HOUSTON DYNAMO vs SPORTING KANSAS CITY BBVA COMPASS STADIUM, Houston, Texas July 18, 2012 (WEEK 20, MLS Game #186) 7:30 p.m. CT (FS-Hou/MultiM; KSMO) The Houston Dynamo and Sporting Kansas City meet for the second time in 11 days Wednesday, when the clubs face off at BBVA Compass Stadium. The Dynamo haven’t allowed a goal in three games, extending their home unbeaten streak with a 4-0 triumph against D.C. United last Sunday. Sporting are also on a shutout streak in their three-game unbeaten run, coming off a 2-0 win Saturday at Columbus. REFEREE: Mark Kadlecik.

It was the second time the teams had met with a trip to the MLS Cup Final on the line (also 2007, also won 2-0 by Houston).  After winning the first meeting ever between the clubs, April 8, 2006 at Robertson Stadium, Kansas City has not won in Houston. The Dynamo have won three of the six MLS league and cup meetings since at home (with three draws).  In league play, Sporting have a four-game unbeaten streak alive vs. Houston, winning the two meetings in Kansas City before the first match draw this year.  Coaches record: Dominic Kinnear vs. KC: P19 W7 L5 D7 … Peter Vermes vs. HOU: P6 W2 L1 D3 LAST MEETING (MLS) 7/7: KC 0, HOU 0  The closest either team came to scoring came in the 33rd minute, when Sporting's Jacob Peterson ripped a low shot off the left post.  Houston had a chance to steal the game late, but it was thwarted when defender Aurélien Collin and goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen combined to stop Brian Ownby’s shot in the 90th minute.  Dynamo goalkeeper Tally Hall had four saves, while Nielsen was credited with two, for their respective shutouts.  SPORTING KANSAS CITY (4-2-3-1): Jimmy Nielsen - Chance Myers, Aurelien Collin, Matt Besler, Seth Sinovic - Paulo Nagamura, Roger Espinoza - Jacob Peterson, Graham Zusi, Kei Kamara (Soony Saad 81) C.J. Sapong (Teal Bunbury 68).  HOUSTON DYNAMO (4-3-3): Tally Hall - Andre Hainault, Jermaine Taylor, Bobby Boswell, Corey Ashe - Luiz Camargo (Warren Creavalle 66), Adam Moffat, Brad Davis - Boniek Garcia, Will Bruin (Brian Ching 66), Macoumba Kandji (Brian Ownby 80). HOUSTON DYNAMO The Houston Dynamo extended their undefeated streak to four games overall, rolling to a 4-0 win against a 10-man D.C. United on Sunday evening at BBVA Compass Stadium. The Dynamo are in fifth place in the Eastern Conference with 28 points from 19 games.

