After a scoreless first half, New York took the lead on a Chris Henderson goal in the 67th minute. The Dynamo responded quickly when Dwayne De Rosario buried a penalty kick just three minutes later to tie the game, the first goal New York had allowed in 397 minutes. De Rosario later scuffled with New York’s Danny O’Rourke — formerly on the Houston roster — and both were ejected.
