Brian Ching addresses the fans, friends and family in attendance at his testimonial match as he ends his playing career.
First up, the man everyone came to see: Mr. Brian Ching nets five on his special night.
Brad Davis got the best of Landon Donovan in goal, chipping him from nearly the halfway mark.
Calen Carr scored two goals for the White Team, making excellent use of his helmet on both occaisions.
Current Dynamo assistant coach notched one as well, following up Pat Onstad's save from a Hunter Freeman shot.
Last but certainly not least, The Bachelor—Juan Pablo Galavis—showed his skill by chipping the on-rushing Tyler Deric and crashing into the post to bag a goal.
Dynamo broadcaster Glenn Davis is back on the air tonight with a new episode of Dynamo All-Access, presented by Houston Community College. The show will air on Yahoo! Sports Radio 1560 AM from 7-9 p.m.

Dynamo goalkeepers coach Tim Hanley will also join Glenn in studio.
Listen in as Glenn talks everything Dynamo!
The call-in number for the show is 713-439-1560.
Andrew Luck, Houston Dynamo superfan? You bet. In a recent interview with Roger Bennett and the Men in Blazers podcast, the Stratford High School alum dished on his love of the beautiful game. When asked about his favorite team, here's what the Indianapolis Colts quarterback had to say:
"The team that I follow completely is the Houston Dynamo. That's my No. 1 team in my heart because my father used to work for that club."
His father of course being Oliver Luck, former president of the Dynamo and current athletic director at West Virginia University.
Luck goes on to mention that he keeps up with MLS and is excited about the growth of the sport in the US, but he describes his own soccer playing style as "a hustler with zero technical ability." But who knows, maybe we could use a long-throw specialist at another testimonial match.
Dynamo TV brings you all the moments from the Brian Ching Testimonial Match.
