The Houston
Dynamo cruised to a 5-0 scrimmage victory over San
Jacinto Junior College
Monday morning at the Carl Lewis Track & Field Complex in Houston. The Dynamo remain unbeaten in
preseason play at 7-0-3 and conclude their preseason schedule this weekend when
they participate in the Atlanta Pro Soccer Challenge. Houston will face the Columbus Crew Friday
night and the New England Revolution on Sunday afternoon.

In Monday’s
scrimmage, Houston opened the scoring in just
the third minute, when Brad Davis converted a penalty kick after a handball was
whistled against San Jacinto. Houston forward Cam Weaver added two goals in
the first half, one set up by Dominic Oduro in the 19th minute and the other a
header from a Davis cross.

The Dynamo
changed 10 of their 11 starters at halftime and added two more goals in the
final stanza. In the 62nd minute, rookie forward Will Bruin played a long-range
give-and-go with Danny Cruz, with Bruin applying the finishing touch for his
fourth goal in two scrimmages. Two minutes later, Houston added its fifth goal when Alex Dixon
scored from close range following a corner kick.

Houston goalkeeper Tyler Deric played the
full 90 minutes for the first time this preseason and needed two saves to
record the shutout. Defenders Andrew Hainault and Jordan Graye saw their first
preseason action at outside back and center back, respectively. Supplemental
draft pick Sergio Castillo, with the team during spring break from Creighton University, played 45 minutes in central
midfield for the second straight match.
