HOUSTON — After an April where the Houston Dynamo consistently found ways to rescue draws and put away wins, May has the club trying to revive that killer instinct and, for the first time all month, take home three points.

After draws against Real Salt Lake and the New York Red Bulls, the club is encouraged with their ability to go “toe-to-toe” with the best teams in the league. Heading into another tough match against league-leading LA Galaxy, the Dynamo are looking to build on the positives from recent weeks.

One of the more heated rivalries in recent seasons in the Western Conference begins anew, but this time with a different landscape, as the LA Galaxy play host to the Houston Dynamo at The Home Depot Center. The teams are now in different conferences, the Dynamo moving to the East with expansion clubs Portland and Vancouver joining the league this season. The Galaxy come in off back-to-back wins and unbeaten in four games, while the Dynamo are winless in their last four.

Getting called to a national team is an honor that three Houston

Danny Cruz’s seemingly endless wait to get back on the field looks to be coming to an end.

The energetic midfielder has been out of the Dynamo fold since
aggravating a right knee hyperextension in the April 23 draw against the
Chicago Fire. On Monday morning, Cruz joined his team for a full
training session for the first time since the injury.

Admittedly disappointed with the way his team dropped two points
Saturday night, Houston manager Dominic Kinnear chose to single out the positives.
Aside from allowing the bookend goals by New York, the Dynamo held up well
against one of the league’s most talented attacks, controlling and
creating for their share of the match.

“I think we’re playing well,” Kinnear said. “I’m not trying to make the
sun shine, but I told the guys, ‘Be disappointed; I am.’ We let up late
but, all in all, I really like what I’m seeing from the team.”

Dynamo, Dallas have always been enemies

Looking back at five key games in history of Houston-Dallas rivalry
Dynamo, Dallas: always enemies
HoustonDynamo.com

This article will appear in the May 28, 2011 issue of the Houston Dynamo Gameday Magazine.

From the first whistle of the first game, the Dynamo-Dallas
rivalry has been passionate, on the field and off. Even preseason games have
been heated, including a Brian Mullan-Brek Shea fight in 2009 and Jair Benitez
spitting on Geoff Cameron in February 2011. Traveling supporters – more from Houston than from Dallas,
of course – have added atmosphere to every game.