MLS GAME INFORMATION

LAST MATCH  The match turned quickly. In the 17th minute, United 'keeper Bill Hamid charged out to cut down a Mac Kandji sprint in the box and took down the Dynamo striker, and referee Jasen Anno immediately pointed to the spot and also showed Hamid a red card. Brad Davis stepped up to rip the spot kick past a newly introduced Joe Willis.  The Dynamo struck again just before halftime. After Boniek García played Luiz Camargo to the end line, the Brazilian took a touch and slid a pass past a lunging Willis, leaving an easy tap-in for a streaking Will Bruin.  Houston made it 3-0 in the 62nd minute when Davis set Andre Hainault up on the right flank to deliver a wellcrafted cross to a waiting García, and the Dynamo Designated Player headed home his first MLS goal.  The Dynamo capped the night after Anno pointed to spot again in the 88th minute when Danny Cruz took down Calen Carr at the end line. Brian Ching stepped up to convert the second penalty of the night for the home side.  Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear made one change to the team that reached a scoreless draw with Sporting Kansas City at Livestrong Sporting Park. Geoff Cameron came back into the midfield, in place of Adam Moffat.  HOUSTON DYNAMO (4-3-3): Tally Hall - Andre Hainault, Jermaine Taylor, Bobby Boswell, Corey Ashe - Luiz Camargo, Geoff Cameron, Brad Davis (Je-Vaughn Watson 73) - Boniek Garcia, Will Bruin (Brian Ching 64), Macoumba Kandji (Calen Carr 64) TEAM NEWS  The Dynamo have now gone eight league games without loss at BBVA Compass Stadium (5-0-3) and haven’t lost in league play at home in 17 matches, since June 18, 2011.  The four-game undefeated run coincides with Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear’s shift to a 4-3-3 tactical scheme – which also saw the introduction of Garcia to the first XI.  “We are still trying to find our way through the system. Sometimes it seems like we know what we are doing and sometimes it seems like we are neither here nor there,” said Kinnear. “Both Mac and Oscar [Boniek Garcia] are a little bit different. Mac is dangerous running behind and Oscar causes trouble when he has the ball at his feet.”  Will Bruin scored his 10th goal of the season, pulling into a tie for third place in the MLS Golden Boot standings.  “We finished our chances and we’re starting to click in this formation and that’s a good thing,” said Bruin. “After not scoring in the last two games, it felt good to put four on the board – whether it’s against 10 men or not.” Said Macoumba Kandji: “This formation, we’re trying to get space on the wing. Today is the best that we’ve shown that and hopefully we keep on doing it.”  Honduran international Boniek Garcia scored his first MLS goal, having made four consecutive starts for the club.  “The space has to be created. It's part of my game plan. Luckily for me, there is a good understanding between my teammates and I. I'm blessed in the fact that they understand me, they know what I'm about and they help me create that space,” said Garcia.  The Dynamo have also recorded shutouts in three consecutive matches, and have seven clean sheets for the season. All have come in consecutive matches (back-to-back shutouts twice earlier).  "I think it's a group thing. They didn't have too many looks on goal. I think it's the whole team unit. Everyone is together,” said goalkeeper Tally Hall. “It's a team goal and when the team accomplishes that it's a beautiful thing. Goalkeepers get a lot of credit for shutouts but I can't take too much credit with the way the team is playing in front of me.”  It was the second consecutive year – and third in the last four – the Dynamo have scored four goals in a win against D.C. United. It was the club’s largest margin of victory in a league game since a 4-0 win against Chivas USA on Aug. 20, 2008 at Robertson Stadium.  “We talked about it before the game, as soon as he plays it, we could play a give-and-go and they’d have to deal with his speed,” fullback Corey Ashe said of Kandji. “Danny [Cruz] and [Chris] Pontius had to tuck in and, when the ball was on the right, Andre would have time and space, and when it was on the left, I’d have time and space. It was just isolating and keeping them moving. Even if we didn’t have the ball, they had to respect and it kind of wore them down.” SPORTING KANSAS CITY Sporting Kansas City regained the top spot in the Eastern Conference, knocking off the Columbus Crew 2-0 on Saturday evening at Crew Stadium. Sporting now have 36 points from 19 matches. LAST MATCH  The combination of Peterson and Peterson put Sporting into the lead in the sixth minute. Peterson Joseph threaded a perfect through-ball between three defenders near the top of the box for Jacob Peterson, and he cleanly slotted home past goalkeeper Andy Gruenebaum.  SKC put the game away with eight minutes remaining. On a quick counter after a midfield interception, Kei Kamara slid a centering pass for Teal Bunbury to drive home from the heart of the area.

MLS GAME INFORMATION

Sporting head coach Peter Vermes made two changes to the team that played to a scoreless draw with the Houston Dynamo at Livestrong Sporting Park. Peterson Joseph came into the midfield for Graham Zusi, and Soony Saad 81 started up top in place of C.J. Sapong.  SPORTING KANSAS CITY (4-2-3-1): Jimmy Nielsen - Chance Myers, Aurelien Collin, Matt Besler, Seth Sinovic - Paulo Nagamura, Roger Espinoza - Kei Kamara, Peterson Joseph (Michael Thomas 72), Jacob Peterson (C.J. Sapong 38) - Soony Saad (Teal Bunbury 52). TEAM NEWS  After losing back-to-back games, Sporting have now won two of their last three in a three-game unbeaten run – both victories coming away from Livestrong Sporting Park.  “I think we were really solid defensively, we didn’t give much away,” said SKC manager Peter Vermes. “I think it was hard for them to break us down and I think they got a little frustrated. We scored a great goal early on, we talked about finding some seams in behind …in the end we defended very well we really grinded the game out and that was huge for us.”  Jacob Peterson scored his second goal in the last three games – his third of the season – to send SKC on their way to the win in Columbus.  “We came here in the middle of a 10-day road swing and we got the three points which is what we set out to do,” said Peterson. “We scored two great goals and Jimmy [Nielsen] made some good saves back there and it kept them out of the back of the net.”  But there was a downside when Peterson was forced off before the end of the first half with an injury. “I saw him when I was walking in at halftime and I asked him how he was doing, and he said, ‘Ah, I’ll be OK,’” Vermes said. “I don’t know what that means. I don’t think that’s a technical medical term. … He’s a tough dude. I know he won’t prolong this thing by any means. He’ll try to get back on the field as soon as possible.”  Making his second start of the season in the attacking midfield role, Peterson Joseph – the “Haitian Xavi” – recorded his first career MLS assist.  “It was a fantastic through ball to hit Jake’s run,” Vermes said. “Great run by Jake as well, but that was a great through ball. At the end of the day, when you get a through ball and a finish like that, it puts a lot of pressure on them early in the game.”  Soony Saad also returned to the starting lineup after four league appearances off the substitutes’ bench, his second start of the season (first since June 20).  “Having to burn that sub in the first half, that hurt a little bit,” Vermes said. “We also had Soony (Saad) and (Peterson) Joseph that I knew wouldn’t be able to go 90 minutes, so I already knew that was two subs there. So that really put us in a bind, but at the end the guys did a great job and figured out a way to get it done.”  Goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen was credited with his eighth shutout of the season, tying him for the MLS lead with Vancouver goalkeeper Joe Cannon.  “I think they created their chances but unfortunately for them it wasn’t their night,” said Nielsen. “They hit the crossbar and had another few good chances but I am very happy with the win and with the way we reacted on the field. It is a performance to be proud of.”  SKC’s Roger Espinoza left following the weekend’s matches to join the Honduras team for the 2012 London Olympic Games.

