In a physical game that included 35 combined fouls, the Dynamo were once again held to a tie at home on a first-half goal from an Eastern Conference team, this time an Eddie Johnson strike. Dwayne De Rosario produced the tying goal in the second half when he made a long run, then fed Joseph Ngwenya for a game-tying finish.
