Set pieces have become one of the Houston Dynamo’s calling cards in 2015. Saturday night in Portland they betrayed the Dynamo in a 2-0 loss.

Three set pieces were the story at Providence Park, as Houston fell prey to the Timbers twice from dead balls, first when Maximiliano Urruti scored a perfectly placed looping header and then when David Horst conceded a penalty kick for a foul on a set piece play in the second half, which Gaston Fernandez converted.

PORTLAND, Ore. – The Portland Timbers’ spring resurgence will roll right into summer after the Argentine pair of Maximiliano Urruti and Gaston Fernandez found goals in their 2-0 victory over the Houston Dynamo on Saturday night at Providence Park.

It’s Portland’s fourth straight MLS victory and fifth overall, following their US Open Cup win Wednesday over rival Seattle Sounders, pushing them into third place in the Western Conference with 25 points from 16 games.

The Houston Dynamo made no mistake that they were looking to “evolve” in 2015 with new management in charge.

Part of putting that plan in motion was bringing in Spanish center back Raúl Rodríguez, someone who was good on the ball in addition to being good defensively. And Rodriguez was penned into the starting lineup the moment he signed up.

For many years, the book on the Houston Dynamo was, 'do not allow them set pieces.' But for the past three seasons that book was a work of fiction.

From 2012 to 2014, Houston’s presumed dominance and reliance on set pieces became a leftover myth from days past when the club truly feasted off service. Under new head coach Owen Coyle, Houston have rekindled that magic in 2015.

With 10 of their 21 goals off restarts, the Dynamo are once again league leaders and setting a historic pace.

Futile streaks both collective and individual were put to the sword in Friday night’s wild 4-2 win for the Houston Dynamo over the New York Red Bulls at BBVA Compass Stadium.

The victory was Houston’s first over the Red Bulls in the MLS regular season since August 3, 2012, and ended a run of seven league games without success against the side they ousted from the postseason in 2013.
