MLS Regular Season
Steph recaps a dramatic Dynamo win over Sporting Kansas City and reflects on the unfortunate injury to Tally Hall.
Continuity on the field despite a change in goal is the target for the Dynamo this Saturday as they host the Montreal Impact knowing they will be without one of their stalwarts for the rest of the year.
The Houston Dynamo announced Tuesday that starting goalkeeper Tally Hall will miss the remainder of the MLS season with a torn ACL in his right knee, suffered during the team’s win over Sporting Kansas City last Friday night.
Heading down the stretch with a lead on the road is situation the Houston Dynamo have not been in much this season.
Coming into Friday night’s game at Sporting Kansas City, the club had just one road win to their name — a May 3 result against lowly Chivas USA. For the first time since then they found themselves with a lead to protect against a rival in a hostile environment.
It hasn’t been a consistent weapon all season but when they needed it Friday night, the Houston Dynamo down reached for a reliable weapon: the set piece.
KANSAS CITY, Kan. – Sporting Kansas City's 50th straight home sellout turned out to be most memorable for being the cure to the Houston Dynamo's run of road futility.
And after not giving up three goals in one match for nearly six months of the league season, Sporting – usually the benchmark for defensive stinginess in MLS – have done it twice in a row.
