HOUSTON DYNAMO vs PHILADELPHIA UNION BBVA COMPASS STADIUM, Houston, Texas October 20, 2012 (WEEK 32, MLS Game #309) 6:30 p.m. CT (NBC SN; TSN2) The Houston Dynamo will be aiming to extend their long unbeaten run while also securing a spot in the MLS Cup Playoffs when they play host to Philadelphia Union on Saturday evening at BBVA Compass Stadium. The Dynamo are undefeated at home over the entire season, their streak now at 24 games, and are still hanging on to fifth place in the Eastern Conference following their 1-1 draw with Montréal last time out. Union are eliminated from playoff consideration but have won two games in a row, coming off a 1-0 win against New England before the international break. REFEREE: Mark Geiger.

A late Brian Ching penalty kick was the decider in a 2-1 Dynamo victory June 30 at BBVA Compass Stadium, then Freddy Adu scored a pair of goals in a 3-1 Union win Sept. 23 at PPL Park.  The win in the first meeting was the Dynamo’s first in league play vs. Philadelphia; Union had won two of the first four, with two draws. But Houston did win both legs of last year’s Eastern Conference Semifinal Series, a 2-1 win in Chester followed by a 1-0 victory in Houston, on their way to MLS Cup 2011.  Coaches record: John Hackworth vs. HOU: P2 W1 L1 D0 … Dominic Kinnear v PHI: P6 W1 L3 D2 LAST MEETING  Union took the lead in the 28th minute. Right back Ray Gaddis made a marauding run up the field and put in a cross that eventually found its way to Freddy Adu beyond the far post. Adu then cut the ball in front of goal and beat Dynamo goalkeeper Tally Hall to the near post.  The Dynamo pulled level just a minute before halftime when Boniek García hit a beautiful strike off the post and in, following a great feed from Will Bruin, who sucked both defenders to him in the middle of the box.  Adu netted his second goal of game when he banged home a 50th-minute penalty kick after André Hainault dragged down Philly’s Sheanon Williams in the box. Adu then left the game while clutching his left leg, replaced by Keon Daniel.  Josué Martinez capped the victory in the 71th minute when he got his foot on a blast from center back Amobi Okugo and took another touch to beat Hall right in front of the net.  PHILADELPHIA UNION (4-4-2): Zac MacMath - Raymon Gaddis, Carlos Valdes, Amobi Okugo, Sheanon Williams - Danny Cruz (Chris Albright 81), Michael Lahoud, Brian Carroll, Michael Farfan - Freddy Adu (Keon Daniel 57 / Antoine Hoppenot 66), Josue Martinez.  HOUSTON DYNAMO (4-3-3): Tally Hall - Kofi Sarkodie, Andre Hainault (Cam Weaver 81), Bobby Boswell, Jermaine Taylor - Luiz Camargo (Giles Barnes 63), Ricardo Clark, Brad Davis - Boniek Garcia, Will Bruin, Macoumba Kandji (Calen Carr 46).

