There’s a different feel around the Houston Dynamo these days. A team that a month ago was looking for answers has suddenly sprung to life.

The Plan

After a first half of seeing 60 percent of the possession but no goals, the Houston Dynamo were frustrated. Seeing good play on the field, head coach Dominic Kinnear preached patience. And after the final whistle blew, the plan paid off and the result was theirs.

Boniek García might be one of the Houston Dynamo's most talented and experienced players, but he sure is having a tough time getting on the stat sheet this season.

García has made 18 starts this year, but he hasn't scored since the season opener and his only assist came on May 3. For a player of his quality and CV, the struggles are puzzling and something he and Houston hope to correct when they host the Philadelphia Union on Friday night (8 p.m. CT; TICKETS).

Plenty has changed since DaMarcus Beasley and Maurice Edu were last in MLS, but while the two recent recruits may still be adjusting to the novelty of their surroundings, they are very familiar with each other.

The U.S. internationals are set to face off on opposite sides on Friday night at BBVA Compass Stadium as the Dynamo host the Philadelphia Union in a big Eastern Conference clash (8 p.m. CT; TICKETS), but five years ago they were title-winning teammates.

It’s been a short week for the Houston Dynamo, going from a Sunday game in Seattle to a Friday home game against the Philadelphia Union (8 p.m. CT; TICKETS). For forward Will Bruin, the hope is that it’s just enough to keep him in the starting lineup.
