MLS Regular Season
A big part of Houston’s 2-1 win over LA on Saturday was the quality service the Dynamo wing players provided to apply pressure to an undersized Galaxy central defense.
There was a look of relief on Andre Hainault’s face in the BBVA Compass Stadium press conference room on Saturday afternoon, and it wasn’t just because the Houston defender was finally out of the 90-plus degree heat.

In a rematch of the 2011 MLS Cup, Houston and LA continued to go in opposite directions in their 2012 campaigns, with the Dynamo fighting for a 2-1 comeback victory against the Galaxy on a steamy Saturday afternoon at BBVA Compass Stadium.
Houston, now undefeated in four, sent LA to their third-consecutive defeat and eighth overall by capitalizing on Mike McGee’s own goal in the 38th minute when Andre Hainault marked his 100th MLS start by heading Brad Davis’ in-swinger into the bottom corner in the 57th minute.
