SEATTLE — Reigning MLS Player of the Week David Estrada doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. The Seattle revelation opened the scoring in the 23rd minute as the Sounders rode a pair of early goals to a 2-0 win over the Houston Dynamo in front of 38,304 at CenturyLink Field.

Brad Evans added a penalty kick four minutes after Estrada’s tally for the final. The Sounders move to 2-0-0 on the young season, while the Dynamo dropped their first points of the year, falling to 2-1-0 on their season-opening seven-game road trip.

Looking at the standings, the most important number for the Houston Dynamo is the "2" in the win column. Delving into the statistics, however, the same number pops up, but this time it is one the club would like to change: just two goals scored.

Those wins show that the Dynamo are winning with a formula based on playing stingy defense and grinding out results. It's not an unusual combination in Houston, and it's good enough – for now.

HOUSTON – It looks like the Houston Dynamo’s time without their starting left back will be limited to one week.

Corey Ashe sat out last Saturday’s 1-0 win over San Jose due to a hamstring strain he picked up against Chivas USA, but he does not expect that to limit him when Houston travels to Seattle on Friday for a nationally televised game on the NBC Sports Network (9 pm CT).
