Houston Dynamo players reach milestones in Saturday's win at New England
The Houston Dynamo secured their third road win of the season on Saturday, a 2-1 victory over the New England Revolution. Here are the career milestones Dynamo players reached in Saturday’s road win:
Midfielder Adam Moffat scored two second half goals, included a stunning 25-yard left-footed volley that is an MLS Goal of the Week nominee. It was the first two-goal game of Moffat’s MLS career and the first two goals he has scored this season.
It was also the first two-goal game for a Dynamo player since Will Bruin’s two-goal, two-assist performance at D.C. United on May 8.
Moffat’s two-goal performance coincided with his 50th career regular season start with the Dynamo.
Midfielder Ricardo Clark set up Moffat’s second goal for his third assist of the season to match a career-high set in 2006 and 2007. It was also Clark’s 11th career regular season assist with Houston to tie Dwayne De Rosario for eighth on the franchise list.
It was also Clark’s 161st career start with the Dynamo in all competitions. He is tied with Brian Ching for fifth on the franchise list.
Goalkeeper Tally Hall made his 116th career appearance in all competitions with Dynamo. He is tied with Craig Waibel for 13th on club’s all-time list.
Houston defender Eric Brunner played 90 minutes to surpass 7,500 regular season minutes in his six-year MLS career.