DYNAMO NOTES   

Dynamo rout United with four‐star performance: The Dynamo made the most of a man advantage on Sunday, scoring four  goals after D.C. goalkeeper Bill Hamid was sent off in the 17th minute for a rash challenge on Macoumba Kandji in the box.  Brad Davis (penalty), Will Bruin, Boniek Garcia and Brian Ching (penalty) would each score for the Dynamo in the 4‐0  win. Houston goalkeeper Tally Hall earned his third consecutive shutout as the Dynamo took the season series, with two  wins in three games over United.  

Lopsided victory: Sunday’s 4‐0 win marked the first time the Dynamo have scored four goals in a game since April 29,  2011, when they beat D.C. United, 4‐1, at Robertson Stadium. It was Houston’s largest margin of victory in a regular season  match since Aug. 20, 2008, when it defeated Chivas USA, 4‐0, at Robertson Stadium.    

    

Three’s Company (shutouts): The Dynamo have recorded three consecutive shutouts for the first time since May 30 – June  10, 2009, when they earned three shutout wins versus Toronto FC, Chicago and Chivas USA. 

Scoreless Streak: The Dynamo have a long way to go to approach their club and MLS record for minutes without allowing  a goal. The 2007 championship club set a MLS record by playing 727 minutes without allowing a goal. The streak started  on 6/10/07 in a 2‐1 win vs. Columbus and included eight shutouts before the streak ended in a 3‐3 draw with New England  on 7/22/11. Pat Onstad was in goal for 524 of the minutes, while Zach Wells kept the streak alive with 180 minutes in net. 

Ching ties Wolff, McBride for 12th on MLS all‐time goal list: Dynamo forward Brian Ching scored his 80th career MLS  regular season goal with his penalty on Sunday. Ching moved past Preki and is now tied with Josh Wolff (still active with  D.C. United) and Brian McBride for 12th on the all‐time scoring list. Ching is now two goals away from tying Raul Diaz  Arce, who is next on the chart with 82 goals.    

Bruin hits ten goals: Dynamo forward Will Bruin scored his tenth goal of the season on Sunday vs. United, finishing into  an empty net off a great feed from Luiz Camargo. The second‐year forward is now tied for third in the MLS Golden Boot  race with Alvaro Saborio of Real Salt Lake. San Jose striker Chris Wondolowski leads MLS with 17 goals.  

Hall surpasses 2011 shutout total: With his seventh clean sheet of the season on Sunday against D.C. United, Tally Hall  eclipsed his shutout total of six from 2011. Hall is tied for third in the league in shutouts with Nick Rimando of Real Salt  Lake. Jimmy Nielsen (SKC) and Joe Cannon (VAN) are tied for the league lead with eight shutouts. Goalkeeper Pat Onstad  set a franchise record with 11 shutouts in 2007, when the club had a total of 13 clean sheets in 30 regular season games.  

Davis nears eighth on MLS assist chart: Dynamo midfielder Brad Davis recorded his 85th regular season assist on Sunday.  With his next assist, Davis will tie Andy Williams for eighth on the league’s all‐time assist chart. Dynamo assistant coach  Steve Ralston is the all‐time leader, with 135 assists.  

