Baggio Husidic scored in first half stoppage time, and Peter Lowry added one in the second half as the Chicago Fire defeated the Houston Dynamo 2-0 at Toyota Park on Saturday night.

The Fire went ahead in stoppage time of the first half when Chicago defender Tim Ward ripped a 22-yard shot at Houston goalkeeper Pat Onstad, who made the save but could not control the rebound. Husidic beat two Houston defenders to the rebound to head the ball in from close range for his first career MLS goal.

In the first 15 minutes of last week’s game against Chivas USA, the
Houston Dynamo had two chances on goal. The first came agonizingly close; the second resulted in a goal.

On both plays, the duo of
Geoff Cameron and Corey Ashe fed perfect passes to each other. It’s a
sign of something for the two friends, who hope their off-the-field
connection continues to translate on the field.

HOUSTON — The Houston Dynamo’s signing of Joseph Ngwenya has
officially hit a snag.

The club confirmed Tuesday that its request for Ngwenya’s
International Transfer Certificate from Turkish club Antalyaspor and the
Turkish Soccer Federation has been rejected, as a result of a dispute between
Antalyaspor and Ngwenya.

“His former club in Turkey has rejected the ITC request at
this time,” Dynamo Chief Operating Officer Chris Canetti said.  “It’s fair to say there is a dispute
between the club and Joe from their past relationship.”

It was one word, shouted down the west sideline at Robertson
Stadium by Dynamo goalkeepers coach Tim Hanley last Saturday, but it meant so
much to so many different people.

The professional debut of 18-year-old Francisco Navas Cobo
in a Dynamo jersey Saturday did not make the official game highlights on and warranted merely a note in most game stories. But it was the
latest in a series of milestones achieved by Dynamo Academy
players, and its significance was not lost on the young man himself.

Saturday at Robertson Stadium, the Houston Dynamo thumped Chivas USA
3-0. The result helped the Dynamo vent some of their frustrations at their
performance last week.

“Guys were [ticked] off about [last
week’s] loss, especially at home, and the team was fired up,” said
Dynamo midfielder Geoff Cameron. “We came off of a loss last week, and
we all know we didn’t play that great, but we rebounded this week, and
we were fired up from the beginning.”

That’s a bit of an understatement. The Dynamo scored two goals in the first 20 minutes and cruised from then on.

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.

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