Their 2010 record does not match their reputation, but D.C. United interim coach Ben Olsen still expects a vintage Houston Dynamo performance when the Western Conference underachievers visit RFK Stadium on Saturday night.

The tale of two halves has become a recurring nightmare for the Houston Dynamo.

Houston continued its recent trend of one good and one bad half when it conceded three second-half goals en route to dropping a wild match, 4-3, at Kansas City on Wednesday night.

HOUSTON – Despite hopes for a playoff dwindling to a new low last weekend, Houston Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear is not about to empty his bench for players who have not deserved the opportunity.

The Dynamo face Kansas City on Wednesday night at CommunityAmerica Ballpark before facing D.C. United on Saturday at RFK Stadium.

“You just don’t get to play because we are looking ahead, you have to earn the right to play no matter what sport or what career you are in,” Kinnear said. “So it’s not like we are going to give these guys time, you have to earn that.”

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.

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.
