Tonight, the Houston Dynamo have once again stopped Philidelphia Union from advancing to the Eastern Conference Championship with a 1:0 win at Robertson stadium. Houston Dynamo Captain #25 Brian Ching scored the only goal of the night in the 48th min in stoppage time. The goal was assisted by none other than Houston Dynamo Midfielder #11 Brad Davis. Brad Davis is the MLS leader for assists to goals beating out LA Galaxies Midfielder #23 David Beckham.
The Houston Dynamo go on now to play Sporting K.C. this Sunday, 6 November 2011 @ K.C. for the Eastern Conference Championship. A win against K.C will send the Dynamo to LA to face the winners of the Western Conference Champions in the MLS cup final match.
Tonight the Dynamo one again showed the US that they belong with the leading teams and that they still have more to prove like their first 2 years in Houston. Dream, Scream, Believe!! Be Orange.
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.
