While the results may not all be filed away in the win column, the Houston Dynamo are a team playing with a lot of confidence, and it was on display in the dying moments of Saturday’s 2-2 draw with the New England Revolution.

At the end of their fourth match in 11 days, Houston were lively well into the final stages of the match. When the outcome was up for grabs, the Dynamo showed resolve, fighting for and getting a point-saving goal late.

Luiz Camargo opened his MLS account in a big way for the Houston Dynamo Saturday night.

With the Dynamo seeking a late equalizer to pull a result out of a match in which they dominated possession, Camargo latched onto a sublime Brian Ching pass and hit a sweetly-struck near-post blast to pull a 2-2 result out in the waning moments at Gillette Stadium against the New England Revolution.

Houston Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear

Thoughts on the match

"We came back twice which is good to see. It's been a tough stretch for us. We played some real good stuff in the first half, and to go down a goal and get one back is good. Then I think we gave up a pretty silly goal, but we fought back hard to get back in the game. All credit to the guys. I think we scored in the 87th, 88th minute so their effort was fantastic tonight."

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Houston midfielder Luiz Camargo scored his first MLS goal in the 87th minute to lift the Dynamo a 2-2 draw with New England at Gillette Stadium.

Camargo's deft one-two with Brian Ching and his tidy finish salvaged a point. It looked like Saër Sène's double either side of a Will Bruin header would give the Revs all three points, but the Brazilian's late intervention ensured each team walked away a share of the spoils.

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.

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.
