MLS Regular Season
Coming into Saturday’s match with D.C. United, the Houston Dynamo stressed organization. It was the only way they would beat the red-hot home team’s attack, they figured.
Despite a well-laid plan, the execution failed at RFK Stadium, and D.C. found the time and opportunities to doom Houston to a 3-2 loss and extend their winless streak to four matches.
Full Match Highlights
The Houston Dynamo fell to D.C. United, 3-2, Saturday night at RFK Stadium. Dynamo striker Will Bruin and United striker Maicon Santos traded braces but Dwayne De Rosario's strike proved to be the difference as the Dynamo fell for the second time in 2012 (2-2-2).
Santos put the home club ahead in the 11th minute after he one-timed a cross from the right corner from strike partner Chris Pontius.
WASHINGTON — It was a battle of braces, but in the end, D.C. United took the honors, topping the Houston Dynamo 3-2 at RFK Stadium.
United’s Maicon Santos and Houston’s Will Bruin each scored two goals, and D.C. talisman Dwayne De Rosario notched his first goal of the season.
The result gives United back-to-back wins in the league for the first time since June 2009. It also runs their current unbeaten streak to seven games, as they retain second place in the Eastern Conference.

Many predicted that Jermaine Taylor would be a important signing when he came to the Houston Dynamo from Jamaica’s St. George’s SC before the 2011 season. Few, however, would have predicted the position where he has had the most success after a year in MLS.
GOAL: Taylor starts off successful attack
