MLS Regular Season
In a rematch of the 2011 MLS Cup, Houston and LA continued to go in opposite directions in their 2012 campaigns, with the Dynamo fighting for a 2-1 comeback victory against the Galaxy on a steamy Saturday afternoon at BBVA Compass Stadium.
Houston, now undefeated in four, sent LA to their third-consecutive defeat and eighth overall by capitalizing on Mike McGee’s own goal in the 38th minute when Andre Hainault marked his 100th MLS start by heading Brad Davis’ in-swinger into the bottom corner in the 57th minute.

At the end of their fourth match in 11 days, Houston were lively well into the final stages of the match. When the outcome was up for grabs, the Dynamo showed resolve, fighting for and getting a point-saving goal late.
WATCH: NE 2, HOU 2
Luiz Camargo opened his MLS account in a big way for the Houston Dynamo Saturday night.
With the Dynamo seeking a late equalizer to pull a result out of a match in which they dominated possession, Camargo latched onto a sublime Brian Ching pass and hit a sweetly-struck near-post blast to pull a 2-2 result out in the waning moments at Gillette Stadium against the New England Revolution.

Thoughts on the match
"We came back twice which is good to see. It's been a tough stretch for us. We played some real good stuff in the first half, and to go down a goal and get one back is good. Then I think we gave up a pretty silly goal, but we fought back hard to get back in the game. All credit to the guys. I think we scored in the 87th, 88th minute so their effort was fantastic tonight."
