The Texas Derby was no contest Friday night as FC Dallas was quick and efficient on their way to a 4-1 win over the Houston Dynamo at BBVA Compass Stadium.

Dallas exploited any space the Dynamo would give them, conceding possession for large stretches and relying on their speed and counterattack to be the difference. Houston struggled to close the gaps and Dallas took advantage early and often and was efficient scoring four goals off six shots. Teammates Mauro Diaz and Fabian Castillo had a goal and two assists each on the night.

It’s a Civil War-era replica cannon, it symbolizes Texas pride and sporting prowess, and the Dynamo want it back.

The quest to return El Capitán to its rightful home in Houston begins on Friday night as FC Dallas visit for the first of three regular-season derbies (7 p.m. CT; TICKETS).

Just before halftime against Sporting Kansas City, Will Bruin produced a familiar scene.

The Houston Dynamo forward flashed to the near post, got his head on a free kick and headed it home. It was his 36th MLS regular-season goal and 42nd in all competitions with the Dynamo.

Getting just his third start this season, Bruin’s 2015-account opener carried some added weight.

Jermaine Taylor stood flummoxed in the mouth of the Houston Dynamo's goal. He was looking at referee Kevin Stott, who was showing him the red card that would give Sporting Kansas City the chance to equalize a wild game.

New conference, same commitment. The Dynamo and Sporting Kansas City lock horns at BBVA Compass Stadium on Saturday (7.30 p.m. CT; TICKETS) in what’s become one of the fiercest matchups in MLS.

It is the first of three meetings between the clubs this season. A rivalry that had its genesis in the teams’ habitual jostling for supremacy in the Eastern Conference has now switched to the Western Conference, where both are among five sides on nine points at this early stage in the campaign.

The Houston Dynamo got a traveling buddy when they were relocated to the Western Conference, and it just so happened to be the club that they’ve had some of their fiercest matches against in recent years.

Sporting Kansas City have brought more intensity out of the Dynamo during the last four seasons. Regular meetings in the playoffs, red cards, villains and heroes have made their clashes must-see TV.
