Following his third full shift in seven days, Houston Dynamo defender Jermaine Taylor is showing no signs of slowing down.

The Jamaican international – who was expected to fill a utility role when the season began – has been excellent for the club in regular duty, earning man of the match honors in Tuesday’s scoreless draw with the Portland Timbers three days after putting on a standout performance against D.C. United.

16 May 3:14 pm

Following the Dynamo's 1-0 win over D.C. United in the grand opening of BBVA Compass Stadium, KPRC Local 2 sports director Randy McIlvoy went live with the third edition of Dynamo 360. The show featured footage from the pregame festivities, ingame highlights and postgame celebrations. In addition, Brad Davis, Brian Ching and head coach Dominic Kinnear spoke with Randy on the field.

In a scoreless draw, it’s easy to look at the goals you didn’t score, as focus is often drawn away from the clean sheet and a positive defensive performance.

While the Houston Dynamo were upset that they didn’t grab a goal to seal the victory in their 0-0 draw with the Portland Timbers on Tuesday, they were able to snuff out many of the Timbers attacks with relative ease. Despite giving up nine shots, the Dynamo rarely allowed the visitors to get a clear view on goalkeeper Tally Hall, who made only two saves.

There is a fine line between frustrating and disappointing and the Houston Dynamo walked it on Tuesday night.

In their third game in seven days, Houston dominated their match with the Portland Timbers in almost every aspect except in one particular column: goals scored. The 0-0 draw left the Dynamo frustrated that their efforts did not yield the full share of the spoils, but their play kept the club far from disappointed.

It was a match without many fireworks as the Houston Dynamo and Portland Timbers played to a 0-0 draw at BBVA Compass Stadium on Tuesday night.

Both teams entered the night aiming to build momentum, with Houston looking to start a home winning streak and Portland hunting for their first road result since a 1-1 draw on March 17 against FC Dallas. With neither team able to emerge victorious, Portland got the type of result they were looking for, keeping the Dynamo at bay for a road point even if they were unable to muster a goal for the fourth straight match.

You could not write a better first chapter than the one penned on Saturday afternoon at BBVA Compass Stadium.

Brad Davis, one of two remaining original Houston Dynamo players, provided a moment of poetry in the 67th minute with a sterling strike into the upper 90 to usher in the BBVA Compass era with a 1-0 win over D.C. United. It was the moment many, including his teammates, were hoping for.
