The Houston Dynamo wrapped up their 2014 preseason campaign with a 2-0 win over the Charleston Battery of USL Pro in the final game of the Carolina Challenge Cup at Blackbaud Stadium.

As the final tune-up before the MLS regular season opener against the New England Revolution on March 8, two of the primary objectives of the evening were to give starters their longest runout before the real games start, and to come out of the game unscathed and injury-free. The former was accomplished, as the majority of the starting eleven went at least 80 minutes, if not the full 90.

Tony Cascio became the forgotten man in Colorado in 2013. After a promising rookie season, a slow start and inconsistency forced the winger to fall to the back of the pack and watch as the Rapids made a run to the playoffs.
