The Dynamo have given us some great memories over their six years of existence, often in the form of late dramatics. Robertson Stadium has been an intimidating place for opponents, in part because the Dynamo seem to keep pressing until they pull out a results. In fact, almost 20 percent of Dynamo home games in all competitions
(24 out of 123) have seen Houston either win or tie the game with a goal in the final 15

The old saying goes “patience is a virtue.”

For the Houston Dynamo’s newest midfielder, Luiz Camargo, that aphorism
certainly applies. The 24-year-old central midfielder has bided his
time since January to make a move to Houston while a number of obstacles
stood in the way. The waiting finally paid off as the Brazilian arrived
in Houston Sunday and is ready to get his MLS career started.

You cannot script it any better than Alex Dixon’s first career goal.

With his team searching for a winner in the dying minutes, the Dynamo
Academy product from Humble, Texas — a suburb north of Houston —
found an improbable winner on the game’s last touch to give his team a
3-2 home victory over Real Salt Lake in front of family and friends
while propelling his team to second place in the Eastern Conference.

With just four of their last nine games at home, the Houston Dynamo
understand what is riding on every game they play in the friendly
confines of Robertson Stadium.

Currently sitting in fourth place in an Eastern Conference race where
four teams are within three points of each other and with no wins on the road this season, the
opportunity to get points at home is magnified. The Dynamo's next chance comes Saturday against a tough opponent in Real Salt Lake.

Houston Dynamo midfielder Adam Moffat has only scored six goals in five
MLS seasons, but No. 6 will likely be featured on highlight reels of

Moffat's 40-yard blast that opened the scoring in a 2-1 win over the
Portland Timbers last Sunday was hailed by fans as the Goal of the Week
for Week 22 in one of the most lopsided fan ballots of the year.
