Brad Davis and DaMarcus Beasley look back on the loss to D.C. and the season as a whole.
Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear assesses the team's defeat to D.C. United and looks back on the season.
Before Sunday’s game DaMarcus Beasley felt his hamstring was 100 percent. Twelve minutes after kickoff, not so much.
The Dynamo’s Designated Player exited before the quarter hour with a left hamstring injury he picked up trying to run down Nick DeLeon in what turned into a 3-1 Houston loss.
For the first time since 2010, and just the second time in club history, there will not be playoff soccer in Houston. Needing a result to stay in the hunt for a playoff spot, the Houston Dynamo fell 3-1 at the hands of D.C. United, ending their chances at another postseason run.
HOUSTON – Thanks to goals from Taylor Kemp, Fabian Espindola and Eddie Johnson, D.C. United are are one step closer to a worst-to-first season in the Eastern Conference after claiming a 3-1 win over the Houston Dynamo on Sunday.
The win gives D.C., now 1-9-1 all-time in Houston, 56 points and puts them six points clear of the second-place New England Revolution. The defeat eliminated the Dynamo from playoff contention.

David Horst, Eric Brunner, and Dominic Kinnear look at the keys to the game against D.C. United on Sunday.
The revolving door at center back for the Houston Dynamo will take another spin Sunday as the club heads into their next “biggest game of the year” without recent starter AJ Cochran.
Maybe … just, maybe.
The Dynamo still have a lot of ground to make up in a short space of time, but are entering a two-game homestand with renewed hope after the defiant 1-0 win over Toronto FC on Wednesday that kept postseason ambitions alive and raised the stakes for this weekend’s clash.
