The palpable disappointment in the Houston Dynamo locker room Tuesday night – after their 1-0 home loss to the San Jose Earthquakes at BBVA Compass Stadium – was not only due to the defeat, but also the way they lost.

Dynamo head coach Owen Coyle described the Quakes’ lone goal of the night, an Adam Jahn header on a quick restart, as “soft” and expressed frustration in not being able to translate a dominating possession game into goals – a problem that has plagued Houston on their current two-game losing streak and four-game winless skid.

For nine years Dominic Kinnear prowled the sidelines in Houston. He never wore Dynamo orange – Kinnear opted for white, blue or black shirts while in the technical area – but always pushed his troops in the local colors to play hard.

The Texas Derby was no contest Friday night as FC Dallas was quick and efficient on their way to a 4-1 win over the Houston Dynamo at BBVA Compass Stadium.

Dallas exploited any space the Dynamo would give them, conceding possession for large stretches and relying on their speed and counterattack to be the difference. Houston struggled to close the gaps and Dallas took advantage early and often and was efficient scoring four goals off six shots. Teammates Mauro Diaz and Fabian Castillo had a goal and two assists each on the night.

Just before halftime against Sporting Kansas City, Will Bruin produced a familiar scene.

The Houston Dynamo forward flashed to the near post, got his head on a free kick and headed it home. It was his 36th MLS regular-season goal and 42nd in all competitions with the Dynamo.

Getting just his third start this season, Bruin’s 2015-account opener carried some added weight.
