October 20, 2007 -- The Home Depot Center, Carson, Calif.
The Dynamo earned their first win in Utah in four tries on a fluky Stuart Holden goal. Scoreless in the 66th minute, Holden was the beneficiary when Salt Lake goalkeeper Nick Rimando failed to handle a routine cross from the right. Houston’s Eddie Robinson and Salt Lake’s Yura Movsisyan were ejected in separate second-half incidents, but the Dynamo held on for the win.
A sellout crowd showed up hoping to see Galaxy star David Beckham, but he missed the trip due to injury. Los Angeles still earned the win, rallying from an early Nate Jaqua goal with tallies from Carlos Pavon and Gavin Glinton.
LA Galaxy (8-13-6) vs. Houston Dynamo (14-8-6)
October 7, 2007 -- Robertson Stadium, Houston TX
Houston dominated every aspect of the game, whitewashing Dallas for the third time in four matches in 2007. Goals from Dwayne De Rosario in the first half and both Eddie Robinson and Stuart Holden in the second half provided the margin of victory, but the most memorable moment of the game came when Ricardo Clark retaliated against Dynamo antagonist Carlos Ruiz with a kick to the chest late in the game. Ruiz and Clark were both ejected, but Clark was later suspended for nine games, including the entire 2007 postseason.
Houston nailed down a spot in the 2007 MLS Cup Playoffs with a 3-1 victory over the Galaxy. The Dynamo opened the scoring when Ryan Cochrane out-muscled a defender and headed a Dwayne De Rosario corner kick into the net for Cochrane’s first goal of the season. After the Galaxy tied the game, De Rosario converted a penalty kick and Ricardo Clark scored from a Brian Ching assist in the second half to secure the win.
Houston extended its unbeaten streak to four games behind the deveastating combination of Corey Ashe and Nate Jaqua. Ashe assisted on three Jaqua goals, and Eddie Robinson added a header as the Dynamo jumped out to a 4-1 lead before holding on for the win.
