MLS Regular Season
It was death by counterattack for the Houston Dynamo on Saturday night, as a 66th-minute lapse led to a Sanna Nyassi goal and the Montreal Impact’s share of the spoils in a 1-1 draw at BBVA Compass Stadium.
Marco Di Vaio, who took over the playmaking duties in the absence of the injured Felipe, played a sublime turn and through ball to Nyassi, who was persistent cleaning up his own rebound to stun the home crowd and erase an early Houston lead off the foot of Dynamo forward Will Bruin.

Central midfield battle again key for Dynamo vs. Montreal
For the second straight weekend, all eyes will be on the battle for the center of the pitch as the Houston Dynamo host the Montreal Impact.
Last week, the pair of Adam Moffat and Ricardo Clark locked down central midfield while helping the Dynamo to a 2-0 victory over the New England Revolution. On Saturday, the task will be putting the clamps on Montreal’s dangerous duo of Felipe Martins and Patrice Bernier as the Dynamo look to continue their home dominance and push to the playoffs (7:30 pm CT).
