Will Bruin never hesitated. Having beaten the backline to get into a one-on-one situation against the opposing goalkeeper, the forward knew exactly where he wanted to go: up and over.

Bruin’s 83rd-minute chip sailed just out of the reach of goalkeeper Adam Kwarasey to ice a 3-1 win over the Portland Timbers.

When Giles Barnes led his Houston Dynamo teammates out of the tunnel to face Toronto FC Sunday, he couldn’t help but take it all in.

With captain Brad Davis out due to a hamstring injury, the English transplant donned the armband for the first time. Fulfilling the captain’s role, the 26-year-old was in a position that might’ve seemed impossible just three years ago.

When Raúl Rodríguez was signed this offseason, the idea was for him to be Houston Dynamo’s stalwart at center back. So, when he was deployed at right back on Sunday, it was a different feel for him and the club, but it came with good results.

Like all MLS clubs, the Houston Dynamo had their eyes on loads of young talent at the adidas MLS Player Combine in January.

But the Dynamo’s gaze extended beyond South Florida during that time.

While scouting draft talent in Fort Lauderdale, new Houston Dynamo head coach Owen Coyle and general manager Matt Jordan were looking at a particular 19-year-old forward playing one thousand miles away.

The palpable disappointment in the Houston Dynamo locker room Tuesday night – after their 1-0 home loss to the San Jose Earthquakes at BBVA Compass Stadium – was not only due to the defeat, but also the way they lost.

Dynamo head coach Owen Coyle described the Quakes’ lone goal of the night, an Adam Jahn header on a quick restart, as “soft” and expressed frustration in not being able to translate a dominating possession game into goals – a problem that has plagued Houston on their current two-game losing streak and four-game winless skid.
