Houston Dynamo left scratching their heads after mistake-filled night in loss to SJ Earthquakes

Miscues doom Dynamo

The Houston Dynamo had plenty of chances in their Sunday night showdown with the San Jose Earthquakes – and the misses proved costly in a 3-0 loss at Buck Shaw Stadium.

Twice in the first half the Dynamo were a Jon Busch save away from a goal and lead on the road. The buildups were good, but all that was missing was the finish to cap them off.

That was compounded by mistakes at the back and a foul in the box that led to a penalty kick.

The Houston Dynamo personnel woes continue. The club confirmed this week that rookie forward Mark Sherrod will miss the rest of the season due a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

Sherrod left Wednesday’s loss to D.C. United after suffering the injury while battling Bobby Boswell for a ball in the corner early in the game. The rookie immediately hit the ground and was sent back to Houston for evaluation. An MRI Thursday revealed the injury ending Sherrod’s season.

The Dynamo are traveling light for their road game against the San Jose Earthquakes on Sunday night (9:30 p.m. CT, CSN) after their already-depleted ranks were reduced again in Washington on Wednesday.

Rookie striker Mark Sherrod came off early with a knee injury diagnosed by Houston Methodist medical staff as a torn left anterior cruciate ligament. The 23-year-old is the second Dynamo player within a couple of weeks to be ruled out for the long term with a torn ACL.

Houston may be associated with space, but in a soccer context, it was a problem for the Dynamo on Wednesday night.

The depleted club struggled to create room in attack for a majority of the first half, and then gave up too much to D.C. United forwards Fabian Espindola and Chris Rolfe who exploited it in one-on-one battles with center back David Horst to notch their goals in a 2-0 road loss at RFK Stadium.

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.

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.
