FC Dallas and the Houston Dynamo had to wait a bit to get going, but once they did they played it even and finished level at 1-1 splitting a point in the Texas Derby's second installment.
The teams only got in four minutes of play before the game was delayed for 113 minutes due to a rainstorm in the area causing heavy water buildup on the field.
Field conditions required some adjustment, but that didn't stop Fabian Castillo from using his speed. In the 23' he was able to sprint and hold up on the wing creating a passing lane for the bouncing cross that Ryan Hollingshead was able to smash home for the opening goal.
The Dynamo leveled things up in the second half just past fifty minutes of play. Ricardo Clark was trailing the play when a broken up Andrew Winger pass fell directly into his path. Clark hit a rocket that Dallas goalkeeper Chris Seitz had no hope of stopping.
Houston Dynamo (3-7-4; 13 points) at Dallas (8-4-3; 27 points)
