Summary

The Galaxy’s David Beckham finally made his first appearance in Houston after two near-misses, but neither team could give the sellout crowd a goal. The Galaxy’s Donovan Ricketts denied Houston with four superb saves, while Geoff Cameron made the Dynamo’s defensive play of the year with an overhead kick to save a goal. Brian Ching was ejected for the second straight MLS game, giving Houston red cards in five consecutive league games and six out of seven.

A 10-man Houston Dynamo sewed up another spot in the MLS Cup Playoffs with a 1-1 tie against the Kansas City Wizards on Sunday afternoon at Robertson Stadium.

Playing a man down for the majority of the match after forward Cam Weaver was ejected early, the Dynamo took a 1-0 lead in the 26th minute on Luis Angel Landín’s first goal of the season, but the added work of playing a man down led to multiple quality scoring chances for the Wizards in the second half.

The Houston Dynamo scored two goals in the opening five minutes, then saw Real Salt Lake come all the way back despite going down a man. But a thunderous goal from Brad Davis gave the Dynamo a 3-2 win at Robertson Stadium.

Brian Ching and Geoff Cameron opened the scoring in the first five minutes, but Kyle Beckerman and Yura Movsisyan leveled the score for RSL as Jamison Olave was sent off in the first half. But Davis -- who set up both previous Dynamo goals -- got the game winner in the 81st minute to give Houston the full three points.

Summary

The Dynamo’s busiest month of the season (eight games) seemed to catch up to them, as Colorado got the game’s only goal on a Julian Baudet header from a corner kick. Houston picked up yet another red card, with Brad Davis being sent off after Colorado’s Pablo Mastroeni avoided a red card for a worse challenge.

Luis Angel Landín made his Houston Dynamo debut as a substitute Sunday night at Robertson Stadium, but his new club still could not figure out a way to beat the Seattle Sounders. Geoff Cameron scored his first goal of the season in the first half, but former Dynamo player Nate Jaqua secured the 1-1 draw for Seattle, which finished the regular season 1-0-1 against Houston. The Sounders also beat the Dynamo in a U.S. Open Cup semifinal last month.

Summary

Early goals by Kei Kamara and Ricardo Clark gave the Dynamo a commanding lead, but Chicago equalized with two goals just after halftime. Houston still found a way to get the win, as Corey Ashe was taken down in the box, and Stuart Holden converted the penalty kick in the 83rd minute for the win.

Summary

Trying to sweep the season series from their closest geographic rivals, the Dynamo got a boost when Pat Onstad saved a penalty kick in the 13th minute, but Jeff Cunningham made amends with a long-range blast in the 20th minute that proved decisive. After being taken out of the game, Brad Davis was bizarrely ejected while barefoot on the bench after a Dallas player slid into the Dynamo technical area.
