The Houston Dynamo have not lost back-to-back games all year, and they
did not want Sunday night to be the first time against the high-powered
Chicago Fire. After suffering a deflating 3-0 loss at New York last weekend, the
Dynamo entered Sunday's match more than ready to show that their recent
surge to the top of the Western Conference was no fluke. Thanks to a well-balanced attack from the midfield and forward
positions, and good goalkeeping from Pat Onstad, the Dynamo did just
enough to beat the Fire, 2-1, at Robertson Stadium.
In what turned out to be a harbinger of things to come, the Dynamo struggled on artificial turf in a 3-0 road loss that slowed their momentum.
