After an unexpected 1-0 loss to the Vancouver Whitecaps at Empire Field Saturday, the Houston Dynamo were once again left to answer questions about why the club cannot seem to win on the road.

“I don’t think we’re playing great away from home, but we’re playing the game and we’re creating a lot of scoring opportunities,” Houston head coach Dominic Kinnear said after the loss. “I think we deserved more than we got, and I don’t think we should have come out on the wrong end of it, but that’s the game sometimes.”

Tally Hall watches helplessly after Shea Salinas fired in the game-winner.

Shea Salinas played hero on Saturday, scoring an 86th-minute winner as the Vancouver Whitecaps ended the Houston Dynamo’s five-game unbeaten run with a 1-0 victory at Empire Field.

The first half was one defined by missed opportunities, as both teams came agonizingly close but failed to score time after time.
