Today at 4pm CST (16:00 hrs) the whistle was blown and the game started. Houston Dynamo played host to D.C. United for their first home game of the season. The road to this point has been one of wins, ties, and losses all played on the road away from their beloved fans. What was so special about today then…
It was the season opener for the Dynamo’s new very own stadium. A place the Dynamo can call home and make a firm true footprint in the Houston sports community. Winning the MLS Cup in their first two season in Houston and making it to the MLS Cup finals last season shows that the Dynamo have the skill and ability to win. Houston sport fans are some of the loudest, and toughest supporters of their teams. They will truly let the teams know when they are happy and not. Today however, was nothing but excitement.
The first half of the match was dominated by Union controlling the ball and pushing the defensive back four of the Dynamo hard. It wasn’t till the 2nd half tho that the table turned and Dynamo’s own Brad Davis delivered a beautiful ball ending up in the back of the net. This loan goal wound up being the winning goal of the match giving the Dynamo a 1:0 victory over D.C. Union.
The next home game will be this Tuesday, May 15th as the Dynamo host Portland Timbers. Come out and show your support and Dynamo spirit.

Yesterday, the Houston Dynamo played Philidelphia Union in game one of two for the first round of playoff games. The Dynamo came out on top 2:1 with some great shots and even better saves by Dynamos’ #1 Tally Hall. Union was able to sneak one luck deflection past the Dynamo keeper but it did not get the Dynamo spirits down. The second half of the game was less than desirable for the Dynamo with Union getting the form and really pressing the Dynamo defense. Corey Ashe came up with some amazing saves and clearings throughout the entirety of the second half.
The Dynamo hosted a view party at Baker St. Pub off W. Gray in Houston for the fans to come out and enjoy the game together. There were raffles and other door prizes being handed out along with an appearance of Dynamo Diesel and the Dynamo Girls. It was a great turn out with not an empty seat in the bar and a great showing of the game.
Join us Thursday night at 7:30pm at Robertson Stadium for game two against Philadelphia Union. The Dynamo must maintain a goal lead in order to move on to the next round of games. For those interested the MLS cup will be played in LA on 20 November 2011.
Last Sunday, 23 October 2011 the Houston Dynamo hosted the LA Galaxies here at Robertson Stadium.
