After a barren six weeks for results and goals, getting a point and scoring twice can feel good for a club. Giving up two goals, however, will put a damper on that excitement.

That’s the case for the Houston Dynamo after they came from behind to save a 2-2 draw with the New York Red Bulls on Friday night. An improved offensive performance that saw them score twice after being shut out in the previous five games was certainly a good sign.

But giving up two on issues that players have repeatedly talked about fixing threw cold water on some of that positivity.

The setting looked all too familiar for the Houston Dynamo. Final 10 minutes, down a goal, chasing the game and watching good chances fall by the wayside. That had been part of the script the previous five games, all losses.

But on Friday night things changed.
