MLS Regular Season
Head coach Dominic Kinnear
On today’s performance:
There’s testing depth and then there’s what the Houston Dynamo experienced Saturday night.
Down four starters at the beginning of the game due to suspension, international call-ups and injury, Houston was forced to look further down their depth chart with three in-game injuries – two before the 40 minute mark – that pushed players into action that haven’t seen much of it all season.
Federico Higuaín came to the rescue with another penalty kick but the Columbus Crew's home woes continued with a 1-1 tie against the Houston Dynamo on Saturday evening at Crew Stadium.
Higuaín's penalty kick snapped a 294-minute home goalless streak the 69th minute, the Crew's first tally since another Higuaín penalty on April 27 vs. D.C. United.

After missing USMNT match in Ohio, the left back could return vs. Columbus
Second chance for Ashe?
Corey Ashe may play in Ohio this week after all.
After missing a trip to Cleveland for what would have been his first US national team camp with a groin injury, Ashe was back on the training pitch Friday as the Houston Dynamo prepare for a trip to face the Columbus Crew Saturday evening (6:30 p.m. CT, CSN Plus/Mega TV).
The Columbus Crew and Houston Dynamo renew acquaintances when the two Eastern Conference clubs meet for the first time this season at Crew Stadium on Saturday evening. The Crew are coming off an undefeated two-game road swing, following a 2-2 draw in New York, then advanced in the U.S. Open Cup following a midweek victory. The Dynamo ended a two-game losing slide with a 1-1 draw at Sporting KC last weekend, then also advanced in the Open Cup with a midweek home victory.
