The Houston Dynamo searched throughout the entire offseason for a quick forward with a nose for score goals. The answer to that search could be Calen Carr, acquired on Wednesday in exchange for Dominic Oduro. The 28-year-old comes to Houston with a reputation for scoring in the crucial moments of a match.

One week into the 2011 season, and the Houston Dynamo are already looking to bounce back from a tough loss. The fifth-minute goal they surrendered to the Philadelphia Union in the season opener last Saturday brought back memories of defensive lapses that plagued the team in 2010.

But despite the setback, those feelings have not permeated the team as the club prepares to head to the Pacific Northwest to take on the Seattle Sounders on Friday (9 p.m. CT, FOX Soccer, FOX Deportes, 950 AM, 850 AM).

It’s a formula that’s all too familiar. An early goal conceded and the inability to capitalize on chances led to the Houston Dynamo’s 1-0 defeat at the hands of the Philadelphia Union Saturday night at Robertson Stadium.

The Union came out attacking from the first kick, pressuring the Dynamo and controlling the early portions of the match. That early pressure was enough to earn the Union an unlikely scoring opportunity through an attacking throw in.

After all the preseason talk and analysis, the Houston Dynamo are ready to turn the page and get down to business in 2011.

A lot has happened since the end of 2010. The club acquired 10 new players, and in the process got younger, and some say faster and more agile. The club also broke ground on a new soccer-specific stadium, which will open in 2012, and is close to completion on their new training facility. Still, questions about how it all went so wrong so quickly in 2010 linger.
