Mauro Manotas talked it over with his family when the offer came in. Did he want to stick with the life he knew, or embark on the adventure of a new league on a new continent?
It would be a big decision to make at any age, let alone as a teenager. The 19-year-old opted to join the Dynamo and after arriving in Texas on Sunday and taking part in his first training session on Monday, Manotas feels excited about his choice.
For about an hour, the Houston Dynamo felt they were in control against New York City FC in Saturday evening’s meeting at Yankee Stadium. At the final whistle, the Dynamo were relieved to escape with a point.
The reflexes of Tyler Deric certainly didn’t hurt.
NEW YORK – Will Bruin and David Villa traded first-half goals Saturday evening as New York City FC and the Houston Dynamo played to a 1-1 draw at Yankee Stadium.
It was Villa’s penalty kick in first-half stoppage time that won the point for the hosts after falling behind on Bruin’s goal in the 16th minute.

Luis Garrido may not be a game changer in the traditional sense.
Goalscoring isn’t in his repertoire. He may be a little rough around the edges when it comes to passing and in the attack. But the 5-foot-7 Houston Dynamo midfielder is a handful defensively, the epitome of a bulldog on the field, making him as tough an opponent as teams will face – a true destroyer in every sense of the word.
The Dynamo’s players trained at Houston Sports Park on Thursday night but would much preferred to have been nine miles north at BBVA Compass Stadium, taking on Manchester City.
The Houston Dynamo, Dash and BBVA Compass are teaming up to offer free admission to games on June 5 and 6 to Houston-area first responders as a thank you for their efforts in the community during this period of severe weather and flooding. The Dynamo host the New York Red Bulls on June 5 (8 p.m. kickoff), while the Dash take on Portland Thorns FC on June 6 at BBVA Compass Stadium (7:30 p.m. kickoff).
Stoppage time was not kind to the Houston Dynamo against the LA Galaxy, as they saw a positive result turn sour with two late critical plays -- the second of which will cause a few looks at the tape.
Down 1-0 after a stoppage-time header by never-say-die poster boy Alan Gordon, Houston subsequently looked to miss out on what replays showed was a missed penalty call. Chasing a loose ball Galaxy defender Oscar Sorto was shown a red card for a sliding tackle from behind on Dynamo defender David Horst.
CARSON, Calif. -- Robbie Keane was back on the field for the first time in seven weeks Friday night, and it made all the difference for the LA Galaxy.
Keane, who had missed the previous seven games with a groin injury, ignited an LA attack, then set up Alan Gordon for a stoppage-time header that gave the Galaxy a 1-0 triumph over the visiting Houston Dynamo, ending their five-game winless skid.