MLS GAME INFORMATION

HOUSTON DYNAMO The Houston Dynamo extended their long undefeated streak at home for one more match, reaching a 1-1 draw with the Montréal Impact on Oct. 6 at BBVA Compass Stadium. The Dynamo are in fifth place in the Eastern Conference with 50 points from 32 games. LAST MATCH  The Dynamo opened the scoring in the 44th minute when winger Calen Carr shook Impact defender Alessandro Nesta in the box and set up Will Bruin up for a poke inside the near post.  But the Impact pulled even in the 66th minute. Marco Di Vaio played a sublime turn and through ball to Sanna Nyassi, who was persistent cleaning up his own rebound after an initial save by Dynamo goalkeeper Tally Hall.  Houston’s Brian Ching appeared to pull out the full three points with a chip of Montreal goalkeeper Troy Perkins in the 93rd minute, but after a conference between referee Chris Penso and assistant referee Jason Cullum, Ching was ruled offside and the goal was disallowed.  Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear made one change to the team that recorded a late 2-0 win against the New England Revolution at BBVA Compass Stadium. Macoumba Kandji came into the team in place of Brad Davis.  HOUSTON DYNAMO (4-4-2): Tally Hall - Kofi Sarkodie, Jermaine Taylor, Bobby Boswell, Corey Ashe - Boniek Garcia, Adam Moffat (Warren Creavalle 89), Ricardo Clark, Calen Carr - Will Bruin (Cam Weaver 72), Macoumba Kandji (Brian Ching 72). TEAM NEWS  It’s the final home game of the regular season for the Dynamo, who are bidding to become the fourth team in MLS history to go undefeated at home over an entire season (San Jose, 2005; Real Salt Lake, 2010; LA Galaxy, 2011).  The Dynamo are also riding a 24-game home unbeaten streak in league play, now the second-longest in MLS history. Real Salt Lake’s 29-game streak from 2009-11 is the league record.  “Definitely happy when it’s all said and done that we’re in the position that if the season ended today we’d be in,” said goalkeeper Tally Hall. “We look back and we still see some critical things that we need to do better. … I know it’s late in the season, but those things can still be done and still be accomplished. We’re in a spot where we can get in if we do our job ,so at the end of the day, it’s not so bad.”  The Dynamo can also lay claim to a place in the MLS Cup Playoffs with a victory vs. Philadelphia and a Columbus Crew loss earlier Saturday at D.C. United.  “We live to fight another day and we still have some business to attend to,” said defender Bobby Boswell. “Our destiny’s still in our hands, but we’ve made it a little tougher on ourselves.”  Midfielder Brad Davis missed the Montréal match with a calf injury suffered during training, but has returned to full training. He is listed as questionable for the Philadelphia match on the club’s injury report.  “This is the first time I’ve been really able to get back on the field and really test it,” Davis said. “You want to slowly progress and that’s what I was doing, going through some slow agility stuff and making sure that was okay and then ramping it up and I ended up getting to a 100 percent. Now I know I’m comfortable with the fact that I can get back into training and feel confident that the calf’s good.”  Said Boswell: “He’s a great player and obviously he’s been a part of everything in terms of our success. We need everyone who's available and healthy to play, so getting him back to healthy is the goal. ... He’s a very important piece of this team.”  Will Bruin scored his 12th goal of the season, his first since Aug. 25. “Obviously we would’ve liked to get the win [against Montreal] but we still have [the playoffs] within our control,” said Bruin. “I really don’t feel as much pressure on us, I just feel we have to go out and play and the results will take care of themselves. There’re only two games left so there are not many more opportunities we can miss.”  Cam Weaver made his third consecutive appearance as a substitute, his fifth in the last eight games after going more than three months without a first-team outing.  Brian Ching also came off the bench for the final 18 minutes in his 14th substitute appearance since the midway point of the campaign.  “I thought we did everything right [except for] getting in the back of the net,” said Weaver. “In the end, it’s about the ball crossing that line and hitting the back of the net and, unfortunately, we weren’t able to do that.” PHILADELPHIA UNION Philadelphia Union won for a second match on the trot, defeating the New England Revolution 1-0 on Oct. 6 at PPL Park. Union are in seventh place in the Eastern Conference with 36 points from 31 games. LAST MATCH  The game's lone goal came in the 73rd minute. After Michael Farfan won a free kick in the right corner, Jack McInerney snuck to the back post and headed home Keon Daniel's service.  The Revolution finished the game a man down when midfielder Benny Feilhaber was sent off in the 89th minute for his second yellow card.

