Summary

Early goals by Kei Kamara and Ricardo Clark gave the Dynamo a commanding lead, but Chicago equalized with two goals just after halftime. Houston still found a way to get the win, as Corey Ashe was taken down in the box, and Stuart Holden converted the penalty kick in the 83rd minute for the win.

Summary

Trying to sweep the season series from their closest geographic rivals, the Dynamo got a boost when Pat Onstad saved a penalty kick in the 13th minute, but Jeff Cunningham made amends with a long-range blast in the 20th minute that proved decisive. After being taken out of the game, Brad Davis was bizarrely ejected while barefoot on the bench after a Dallas player slid into the Dynamo technical area.

Summary

Still shorthanded due to Gold Cup call-ups and in the midst of seven consecutive road games, Houston earned a 1-1 tie in a tough road venue. Another former Dynamo, Dwayne De Rosario, scored in the first half, but the Dynamo answered in the second with Geoff Cameron’s volleyed pass to set up a Bobby Boswell goal.

Summary

Missing both starting central defenders due to suspension, the Dynamo fell to a controversial road loss to the league’s newest team. Brad Davis gave Houston an early lead, but Mike Chabala’s apparent goal-line clearance was questionably ruled a goal, and former Dynamo Patrick Ianni scored in the second half to give Seattle the win. Erik Ustruck made his MLS debut as a substitute.

Houston saw its five-game win streak snapped and needed a last-minute goal from substitute Brian Ching to pull out a tie. A first-half own goal had given Real Salt Lake the lead, and Brad Davis saw his penalty kick saved in the second half before Ching and Brian Mullan combined on the winner.
