The Houston Dynamo crushed Chivas USA 3-0 Saturday
afternoon at Robertson Stadium, getting highlight-reel goals from Geoff
Cameron
and Lovel Palmer in the first half and posting their first
shutout of the year.

The Dynamo improve to 2-1-1 (7 points), the best four-game start in
team history. The previous mark was their 2-2 record (6 points) in
2006. It was Houston’s largest margin of victory in an MLS game since
beating Toronto FC 3-0 on May 30, 2009.

Four games into the season, the Houston Dynamo offense came to life for the first time on Saturday, as goals from Geoff Cameron, Lovel Palmer, and Dominic Oduro gave the Dynamo a 3-0 win over West rivals Chivas USA

Houston exploded early through Cameron and Corey Ashe. In the 12th minute, Ashe found Cameron streaking between the two Chivas central defenders, and Cameron snapped a low one-touch shot past keeper Zach Thornton to give the Dynamo a 1-0 lead.

After the sting of last week’s loss to the Los Angeles Galaxy, Dynamo players were
looking forward to the next game on their schedule. It really didn’t
matter the opponent or the place; they welcomed any opportunity to take out some
of their frustrations at how they played last week

On Saturday against Chivas USA, the Dynamo will have an opportunity to vent a bit at Robertson Stadium.

“It’s a big game coming off a 2-0 loss to LA,” said midfielder Brad Davis. “Guys want to right the ship.”

After the way the Houston Dynamo gifted three points to
the LA Galaxy on Saturday night, it’s hard to find many bright spots. Despite the poor result though, the side took heart in a
couple of developments.

First and foremost was the play of midfielder Lovel Palmer.

“We
have Lovel here for a reason,” said head coach Dominic Kinnear. “I
thought one of the few positives [against the Galaxy] was his play.”
