Houston Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear declared the team’s season over after a 2-1 home loss to Toronto FC on September 18. The team was eliminated from postseason contention soon afterward, but that may have also proven eerily prophetic for Dynamo forward Brian Ching.

For the seventh time this season, the Houston Dynamo were unable to
string together two consecutive victories in MLS play as they tied the
Philadelphia Union 1-1 on Saturday afternoon.

Despite the draw, Houston continued
to build upon its improved play over the last several matches. In games past, Houston’s defense crumbled as
it conceded late winners, but against United last weekend and the Union on Saturday, it was the Dynamo
controlling the play in the second half.

Despite being mathematically eliminated from the MLS postseason after Seattle’s 3-2 victory over Toronto FC earlier on Saturday afternoon, the Philadelphia Union battled to a hard-fought 1-1 draw at PPL Park against a Houston Dynamo side that had already been eliminated from playoff contention.

Houston Dynamo earned a road result for the second consecutive game, playing to
a 1-1 tie with the Philadelphia Union Saturday afternoon at PPL Park just south
of Philadelphia. The tie came despite 13 corner kicks for Houston – 10 in the
second half – and a 15-7 Dynamo shot advantage.

going 1-0-1 in their last two road games, including a 3-1 win over D.C. United
last Saturday, the Dynamo will return home to host the New England Revolution
on Sunday, October 10, at Robertson Stadium.

The Houston Dynamo aren’t playing for revenge on Saturday against the Philadelphia Union. They’re playing for pride.

“It’s not revenge for one game, it's revenge for the entire year,” midfielder Brad Davis. “We’re playing for pride and our jobs and a spot on the team next year and to show that the year is not a complete wash."

Onstad to return?

Houston goalkeeper Pat Onstad appears to be making a late push this week to get healthy and is hopeful to be available for the team’s match Saturday against Philadelphia at PPL Park.

Onstad participated fully in practice on Friday for the first time this week. While the veteran is still recovering from the concussion he suffered after colliding with the elbow of defender Andrew Hainault last weekend, Onstad also admitted he has a painful thumb injury that has been hindering him.
