The Houston Dynamo’s path to securing a big win over the Portland Timbers on Sunday night was anything but easy.

Houston took a two-goal lead into halftime after controlling possession
and enjoying the better chances, but the advantage seemed to motivate
Portland after the break. John Spencer’s crew came out with fire and
passion and made their intentions clear early: pressure the Dynamo.

With much of the talk leading up to this week’s Houston Dynamo match against the Portland Timbers centering on the return of former Houston players and coaches, one player that flew under the radar was former Timber Adam Moffat.

Houston Dynamo moved into a tie for third place in the Eastern Conference with
a 2-1 win over the Portland Timbers on Sunday night at Robertson Stadium,
extending the Dynamo’s unbeaten streak to three games. Midfielder Adam Moffat,
acquired from Portland in a July 21 trade, scored a spectacular 40-yard goal to
lead the Dynamo attack.

In a battle of teams just outside the playoff picture, the Houston Dynamo made two first-half goals stand in a 2-1 home win over the Portland Timbers on Sunday night at Robertson Stadium to move into playoff position.

Trades are a big part of the professional sports landscape. Players move between teams and inevitably those players traded want to show their former clubs what they are made of whenever they get a chance.

Lovel Palmer and Mike Chabala were traded away from the Houston Dynamo on July 21 to Sunday’s visitors, the Portland Timbers. Under the leadership of former Dynamo assistant coach John Spencer, Houston are expecting a motivated performance from the trio this weekend (8 p.m. CT, Galavisión, Get your tickets).

The emotions of Portland Timbers players Mike Chabala and Lovel Palmer, along with head coach John Spencer, will undoubtedly be high when they travel to Houston this weekend to face their former team.

The Timbers will play at Robertson Stadium for the first time on Sunday (8 p.m. CT, Get your tickets), reuniting the two players who were acquired in a trade less than a month ago and Spencer, who spent four years there as an assistant coach, with their former mates.

The last
two weeks have been very good to the Houston Dynamo, as they took four points
out of six in matches against the Seattle Sounders and the Philadelphia Union.
A large part of Houston’s
recent success has been the play of Geoff Cameron, who is starting to put his
fingerprints on the Dynamo attack.
