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.

In a physical game that included 35 combined fouls, the Dynamo were once again held to a tie at home on a first-half goal from an Eastern Conference team, this time an Eddie Johnson strike. Dwayne De Rosario produced the tying goal in the second half when he made a long run, then fed Joseph Ngwenya for a game-tying finish.

Former Dynamo forward Alejandro Moreno scored his second goal in as many games against his former club to give Columbus an early lead. Houston then went up a man after Marcos Gonzalez was ejected, but the Dynamo did not tie the game until the 80th minute, when Nate Jaqua tapped in the rebound of a shot by former Crew forward Joseph Ngwenya to earn Houston a tie.

The Dynamo clinched El Capitán for the second straight year and ran their unbeaten streak against Dallas to five games with a 1-0 shutout of their in-state rivals. Just before halftime, Brian Mullan broke free down the right and crossed to Brian Ching for a full-speed, diving header from close range that ultimately gave the Dynamo the win. Ching, however, was injured and missed almost a month.

The Dynamo suffered their second consecutive 1-0 loss, as Colorado ended its own 10-game winless streak. The game's only goal was an own goal, scored when Dwayne De Rosario inadvertently headed a Colorado corner kick past Pat Onstad in the 60th minute. The Rapids ended the game a man down after Ugo Ihemelu was sent off in the 77th minute.

The Dynamo set an MLS record for longest shutout streak by extending their run to 695 minutes without allowing a goal. Houston could not, however, capitalize on a one-man advantage after Toronto’s Maurice Edu was ejected in the first half, outshooting Toronto 16-4 but failing to score.

A third nationally televised Thursday night game in less than a month brought the Dynamo their third 4-0 win behind goals from Stuart Holden, Nate Jaqua (against his former club), Joseph Ngwenya, and Chris Wondolowski. Ngwenya’s mazy dribbling run and tight-angle finish made his goal a finalist for Goal of the Year.