MLS GAME INFORMATION

Union interim manager John Hackworth made two changes to the team that defeated the Chicago Fire 3-1 at Toyota Park. Gabriel Farfan came into the back four for Sheanon Williams, and Gabriel Gomez replaced Danny Cruz in the midfield.  PHILADELPHIA UNION (4-2-3-1): Zac MacMath - Raymon Gaddis, Amobi Okugo, Carlos Valdes, Gabriel Farfan - Michael Lahoud (Antoine Hoppenot 61), Brian Carroll - Michael Farfan, Gabriel Gomez (Roger Torres 71), Keon Daniel - Jack McInerney (Chris Albright 81). TEAM NEWS  Union have now won two games in a row since being eliminated from playoff contention, and have taken the full three points in three of their last four games off an eight-game winless run.  “We’ll get results and we’re playing good. Before, I think we were playing good, and we weren’t getting the results. And that’s what I think this team has a little bit of a chip on their shoulder, because we want to prove to people that we can play well and get the results,” Union manager John Hackworth said. “And so the guys in that room have a lot of pride, a lot of character.”  Jack McInerney scored for a third consecutive match, equaling the Union club record for consecutive games with a goal, which had been done three times previously.  “Jack McInerney has been really important to us in the last couple months and it’s great to see him scoring goals because for this team, in the last couple games, he’s done a huge amount of work and this is a tough position for him because we’re asking him to do it by himself a little bit,” Hackworth said. “ … I think what you’re seeing right now is a goal-scorer's mentality. This is the third game in a row he’s scored and I can’t remember that happening here before. All of these things are good indicators of what we already knew.”  Union goalkeeper Zac MacMath kept his eighth shutout of the season, his first since a scoreless draw at New England on Sept. 1.  “Everyone sets individual goals as well as team goals,” MacMath said. “That’s on my priority list for individual goals. [Ten shutouts is] something I hope to reach. … It had been a while. I’m happy to get one under my belt and I’m trying to close out the season with as many shutouts as I can.”  Making a start in consecutive games for the first time since June 30-July 4, Keon Daniel recorded his first assist of the season.  “I think it showed in the last two games why everyone in the locker room and coaching staff feel that way. In consecutive games, he’s contributed in every possible way,” Hackworth said. “ … He was really good in possession and going forward. He joined the attack and his service, especially on set pieces, was excellent and consistent. But he did a lot of work to get back and his intensity was right. I think it’s been something he’s struggled with – the intensity in this league. He’s certainly stepped up in that regard.”  After missing the New England match with what was first feared to be a season-ending Achilles tendon injury, winger Danny Cruz says he will be available for the final two matches this season. He is listed as questionable on the club’s injury report.  “I don’t plan on missing any more games,” Cruz said. “ … I think people that know me know I can play through a lot. But that scared me. It was a sharp, shooting pain and something I’ve never felt before. So I was really worried. But everything turned out well.”

DYNAMO NOTES 

_

Dynamo play to 1‐1 draw with Montreal: The Dynamo and Montreal Impact drew 1‐1 on Oct. 6 at BBVA Compass  Stadium. Will Bruin handed the Dynamo a lead just before halftime, but Montrealʹs Sanna Nyassi evened the score midway  through the second half. Deep into second half stoppage time, Brian Ching scored an apparent game‐winner with a perfect  chip over charging Montreal goalkeeper Troy Perkins. But after a conference between the referees, Ching was ruled offside  and the goal was nullified.     

Bruin nearing Ching’s season goals mark: Will Bruin scored his 12th goal of the season on Oct. 6 vs. Montreal. With his  next goal, Bruin will tie Brian Ching, who set a franchise record with 13 goals in 2008. Bruin is one of only three players in  team history to reach 10 goals, joining Ching (13 in 2008, 11 in 2006) and Dwayne De Rosario (11 in 2006).

Hall breaks former mentor Pat Onstad’s shutout record: Goalkeeper Tally Hall recorded his 12th shutout of the season on  Sept. 29 against New England. With the clean sheet, Hall passed former teammate Pat Onstad, who set an individual  franchise record with 11 shutouts in 2007, when the club had a total of 13 clean sheets in 30 regular season games. Hall is  second in the league in shutouts, trailing only Jimmy Nielsen of Sporting Kansas City (14).  

