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.

When a bum hamstring knocked DaMarcus Beasley out of the lineup Saturday night, the Houston Dynamo had a sure hand to turn to in Corey Ashe.
