There were some surprises when the Houston Dynamo lineup was released for Saturday’s game against D.C. United.

HOUSTON — The Houston Dynamo's hard-fought road point at D.C. United
this past Saturday didn't come without a price. MLS assist leader and
Dynamo talisman Brad Davis left at halftime due to a left groin strain
he suffered last week.

“In training Friday I felt it in the shooting drill and I shut it down
as soon as I felt it,” Davis said Monday. “I went out and went through a
fitness test before the game and it hadn’t gotten any worse.”

However, when Houston came out for the second half they were without their most productive player.

Houston Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear showed versatility in his
tactics on Saturday night, switching to a formation with three in the
back and three forwards in an attempt to find a late equalizer against
D.C. United. Kinnear is known for running a 4-4-2 formation — the
standard tactical set-up in MLS — but has shown in the past he is willing
to change things up.

Conference rival.

Brian Ching’s 89th-minute goal earned the Houston Dynamo a 2-2 draw against D.C. United and a valuable road point at RFK Stadium on Saturday. The forward’s tally canceled out goals from DC’s Charlie Davies and Chris Pontius, which sandwiched a Brad Davis first-half penalty kick.
