0 loss
to the Chicago Fire.
