The Dynamo
won
their SuperLiga opener last night 2-1 against Mexican rival Pachuca. Tally Hall was the man of the match for the Dynamo, fending off the Pachuca attack and stopping countless point blank opportunities. Joseph Ngwenya provided the offense for the Dynamo, scoring both goals in the match. Pachuca head coach Guillermo Rivarola was not pleased with the Dynamo's style of play last night. With the win over Pachuca, the Dynamo broke a six-game winless streak against Mexican clubs in competition.
