In a physical game that featured 36 fouls, the Dynamo went behind on a goal from Steve Ralston early in the second half. Houston rebounded for an important road point, however, when Wade Barrett’s low cross found an unlikely target in defender Ryan Cochrane, whose one-timer deflected past Matt Reis for the tying goal.
