Wilf Thorne/Houston Dynamo

Dynamo Daily - August 2, 2010

The Dynamo fought hard to earn a 2-2 draw Saturday night against the New York Red Bulls. Houston was down until the 90th minute, when Brian Mullan scored a thrilling goal off a long ball by Andrew Hainault. Thierry Henry failed to score a goal in his MLS debut, but he did assist on one goal and help set up another. Possibly the most interesting event of the match was when fans ran onto the field and confronted Henry soon after Mullan scored his equalizing goal. The Dynamo were able to earn a draw, even after Lovel Palmer was inexplicably sent off in the first half after a questionable foul call.

Although many believe Henry is past his prime, those in attendance Saturday night saw some phenomenal play from the French international. Adding to the excitement of Henry on the New York squad, the Red Bulls are set to announce a third Designated Player on Tuesday. It is believed that player will be Mexican national team captain Rafael Marquez.

New York just can’t stay out of the news, as talks are under way to breathe new life into the New York Cosmos, with a long-term goal of the team becoming an MLS expansion squad.
