CHARLESTON, S.C. – Houston Dynamo midfielder Adam Moffat unleashed one of his patented long-distance bombs to net the late game-winner as the Houston Dynamo came from behind to down the Vancouver Whitecaps 2-1 on Wednesday night at Blackbaud Stadium.

Moffat's strike came just two minutes after Will Bruin equalized for Houston with a cool finish on a 1-v-1 against the Vancouver goalkeeper in the 75th minute.