Ching among best finishers in league history: Brian Ching has scored 82 goals in his 11‐year Major League Soccer career  and has been one of the most efficient finishers in league history. Among players with a minimum of 100 career shots on  goal, Ching has the second best goals‐per‐shot‐on‐goal percentage, at 43%. Simply put, 43 percent of the time Ching has  recorded a shot on goal, he has scored. Below is a chart of the best scoring rates for players with a minimum of 100 shots on  goal.  PLAYER

Davis, Cameron named All‐Stars: Midfielder Brad Davis and former Dynamo defender Geoff Cameron were named to the  inactive roster for the 2012 MLS All‐Star Game. The Dynamo pair were among a group of 13 players named All‐Stars that  did not compete in MLS’ 3‐2 win against Chelsea FC on July 25. The 13 inactive All‐Stars were voted on by the players. It is  the fourth straight year that Davis is an All‐Star, and his fifth selection overall.

• • •

Philadelphia Union have won 10, drawn six and lost 15 of their 31 MLS games this season and sit eighth in the Eastern Conference. Since being named interim team manager on June 13th John Hackworth has led the Union to an 8-84 record in MLS regular season games. Jack McInerney is the Union’s leading scorer with seven goals this season. He is currently on a three game goal scoring streak, which ties him for the team record. Michael Farfan is the Union’s leader in assists with five assists this season. The Union are fourth in the league in goals against this season with 37. Only Kansas City (26), Seattle (31) and Salt Lake (35) have given up fewer goals in the regular season this year. Since the Union’s last MLS game on October 6th, multiple Union players have played on the international stage: Keon Daniel (Trinidad & Tobago) played two games in the 2012 Caribbean Championship qualification, scoring four goals including a hat-trick against Anguilla. He currently leads all MLS players during the international break. New England’s Jerry Bengston (Honduras) is a close second with three goals. Gabriel Gomez (Panama) played a full 90 minutes in a 0-0 tie against Honduras and 74 minutes in a 1-1 draw against Cuba. Carlos Valdés (Colombia) played a full 90 minutes in a 2-0 win over Paraguay on October 12 but did not dress in the squad’s friendly against Cameroon on October 16. Danny Cruz was drafted by the Houston Dynamo in 2009 and spent three seasons with the team, compiling four goals and five assists and a trip to the 2011 MLS Cup Final.

LAST MATCH v HOUSTON DYNAMO

PHILADELPHIA UNION 3-1 HOUSTON DYNAMO – September 23, 2012 • • • • • •

Philadelphia Union ended their longest winless streak of the season with a 3-1 victory over the Houston Dynamo. The Dynamo controlled possession in the game (53.4%) and were more accurate than the Union at passing with a 82.1% passing accuracy rate over the Union’s 77.3%. The Union started off the scoring when right back Ray Gaddis crossed a ball into the box that took a couple of bounces off Houston players and found Freddy Adu on the endline. Adu cut the ball to the right and beat Dynamo goalkeeper Tally Hall to the near post. Late in the first half Houston’s Boniek Garcia hit a strike off the post and in to tie the game going into halftime. The Union’s Sheanon Williams was dragged down by Houston’s Andre Hainault in the box giving Philadelphia a penalty kick. Freddy Adu converted the penalty kick, netting his second goal of the game. The Union’s Josue Martinez scored his first goal in MLS in the 70th minute to round out the scoring on the day.

LAST MLS MATCH

Philadelphia Union 1-0 New England Revolution – October 6, 2012

• • •

• •

Jack McInerney became the first Union player since September 2011 to score in three consecutive MLS games. The Union won their third game out of the last four and moved their record against the Revolution all-time to 4-0-3. At half time the game remained scoreless. The Revolution had the best chance in the first half when, Honduran striker Jerry Bengtson benefitted from a touch of defensive pinball in the Union box before turning well and rounding Zac MacMath only to roll his angled shot straight off the near post. Antonie Hoppenot entered the game in the 60th minute and played agressively up front. Keon Daniel produced another fine delivery on a corner, which McInerney headed into the back of the net at the back post. It was McInerney’s seventh goal of the season, all of which have come after John Hackworth’s appointment as the Union’s Team Manager. PRODUCED BY THE PHILADELPHIA UNION
