Houston Dynamo dominated the Kansas City Wizards for 90 minutes en route to a
3-0 victory at Robertson Stadium Saturday night to move to 3-2-1. Forwards
Luis Landín (one goal, one assist) and Dominic Oduro (two assists) led the way
was the second straight time the Dynamo followed a 2-0 loss with a 3-0 win.
They will try to continue their momentum on Wednesday night, hosting FC Dallas
at Robertson Stadium as part of a stretch in which Houston will play four games
in 13 days.
The Houston Dynamo played nearly two-thirds of the match with a man advantage and cruised to a 3-0 victory over the Kansas City Wizards on Saturday night. Luis Ángel Landín had a goal and an assist, Brian Mullan bagged his first goal of the season, and rookie Sammy Appiah added Houston’s third on his professional debut.
Houston, however, should have been down a goal early when the Wizards’ Kei Kamara went one-on-one with goalkeeper Pat Onstad, but the former Dynamo forward could only hit the side netting.
Dynamo midfielder Geoff Cameron underwent arthroscopic knee
surgery to repair a ruptured PCL on Friday at The Methodist Hospital System.
The surgery, performed by Dr. Kaare Kolstad, was successful,
and Cameron’s recovery period has decreased to 3-4 months before a potential return.
Cameron suffered the injury on a non-contact play in last Saturday’s 2-0 loss
to the Chicago Fire.

This past weekend marked another milestone in Francisco
Navas Cobo’s soccer career. For the
first time, the 18-year-old packed his bags and traveled with the Dynamo first
team to Chicago
for their league game against the Fire as part of the 18-man gameday roster.
“I was so excited when I found out I was traveling,” Navas
Cobo said. “I immediately went home and
told my family, and they were all very happy for me.”
