MLS Regular Season
Tally Hall recorded his first Save of the Week honor in Week 8 against New York. He's up for the award yet again, this time for his diving save to keep Toronto FC's Luke Moore from finding the back of the net. Hall used full extension and deflected the ball with his left hand to keep the match tied at 2-2. That save proved to be crucial as the matched ended in a 2-2 draw giving the Dynamo a point in the standings.
In the midst of a rough team season, Giles Barnes has shown to be a positive. The Houston Dynamo forward came into the season as an incumbent starter at forward. While it's not been a perfect season by any means, he is showing his worth.
For the third week in a row, the Houston Dynamo attack supplied the club with two goals. But for the third week in a row, it was not enough to get the full reward.
For the second straight weekend the Houston Dynamo and Toronto FC combined for four goals in the first half.
However, this time neither team found the net in the second half and shared the spoils after a 2-2 result Saturday evening at BBVA Compass Stadium.
