Newly acquired forward Cam Weaver – in his first game and on his birthday – set up Stuart Holden for the game’s only goal as the Dynamo took down the conference leaders. Holden jumped into the stands to hug his mother after the goal, making him one of just four players in league history to score game-winning goals against first-place teams in back-to-back games.

Missing two national team stalwarts, the Dynamo stole a road win thanks to an early combination between Kei Kamara and Stuart Holden, with Holden one-timing a goal from a tight angle, and plenty of defending. Pat Onstad made two saves, and Richard Mulrooney headed a shot off the line to preserve the win.
