It has been more than five weeks since Colin Clark had to worry about preparing for a match. But after bye weeks turned a three-game suspension into what will amount to a month-and-a-half out of action, the Houston Dynamo midfielder is ready to get back into game mode.

You will rarely hear Houston Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear overreact to a performance, good or bad. That was again the case after a rough defensive performance against D.C. United in last Saturday’s 3-2 loss.

D.C. got the better of the Dynamo to record three goals, with two coming in the air, as Houston struggled to contain United’s attack. While it was not the ideal performance, the Dynamo boss stood behind his back four on Monday, proclaiming his confidence that the group will get the job done.

The welcome mat is almost out at BBVA Compass Stadium.

With a number of elected officials and dignitaries in attendance, the Houston Dynamo on Tuesday officially cut the ribbon at their new home, celebrating the completion – or near completion, since there are still minor details to take care of – of a project that took 14 months to build but nearly seven years to complete.

We took a few weeks off providing Power Ranking updates, but now that we are only 11 days from the opening of BBVA Compass Stadium, we wanted to give you an update on where our team stacks up compared to the rest of MLS. The Dynamo are coming off a hard-fought 3-2 loss to D.C. United. The team came-from-behind twice to even the match, but Maicon Santos' 70th-minute goal proved to be the difference. The loss drops Houston to an even 2-2-2 after six consecutive road matches.

Coming into Saturday’s match with D.C. United, the Houston Dynamo stressed organization. It was the only way they would beat the red-hot home team’s attack, they figured.

Despite a well-laid plan, the execution failed at RFK Stadium, and D.C. found the time and opportunities to doom Houston to a 3-2 loss and extend their winless streak to four matches.

The Houston Dynamo fell to D.C. United, 3-2, Saturday night at RFK Stadium. Dynamo striker Will Bruin and United striker Maicon Santos traded braces but Dwayne De Rosario's strike proved to be the difference as the Dynamo fell for the second time in 2012 (2-2-2).

Santos put the home club ahead in the 11th minute after he one-timed a cross from the right corner from strike partner Chris Pontius.
