The Dynamo are boosted by the return of Giles Barnes and Jermaine Taylor from the Copa America as Owen Coyle’s side heads north to Frisco for a Friday night Texas derby.

Jamaica exited the Copa at the group stage but the underdogs performed creditably, losing to Uruguay, Paraguay and Argentina by a score of 1-0 each time.

As you all know, it is derby week. Your Houston Dynamo will travel north to face FC Dallas on Friday, June 26. No doubt, the men in Orange will be looking for a bit of revenge after the first meeting between the two sides on May 1.

The penalty was placed beyond the goalkeeper’s desperate dive with the left-footed precision that would become a hallmark of Brad Davis’s career.

Set pieces have become one of the Houston Dynamo’s calling cards in 2015. Saturday night in Portland they betrayed the Dynamo in a 2-0 loss.

Three set pieces were the story at Providence Park, as Houston fell prey to the Timbers twice from dead balls, first when Maximiliano Urruti scored a perfectly placed looping header and then when David Horst conceded a penalty kick for a foul on a set piece play in the second half, which Gaston Fernandez converted.

PORTLAND, Ore. – The Portland Timbers’ spring resurgence will roll right into summer after the Argentine pair of Maximiliano Urruti and Gaston Fernandez found goals in their 2-0 victory over the Houston Dynamo on Saturday night at Providence Park.

It’s Portland’s fourth straight MLS victory and fifth overall, following their US Open Cup win Wednesday over rival Seattle Sounders, pushing them into third place in the Western Conference with 25 points from 16 games.

The Houston Dynamo made no mistake that they were looking to “evolve” in 2015 with new management in charge.

Part of putting that plan in motion was bringing in Spanish center back Raúl Rodríguez, someone who was good on the ball in addition to being good defensively. And Rodriguez was penned into the starting lineup the moment he signed up.
