MLS Regular Season
The Houston Dynamo’s slump carried on in spectacular fashion on Sunday night.
A Jack McInerney brace and Marco Di Vaio’s second goal of the season handed Houston their fifth straight MLS defeat as the Montreal Impact won 3-0 at Stade Saputo. The Dynamo (5-10-2, 17 pts) have now been scoreless through 479 minutes, a club record, and sit eighth in the East.

Honduras’ loss could be Houston’s gain. With Los Catrachos out of the World Cup, Boniek García is set to return to the Dynamo and could even be in contention to play a part in Sunday’s MLS clash away to the Montreal Impact (6:30 p.m. CT; CSN).
The attacking midfielder has missed the past six Dynamo matches in all competitions while with his country. Honduras endured a tough time in Brazil, losing to France, Ecuador and finally Switzerland.
The days of depleted numbers may finally be coming to an end for the Houston Dynamo.
As the club prepared Friday to return to MLS play with a trip to face the Montreal Impact on Sunday (6:30 p.m. CT, CSN), they had what must have felt like a crowded group, as several players coming off of or battling injuries were on the training field.
Wow, what a fantastic World Cup so far for the U.S.A. and for our friend Brad “Bradzil” Davis. For the first time ever, the U.S. qualified for the knockout stage for the second consecutive World Cup, and for the first time ever, a Houston Dynamo player started for the US in a World Cup game. Fantastic.
Written next to the mural on the ceiling of the first-floor lobby in City Hall is a grand inscription: “We fight for the cause of honor, virtue, liberty pledged to the glory of a mighty Houston.”
It has been a long wait, but Ricardo Clark is finally back on the field where he wants to be.
Clark made his first appearance in training on Monday when the club resumed work after a week-long break last week. Cleared to increase his training, the return ends a long two-month wait that has cost him nine games so far due to a concussion he suffered in a 4-0 loss to the New York Red Bulls on April 23.

The wait for a Houston Dynamo win goes on after the team’s latest fruitless performance -- but for one of their number, Friday’s defeat by Sporting Kansas City signaled the end of a far longer hold-up.
Ten-man Sporting Kansas City snapped their five-match winless streak and extended the Houston Dynamo’s own barren run by a 2-0 margin on Friday in the first meeting between the rivals since last November’s Eastern Conference final.
Like that occasion, this match went Sporting’s way -- even though they played for about 70 minutes with ten men on a warm night at BBVA Compass Stadium after the dismissal of Toni Dovale.
Two weeks is a long time to stew over a bad stretch. The Houston Dynamo will be looking to avoid the purgatory of entering Major League Soccer's break for the World Cup on a winless streak when they host Sporting Kansas City on Friday night (7:30 p.m. CT, TICKETS).
