MLS Regular Season
A slow start and an ill-advised red card doomed the Houston Dynamo in
a crucial matchup against Sporting Kansas City on Saturday and left
head coach Dominic Kinnear with easy answers as to what went wrong in
yet another road loss this season.
Teal Bunbury scored in the ninth minute and Carlo Costly put the Dynamo (8-9-11) in a deeper hole with a red card in the 64th minute of the loss, which dropped Houston to 0-6-8 away from home this season.
Houston Dynamo fell 3-0 to Sporting Kansas City Saturday afternoon, recovering
from a slow start only to see a potential tying shot hit the post and suffer a
second-half red card. Kansas City added two goals with the Dynamo down to 10
players to move five points clear of Houston in the Eastern Conference
Teal Bunbury scored two goals and C.J. Sapong added a third as Sporting Kansas City moved into a tie atop the Eastern Conference with Columbus by virtue of a 3-0 victory against 10-man Houston on Saturday at Livestrong Sporting Park.
The Houston Dynamo are hoping the third time's a charm when they visit Sporting Kansas City on Saturday (3 p.m.; TeleFutura, KPRC 950 AM, La Ranchera 850 AM).
Former third-round draft pick Geoff Cameron has enjoyed a good season
as part of the Dynamo’s midfield attack. On Sunday against Mexico's
Monterrey, however, he showed he can wow just as much – if not more – as
a center back.

Houston Dynamo midfielder Geoff Cameron is raising money for the Fisher House and Ronald McDonald House with his 20 for 20 campaign, which includes a video-game tournament, online donations, and a special ticket package for the Dynamo’s September 17 match, the club announced today.
It has been an up-and-down year for the Houston Dynamo defense, and those inconsistent performances haven't been helped by different lineup combinations. With national team call-ups, injuries, and suspensions, head coach Dominic Kinnear has been forced to use eight different combinations of players on his backline this season.
The Houston Dynamo’s signing of little-known Luiz Camargo last month did not grab much of the transfer-window spotlight, something reserved for the likes of Honduran forward Carlo Costly or Galaxy forward Robbie Keane. Still, the Brazilian could turn out to be a big acquisition as Houston heads into the final stretch of the season.
With the introduction of Jurgen Klinsmann as head coach of the U.S. national team, the excitement around the team ratcheted up more than a few notches.
Fans and certain sections of the media have clamored for the German World Cup winner to take the reins of the U.S. program for years. They hope he can infuse some of the attacking style into the team that he did his native national team when he led them to a third place finish in the 2006 World Cup.
