The Houston Dynamo went to The Home Depot Center on Saturday and came away with a 2-0 win over Chivas USA. Houston continued its dominance with its 11th straight win over the Goats. As Grahame Jones points out, the Chivas defense was nonexistent for the first 10 minutes of the game. Dominic Kinnear deviated from his normal 4-4-2 formation to a 4-3-3/4-5-1 formation for the game, and it paid dividends.
Adrian Serioux and Craig Waibel started their first games of the season and anchored a backline that posted its third shutout of the season. Check out the fantastic goals by Serioux and Brad Davis. Can you say Goal of the Week?
