HOUSTON – Patrick Nyarko made the most of his return to MLS action after 10 months on the shelf.

In his first league match since suffering an ACL injury Oct. 14 last season, the Chicago Fire attacker netted the late equalizer to give his team a 1-1 draw Friday night against hosts Houston Dynamo at BBVA Compass Stadium.

It negated the Dynamo opener in the second half from former Fire midfielder Alex.

Getting a handle on the Houston Dynamo this season has been a chore.

One week they’re scoring four goals and the next two weeks they’re getting shut out. Their defense was one of the best in the league through the first seven games and now has gone 10 games without a clean sheet.

That process has Houston with 20 points from 17 games, six out of the playoff race at the halfway point of the season.

It's been said that it's not the start but the finish that matters in sports, but on Friday night the Houston Dynamo’s start put them in a hole they could not crawl out of by the end of a 2-0 loss to Texas rivals FC Dallas at Toyota Stadium. Within the first 45 minutes Houston were behind the eight-ball thanks in large part due to the speed of Fabian Castillo and an inability to take control of the ball.

The Dynamo are boosted by the return of Giles Barnes and Jermaine Taylor from the Copa America as Owen Coyle’s side heads north to Frisco for a Friday night Texas derby.

Jamaica exited the Copa at the group stage but the underdogs performed creditably, losing to Uruguay, Paraguay and Argentina by a score of 1-0 each time.

23 June 5:30 pm

As you all know, it is derby week. Your Houston Dynamo will travel north to face FC Dallas on Friday, June 26. No doubt, the men in Orange will be looking for a bit of revenge after the first meeting between the two sides on May 1.

Set pieces have become one of the Houston Dynamo’s calling cards in 2015. Saturday night in Portland they betrayed the Dynamo in a 2-0 loss.

Three set pieces were the story at Providence Park, as Houston fell prey to the Timbers twice from dead balls, first when Maximiliano Urruti scored a perfectly placed looping header and then when David Horst conceded a penalty kick for a foul on a set piece play in the second half, which Gaston Fernandez converted.
