The Dynamo wore special maroon jerseys in support of the victims of a shooting tragedy at Virginia Tech University, but their traditional orange went missing as Chicago earned a 1-0 road win. Despite eight corner kicks, the Dynamo could not score, and Chris Rolfe fired in the only goal of the game in the 60th minute.
