Sunday night kicked off a huge week with three Eastern Conference home matches in seven days and nine points on the line.

Fortunately, it got off to a great start with the 4-0 win over D.C. United in front of 18,871 fans. The team played great. We could not have asked for a better way to start this stretch. It was one of our best performances of the season and it came at a great time. We need to start making up ground on the teams sitting atop the East and we want to build a bigger gap on the teams behind us.

To have success in a lone-forward system, strong play from the wing is a must. On Sunday night, the Houston Dynamo hit the nail on the head.

Must-win. It is a term that gets thrown around a lot and while the Houston Dynamo are not willing to employ it just yet, Sunday’s match against joint Eastern Conference leaders D.C. United certainly carries a sense of urgency.

Just past the halfway point of the season the Dynamo currently sit in fifth place in the Eastern Conference, eight behind D.C., making the match (8 pm CT; Galavision) a chance to start to turn the table in their favor.
