MLS Regular Season
Alex's second goal for the Houston Dynamo cam at just the right time, scorin a 77th minute winner to clinch a 2-1 win over a 10-man San Jose Earthquakes.
Alex’s goal came at an opportune time as it pulled Houston back ahead in a must-win game. After the returning Boniek García played newcomer Sheanon Williams down the right flank, Alex charged down the middle of the field and punched home the game winner in the 77th minute.

Houston Dynamo midfielder Boniek García looks healthy and ready to pick up where he left off in June
There have been plenty of great moments for Boniek García in Houston, but his most recent Dynamo appearance was one of the very best. The playmaker came off the substitutes’ bench against the New York Red Bulls and contributed a goal and two assists in a 4-2 win.
Owen Coyle and Dominic Kinnear may be inextricably linked these days through their recent coaching moves.
Kinnear left the Houston Dynamo at the end of last season to take over head coaching duties with the San Jose Earthquakes. Coyle followed in Kinnear’s footsteps, taking over in Houston. The two will face off for the third time this season when Kinnear returns to Houston for a Saturday matchup (8 p.m. CT; ROOT SPORTS).
But their connection goes back quite a bit further.
Moving is a headache.
That idea took on a whole new meaning for Sheanon Williams after he found out he was headed to the heat of Houston after being traded from the Philadelphia Union to the Dynamo last month.
Six minutes into Saturday night’s 1-1 draw with Sporting Kansas City, and the Houston Dynamo had already shown how poor they have played at times this season. However, for the balance of the game, the club showed promise, and thanks to some redemption for Ricardo Clark, pulled away from a tense road matchup with a draw.
KANSAS CITY, Kan. – Dom Dwyer continued his long run of scoring form against Houston and helped Sporting Kansas City stay unbeaten at home this season, but Sporting still had to settle for a controversial 1-1 draw against the shorthanded Dynamo on Saturday night.
Dwyer scored in the opening minutes for Sporting (9-4-7) – his sixth straight match with a goal against the Dynamo across all competitions – but Ricardo Clark's equalizer in the 79th minute salvaged a point for Houston (7-8-7).

Giles Barnes was having second thoughts as he stood over the ball in one of the biggest games of his life. The free kick was right on the edge of the penalty box — almost too close to coax a hard-hit ball to sink in time to hit the target. Power or placement? Side of the foot or instep?
Barnes banished the doubts, trusted in his technique and lashed a dipping free kick over the wall and into Brad Guzan’s net, stunning the Americans and helping Jamaica make history.
Leonel Miranda’s love for his family is audible in his words and visible on his body, where the names of his sisters and parents are tattooed alongside motivational phrases in small, ornate lettering.
Everyone needs a support network when they move far from home and the 21-year-old winger relies on his family from Argentina and his girlfriend, Melina, who is with him in Houston.
