Thanks to a Brian Ching header late, the Houston Dynamo were able to breathe a collective sigh of relief after struggling to hold on to two separate two-goal leads against the Chicago Fire on Saturday night.

“We haven’t played with the lead for a while, and we let our guard down,” said head coach Dominic Kinnear. “We started being sloppy, and they were throwing a lot of guys forward as well.”

Sometimes, when a club is struggling, it needs a veteran to lift it onto his shoulders, if just for one night.

On Saturday night at Robertson Stadium, Brian Ching did just that, willing the Houston Dynamo to their first win in almost three months by holding off a resilient Chicago Fire, 4-3.

“It was a good performance,” Ching said. “It got a little scary there when they equalized 3-3, but we stuck to it, we battled, and we grinded one out today.”
