The men's college soccer season continued last weekend, highlighted by junior Alex Dixon and top-5-ranked North Carolina edging Duke on national TV on Friday night. This week, sophomore Matt Boullt and Tulsa, which is ranked as high as No. 2 in the country, face No. 1 Akron on Friday night on Fox Soccer Channel at 7 p.m. CT.

The
2010 season
marks the first group of college seniors who spent time in the Dynamo
Academy, so college soccer is especially worth watching to see which
players might be drafted or even signed prior to the draft in the
2010-11 offseason.

After the Dynamo's 2-1 home loss to Toronto FC on Saturday night, head coach Dominic Kinnear spoke as frankly as he could about his team's 2010 season.

“The season’s over,” Kinnear said. “The way we’re playing, we are not going to do it. It’s sad to say it, but it is a reality.”

Houston failed to hold on to a halftime lead for the first time all season. Two second-half Dwayne De Rosario goals all but completely distinguished any hope of the Dynamo making the playoffs.

The Houston Dynamo lost their third straight match on Saturday, falling 2-1 to Toronto FC at home on a stoppage-time free kick from former Houston midfielder and current TFC star Dwayne De Rosario.

The Dynamo opened the scoring in the 18th minute when Brad Davis served in a left-footed delivery from a free kick, and Houston captain Brian Ching redirected the ball inside the left post with a header. It was Ching's team-high seventh goal of the season and the team-high seventh assist of the season for Davis, tied for seventh in MLS.

In a must-win game for two teams with dwindling playoff hopes, former Dynamo midfielder Dwayne De Rosario fired off two long-range goals to push Toronto FC past Houston, 2-1, at Robertson Stadium on Saturday. 

Known as a clutch player while at Houston, De Rosario struck Toronto's dramatic winner in stoppage time.  

After De Rosario had drawn a free kick just outside the box following a quick counter attack, teammate Nick LaBrocca rolled the ball out to his captain, who fired a low, seeking effort past Dynamo goalkeeper Pat Onstad.

Houston Dynamo manager Dominic Kinnear makes it
clear that he does not want anyone to read into the Brian Mullan trade earlier this
week and conclude that the club has given up on the 2010 season.

Kinnear has not thrown in the towel just yet. With seven
games remaining, the Dynamo are 10 points off the pace behind the Seattle Sounders for
the eighth and final playoff berth.

The Houston Dynamo not only had to spend the week getting used to being without longtime teammate Brian Mullan, but they also began to get to know a new face in Colin Clark when he joined the team for the weekend on Friday. The Dynamo traded Mullan for another winger with U.S. national team experience, who joins the club from the Colorado Rapids.
