Yet another late goal from the Dynamo

At this point in the season, it’s no secret: The Houston Dynamo have struggled to win on the road.

Wednesday was yet another interesting chapter in that ongoing tale.
For the first time in 2011, a Houston opponent was red-carded in the run
of play, with Emmanuel Ekpo earning his marching orders in the 11th
minute. With their man advantage, the Dynamo scored the first goal in an
away game for just the second time this season (the other was at Seattle on March 25).

The term “milestone” gets passed around like a collection plate when
it comes to pro sports. Every week it seems as if some player has
reached some new massive number in the stats or some team has surpassed a
previous high. As such, it’s often hard to know what the big deals are
in our game.

Jeff Cunningham reaching career goal No. 134? A big deal. Kevin
Hartman crossing 100 career shutouts on top of an MLS record 169
victories? Huge deal – those might never be surpassed.

The scene was set for the Houston Dynamo to take their first road win of the season. They were up 1-0 coming out of halftime and had played with a man advantage since the 11th minute. But in the second half, for Houston things changed for the worse.

Two second-half penalty kicks by the short-handed Crew’s Andres Mendoza put Columbus ahead late, but Houston’s Calen Carr capped a bizarre game with a goal just minutes from time as the teams played to a 2-2 draw in Crew Stadium on Wednesday.

The Houston Dynamo’s list of distractions is lengthy heading into
Wednesday night’s match against the Columbus Crew (6:30 p.m., KHOU 11.2, FOX Sports Houston, KPRC 950, La Ranchera 850).

With three games in one week, the Houston Dynamo were expecting their
depth to be tested, but certainly not by the circumstances that
currently face the forward corps.

Travel trouble lands Dynamo in Columbus

The Houston Dynamo endured a lengthy day of travel on Sunday, winding up in Columbus rather than Houston after an odyssey of more than 15 hours. Having left the hotel in Kansas City at 8 a.m. CT, the Dynamo did not
get their entire travel party to Columbus - site of Wednesday's match against the Eastern Conference co-leaders, the Crew - until well after midnight ET.
