The Dynamo were amidst a rarity this week: a three-game schedule that left the team no choice but to use the entire roster and hope to patch together a lineup that could still get the job done against Toronto on Thursday night.

“It’s hard going Saturday-Tuesday-Thursday,” said midfielder Brad Davis prior to Thursday's match. “It’s pretty insane, but we’ll get through it, and it gives other players a chance to get minutes, which is good. Nothing we can do about it; we have to go through it.”

For
the third consecutive year, the Houston Dynamo earned a road point in one of
the toughest venues in Major League Soccer, playing Toronto FC to a 1-1 draw
Thursday night at BMO Field in Toronto on Canada Day. It was the second
straight tie in league play for the Dynamo and the 14th consecutive league home
game unbeaten for Toronto FC. Houston is now 2-1-4 all-time against Toronto.

On Saturday against the Colorado Rapids, Joseph Ngwenya was
handed his first start of the 2010 MLS season, and while the Dynamo forward
played well and converted the game-tying goal, Ngwenya hopes that he can
improve upon his performance.

“I thought I did OK,” Ngwenya said. “It can be better if I can get my fitness
back.”

Coming off of three consecutive losses, the Dynamo were
hoping to turn things around after the World Cup break. Two defensive
mistakes, however, cost Houston a much-needed three points at home on Saturday, as
they tied the Colorado Rapids 2-2 at Robertson

Joseph Ngwenya scored in the 80th minute as the Houston
Dynamo rallied for a 2-2 tie with the Colorado Rapids Saturday night at
Robertson Stadium, with the Dynamo breaking a three-game MLS losing
streak in their first MLS game in three weeks due to the World Cup.

Colorado had only allowed two goals from open play all season, but
Houston netted two from open play in Saturday’s game alone. The Dynamo
also became the first team all season to score against the Rapids in
the final 30 minutes of play with Houston’s 80th-minute goal.
