Chivas USA were responsible for arguably the biggest result of the weekend when they defeated the Eastern Conference-leading New York Red Bulls on the road. It's no surprise the Goats feature three representatives in the latest edition of the Team of the Week. That matches the number of FC Dallas players, who had a big week with two shutout victories.

The two goal scorers from the Cascadia rivalry made it into the week's Best XI, while Landon Donovan's scoring streak is also recognized among the elections.

Several years may have passed, but the memories of Dwayne De Rosario in
Houston are still fresh in the minds of many Dynamo fans.

A central figure in Houston’s two MLS Cup championships in 2006 and
2007, the Canadian international gets to return to the place he
helped transform into a soccer city when his new club, the New York Red
Bulls, comes to town Saturday night (7:30 p.m.).

A solid defense will take a team a long way in MLS, and the latest
effort from the Houston Dynamo back line was the type of performance
that might turn a few heads.

In a tight scoreless draw at Real Salt Lake this past Saturday, the
Dynamo reassured everyone, including themselves, that they have the
ability to lock down a championship-caliber attack.

For a team suddenly on a slide, going into one of the toughest places to play can seem like the last thing you would want to do. Opportunity, however, has a habit of presenting itself in interesting ways.

The Houston Dynamo head to Rio Tinto Stadium on Saturday to face Real Salt Lake, who are on a league record 28-game home unbeaten streak in MLS play. It's the type of challenge that could get the team back on track after beginning May with two losses.
