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.

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
second.

In a weekend of standout goalkeeper performances, the competition was fierce for
the No. 1 goalkeeper spot on this edition of the MLSsoccer.com Team of the Week.
Toronto FC’s Milos Kocic was the ultimate selection, beating out D.C. United’s
Joe Willis and FC Dallas veteran Kevin Hartman.

CONCACAF nations were heavily represented in this week’s best XI, which
includes a former US national-team member, a current one and a forward that
perhaps hopes to make a return.
