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.

The Houston Dynamo showed great resiliency after claiming a 1-0 victory over Toronto FC down a man, but the way they were put in that disadvantageous position was brought into question after the game.

Rookie center back AJ Cochran was shown a straight red card when he was whistled for bringing down Toronto FC forward Luke Moore in the box in the 55th minute. Moore broke into the box and past Cochran, who grabbed his jersey.

Tyler Deric has his signature moment.

After a bizarre three minutes ended with an AJ Cochran red card and Houston going down a man, Deric stoned the penalty kick of one of the league’s premier strikers, Jermain Defoe, before going on to make save after unbelievable save to preserve a critical 1-0 win for the 10-man Dynamo at Toronto FC.
