MLS Regular Season
WASHINGTON -- What a difference a year makes.
Just a season after being swept in their three-game series with the Houston Dynamo by a combined score of 8-1, D.C. United made easy work of the Dynamo on Wednesday night, riding goals from Fabian Espindola and Chris Rolfe to a 2-0 victory at RFK Stadium.
Mark Sherrod has taken advantage of his opportunities.
Drafted by the Houston Dynamo in the second round of this year’s SuperDraft (No. 32 overall), the big forward has worked his way from first earning a contract to becoming a late-game substitute to starting the past two games, where he’s produced two goals and an assist. Helping him work up the ladder has been his work ethic and willingness to mix things up in the air and on the ground, along with a finishing touch around goal.
In the search for Boniek García's right side replacement, Omar Cummings shows his worth vs. LA Galaxy
The Dynamo knew their clash with the Los Angeles Galaxy would be Boniek García’s final appearance in orange for a while. What no one could have foreseen is that it would last only 23 minutes.

Defenders don't always make headed goal line clearances, but when they do, there's a good chance that they'll be nominated for Save of the Week. That's what David Horst did against the Galaxy to preserve a shutout en route to a 1-0 win, and sure enough he is up for MLSsoccer.com's weekly award.

Honduras fans can exhale.
After leaving the Houston Dynamo-LA Galaxy game in the 18th minute, Honduran midfielder Boniek García looks to have escaped a major injury issue before heading to the Catrachos' pre-World Cup camp Monday.
The Houston Dynamo and LA Galaxy were locked in a tight and scoreless affair, but the former used key plays from David Horst, Mark Sherrod and Giles Barnes to pick up a 1-0 win at BBVA Compass Stadium.
Horst's moment, however, was the most important as far as Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear was concerned.
