Thirty minutes into Tuesday's US Open Cup semifinal at Sporting Park, the Houston Dynamo were feeling good. They were controlling the tempo and creating chances against a Sporting Kansas City team that sputtered out of the gates.

Things changed when Luis Garrido was shown the door for a reckless challenge on Amadou Dia in the 30th minute, putting the Dynamo down a man and sentencing the visitors to 60 minutes of chasing and defending in what turned out to be a 3-1 loss.

KANSAS CITY, Kan. – Dom Dwyer atoned for one bad kick with an unstoppable one – and then tacked on an assist for good measure.

After having a penalty kick saved in the second half of Tuesday night's U.S. Open Cup quarterfinal against the shorthanded Houston Dynamo, Dwyer delivered the go-ahead goal in the 86th minute and followed that up with an assist on Krisztian Nemeth's insurance goal to complete Sporting Kansas City's 3-1 comeback victory.

In a game with 36 shots and more than its fair share of veterans, it was the youngest player on the field who broke through for the only goal, but it did not come as a surprise.

Owen Coyle wants the Dynamo to start showing their quality on a consistent basis as the team embarks on a two-match homestand that begins with Tuesday’s Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup tie against the Colorado Rapids (7:30 p.m. CT; TICKETS).

The head coach has been pleased with much of what he’s seen this season but in recent matches the side has failed to put the pieces together for the whole 90 minutes and fell to 2-0 road defeats to the Portland Timbers and, last Friday, FC Dallas.
