A sell-out crowd of more than 18,000 failed to rouse the Colorado Rapids sufficiently as the defending MLS Cup champions played out a goalless draw with the visiting Houston Dynamo Sunday night at Dick's Sporting Goods Park.

Motivation not a problem

The Houston Dynamo can draw motivation from any number of sources these days as they prepare to face the Colorado Rapids on Sunday night (8 p.m., ESPN2, ESPN Deportes).

Can they avenge a stunning home loss to Colorado earlier this season? Can
they finally get their first road win in nine tries this year? And can they simply keep pace with the leaders in the Eastern
Conference, who have pulled away in recent weeks while the Dynamo have

After a tough go of it in his last start, Dynamo rookie Kofi Sarkodie
made his third start of the season in a 2-2 tie against D.C. United
last Saturday and looks to have done well with that opportunity.

As expected, Ecuadorian forward Miler Castillo got his first taste of MLS action in a scrimmage under the hot Texas sun on Wednesday, when he kicked off his trial with the Houston Dynamo.

“I liked it and I had fun,” Castillo told through a translator. “The teammates and the coaches welcomed me well. The only thing for me to add to that is to work hard.”

The 24-year-old
Graye was acquired from the Portland Timbers in December in exchange for a 2014
draft pick. His only appearance for the Dynamo came in a Lamar Hunt U.S. Open
Cup qualifying match in April, and he also appeared in five games in the MLS
Reserve League.

In the 44th minute of Saturday's match against D.C. United, United forward Charlie Davies had a golden opportunity to put D.C. ahead going into halftime. Leftback Daniel Woolard sent a curling ball over the Dynamo backline and found Davies in stride. Davies dove for the ball and put his header on target, but Dynamo goalkeeper Tally Hall made a one-handed stab at the ball to knock it away and keep the game tied. Hall's one-handed save on Davies has been nominated for the MLS Week 15 Save of the Week.

HOUSTON — The Houston Dynamo's hard-fought road point at D.C. United
this past Saturday didn't come without a price. MLS assist leader and
Dynamo talisman Brad Davis left at halftime due to a left groin strain
he suffered last week.

“In training Friday I felt it in the shooting drill and I shut it down
as soon as I felt it,” Davis said Monday. “I went out and went through a
fitness test before the game and it hadn’t gotten any worse.”

However, when Houston came out for the second half they were without their most productive player.
