MLS Regular Season
HOUSTON – A congested schedule looks to have finally caught up with the Houston Dynamo.
On their fourth match in less than two weeks, the Dynamo fell to an aggressive Montreal Impact team energized by a good crowd and a new stadium. Coming out of halftime level at 2-2, the Dynamo were unable to match the home team’s energy and emotion. Houston did not have the legs as Montreal outshot the visitors 8-0 in the second 45 minutes and scored two decisive goals.
MONTREAL – So far, so good at Stade Saputo.
The Montreal Impact have now scored eight goals in two games at their new home thanks to an entertaining 4-2 win over the Houston Dynamo. Montreal’s Sanna Nyassi and Davy Arnaud, and Houston’s Brad Davis and Will Bruin traded goals in a frantic first half before Hassoun Camara and Patrice Bernier closed the deal for the Impact.
Coming off a wild 3-3 draw at BBVA Compass Stadium, the Houston Dynamo will head to Canada for the second time in as many weeks for a matchup with the Montreal Impact. The expansion club has had its rough patches through the early portion of the season, but rebounded well last Saturday with a 4-1 thumping of the Seattle Sounders in the grand opening of the recently renovated Saputo Stadium.

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.”
