Team of the Week: Week 23

With two goals in two games, including a 90th-minute equalizer at New England, Bobby Boswell was named to the MLS Team of the Week for the second time in 2011. He was joined by Brad Davis, who recorded two assists Saturday night at Real Salt Lake to increase his MLS league-leading total to 13. The honor is Davis' sixth of the season, tying Chivas USA midfielder Nick LaBrocca for most selections among MLS players.

With Saturday’s dramatic 3-2 win over Real Salt Lake, the Houston
Dynamo are starting to have the look of a team destined to pull
out clutch results. Whether it’s gutting out a draw at the end of a game or snatching a
goal back at important moments, the Dynamo are starting to play like a
team with the confidence to come away with points.

Speed kills and, for the first time since arriving in Houston since
March 23, Calen Carr showed the Dynamo coaching staff he has plenty of
it over 90 minutes.

The veteran forward played his first full shift in Dynamo orange on
Sunday morning, helping the reserves defeat their Real Salt Lake
counterparts 1-0 a day after Houston’s first team pulled a dramatic
3-2 win over RSL.

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
minutes.

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.
