Despite some late heroics, it was that kind of night for the Houston Dynamo in their 1-0 loss to the New York Red Bulls on Wednesday night.
After giving up an early goal to Kenny Cooper, the Dynamo found themselves searching for an equalizer for the balance of the match. And while they controlled the tempo and put pressure on the home team, they were left empty-handed.
