The Houston Dynamo fell to Real Salt Lake, 1-0, on Saturday in Utah. Here is a look at milestones reached by Dynamo players this weekend:

Brad Davis started the game and played 90 minutes to become the first player in Dynamo history to surpass 20,000 career minutes (20,041) in all competitions with Houston. Bobby Boswell (18,642 minutes) is likely the next player with the best chance to surpass 20,000 minutes in all competitions with the Dynamo.  

Corey Ashe also played 90 minutes to pass Brian Mullan for fifth on the franchise minutes list in all competitions (14,767). Ashe next could pass Brian Ching (14,892) four fourth place. Pat Onstad (15,339) is third on the chart and is another realistic target for Ashe.

It was Ricardo Clark’s 200th career MLS regular season start (includes New York and San Jose years). It was also Clark’s 163rd start with the Dynamo in all competitions to pass Mullan for fourth on the club list. Clark’s next target is Onstad (170 starts).

It was Will Bruin’s 75th career MLS regular season game. Last week, we compared Bruin’s first three seasons with Houston to Dwayne De Rosario’s three year Dynamo tenure. The games, goals and assists totals are very similar between the two players.
