MLS Regular Season
Eventually a shot was going to go in for Will Bruin, but that has not made the wait to open his 2012 account any easier.
After three games and five weeks it seemed like the second year forward had found everything but the back of the net. Things changed Sunday night as “The Dancing Bear” hit a well placed shot to beat Chicago Fire goalkeeper Sean Johnson to the near post in the 24th minute, accounting for Houston’s lone tally in the lightning-shortened 1-1 draw.

This weekend, the Dynamo travel to Chicago for an Eastern Conference tilt with the Fire. Historically, the Dynamo have done well at Toyota Park, coming away with a 3-1-2 record and 10 goals scored in six matches.
With starters out, could newcomer take the reins against Chicago?
Sturgis' versatility key for Dynamo
When you begin to carve out a career for yourself in MLS, versatility is a key factor which helps to set you apart from the rest. Houston’s Nathan Sturgis could show just how big an asset that is this weekend, as the club could be without three of its starting midfielders due to injury and suspension.
