A day after announcing a trade for midfielder Adam Moffat, reports
surfaced out of Honduras that the Houston Dynamo are closing in on
another long sought-after target: Honduran international and Olimpia
right winger Oscar Boniek García.

According to Honduran news outlet La Tribuna, the Dynamo have
been in negotiations with Olimpia about García’s services and the
deal rests on the approval of Olimpia president Rafael Ferrari. The Washington Post also reported on Friday that the Dynamo put a discovery claim on García.

Even down to nine men, the Houston Dynamo looked like they could hold off
Sporting Kansas City on Saturday night and hang on to a slim 1-0 win thanks to the heroics of goalkeeper Tally Hall and a determined defensive effort.

It took a deflected strike from Aurelien Collin in the 90th minute to finally broke Houston’s resistance after a stellar night from Hall, who came within minutes of leading his club to an
improbable three points.
