The Dynamo completed the 2014 preseason with a 2-0 win over the Charleston Battery on Saturday night. The victory capped a dizzying stretch of 11 preseason games in 32 days in preparation for the regular season, set to begin on Saturday as the Dynamo host the New England Revolution at BBVA Compass Stadium.
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.
The Houston Dynamo’s to-do list this preseason is short. At the top of that list, however, is filling the void left in the middle of their backline, and there are two players vying for the job with a familiar connection.
Barnes scores pair as Houston Dynamo roll to 4-1 win against new USL PRO affiliate Pittsburgh Riverhounds

Omar Cummings saved the best for last in his first season with the Houston Dynamo – but not by choice.
The journey to another MLS Cup has begun.

Goals from Brad Davis and Sito Seoane lifted the Houston Dynamo to a 2-0 win over Southern Methodist University in a preseason scrimmage Saturday morning at Methodist Champions Field at Houston Sports Park.
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.
The Houston Dynamo are still trying to shake off some lingering injuries from 2013, and a big part of a group of starters working their way back from knocks is starting central midfielder Warren Creavalle.
The 23-year-old had offseason surgery to address tendonitis in both knees, and when the Dynamo began preseason camp, head coach Dominic Kinnear said he believed he would have his active midfielder for opening day against the New England Revolution.
