MLS Regular Season
The old saying goes “patience is a virtue.”
For the Houston Dynamo’s newest midfielder, Luiz Camargo, that aphorism
certainly applies. The 24-year-old central midfielder has bided his
time since January to make a move to Houston while a number of obstacles
stood in the way. The waiting finally paid off as the Brazilian arrived
in Houston Sunday and is ready to get his MLS career started.
You cannot script it any better than Alex Dixon’s first career goal.
With his team searching for a winner in the dying minutes, the Dynamo
Academy product from Humble, Texas — a suburb north of Houston —
found an improbable winner on the game’s last touch to give his team a
3-2 home victory over Real Salt Lake in front of family and friends
while propelling his team to second place in the Eastern Conference.
Rookie midfielder Alex Dixon, a product of the Houston Dynamo Academy, scored a dramatic game-winning goal with almost the last kick of the game to give the Dynamo a come-from-behind 3-2 win over Real Salt Lake Saturday night at Robertson Stadium. The win boosts the Dynamo into second place in the Eastern Conference.
Home-grown rookie Alex Dixon picked the perfect time to score his first professional goal, tallying deep into stoppage time to give the Houston Dynamo a dramatic 3-2 win over Real Salt Lake on Saturday at Robertson Stadium.
With just four of their last nine games at home, the Houston Dynamo
understand what is riding on every game they play in the friendly
confines of Robertson Stadium.
Currently sitting in fourth place in an Eastern Conference race where
four teams are within three points of each other and with no wins on the road this season, the
opportunity to get points at home is magnified. The Dynamo's next chance comes Saturday against a tough opponent in Real Salt Lake.

All-time series: Houston leads 7-3-5
Houston Dynamo midfielder Adam Moffat has only scored six goals in five
MLS seasons, but No. 6 will likely be featured on highlight reels of
top goals for many years to come.
Moffat's 40-yard blast that opened the scoring in a 2-1 win over the
Portland Timbers last Sunday was hailed by fans as the Goal of the Week
for Week 22 in one of the most lopsided fan ballots of the year.
MoffatMania will have to take the weekend off. Dynamo midfielder Adam Moffat will miss Saturday’s home match against
Real Salt Lake after earning two yellow cards in Wednesday’s 1-1 draw with the
New England Revolution. Moffat earned his first yellow card in the 79th minute
for a reckless challenge on Shalrie Joseph, but confusion surrounded his
the second time in as many road games, the Houston Dynamo used a dramatic late
goal to pull out a result, as defender Bobby Boswell scored in the 90th minute
to give Houston a deserved 1-1 tie with the New England Revolution Wednesday
night. The Dynamo are now unbeaten in their last four games (2-0-2).