Dynamo newcomer Boniek García scores first MLS to continue strong start: Honduran midfielder Boniek García scored  his first MLS goal on Sunday, heading in a cross from Will Bruin in the 4‐0 rout of D.C. United. The Dynamo are unbeaten  since García’s debut (2‐0‐2) on June 30 and have allowed just one goal in four games. Furthermore, he has two assists,  including one on Sunday, and has played 90 minutes in all four games. The 27‐year‐old Designated Player signed with  Houston on June 7 after playing for Honduran powerhouse C.D. Olimpia since 2007 after his first tenure with the club from  2003‐06. With García, Olimpia captured the 2011‐12 Honduran League Apertura and Clausura championships. The  midfielder debuted for the Honduras national team in 2005 and has 69 appearances for his country, including five  appearances in the 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup. The Dynamo will face Olimpia in CONCACAF Champions League group  play on Aug. 30 in Honduras and Oct. 23 in Houston.

Homeward Bound: The Dynamo will play nine of their final 15 regular season games at BBVA Compass Stadium in  Houston. The Dynamo are 5‐0‐3 at home this year and have not lost a home game in over a year, with their last home  defeat on June 18, 2011, a 2‐0 loss to the Columbus Crew. The Dynamo are unbeaten in 17 consecutive home games  (playoffs included), spanning the final nine games at Robertson Stadium and the first eight games at BBVA Compass  Stadium. The Dynamo are tied with the New York Red Bulls for the best home record in 2012, with each club 5‐0‐3 at home.  

Bruin in elite sophomore company: Forward Will Bruin is in elite company for second‐year players in MLS. Bruin is tied  for second in scoring for players who debuted in MLS in 2011, with 15 goals in 44 games. Toronto FC’s Danny Koevermans  leads second‐years players with 17 goals while Vancouver’s Camilo is tied with Bruin for second with 15 goals.

East Coast Bias: The Dynamo are currently six games into a stretch of 14 consecutive games against Eastern Conference  teams.  Houston has eight games remaining on the Eastern stretch and is 3‐3‐6 overall vs. the Eastern Conference. The next  time the Dynamo face a team from the Western Conference is Sept. 6, when they host Real Salt Lake.  

More Bruin: Bruin now has 15 regular season goals in his two‐year career. Bruin is tied with Stuart Holden for fourth on  the franchise list. Dwayne De Rosario (24 goals) is next on the franchise list.  

Cameron makes 100th start vs. D.C.: Geoff Cameron made his 100th regular season start for the Dynamo on Sunday vs.  D.C. United. He is the sixth player in franchise history to make 100 regular season starts.   

Ching passes Ralston on game‐winning goals list: Ching’s goal on June 30 vs. Philadelphia marked his 20th career MLS  regular season game‐winning goal. The game‐winner moved Ching past Dynamo assistant coach Steve Ralston, New York  forward Kenny Cooper and Roy Lassiter for 12th on the all‐time chart.  

Davis passes De Ro for second on Dynamo scoring list: Brad Davis’ goal in the first half on June 30 was his 25th regular  season goal with the Dynamo. He moved past Dwayne De Rosario into second on the franchise list.  

Bruin in historic Dynamo territory: Bruin’s 10 goals are the most for a Dynamo player since Brian Ching set a franchise  record with 13 goals in 2008. Bruin reached 9 goals in the fastest number of games (15) in team history. Ching reached 9  goals in Houston’s 16th game in 2006, but Ching missed six of those games due to U.S. men’s national team duties for the  2006 World Cup. Ching scored his ninth goal of 2006 in his tenth game of the season. Bruin’s first 9 goals in 2012 came in a  12‐game stretch (April 15 at Chicago to June 23 at Montreal). The next two best goal‐scoring stretches in Dynamo history are  Ching in 2008, when he scored 9 goals in his first 18 games played (the 9 goals came in a 12‐game stretch) and Dwayne De  Rosario, who scored 9 goals in a 21‐game span in 2006.  

Three in a row for Bruin: Will Bruin scored in three consecutive games (6/16, 6/20, 6/23) for the second time this season  (4/15, 4/21, 4/28), with four goals in each three‐game scoring streak. He is the first Dynamo player with a pair of three‐ game scoring streaks in the same season, and just the second player to record two streaks overall (Ching). His current  streak marks the sixth time a Dynamo player has scored in three consecutive games (Bruin 2012 (twice); Ching 2006, 2008;  Joseph Ngwenya 2007; Stuart Holden 2009). No Dynamo player has ever scored in four consecutive games.  

Boswell is Mr. Reliable: Dynamo defender Bobby Boswell has played full time in 29 consecutive MLS matches (playoffs  included) dating to Sept. 14, 2011 at Columbus. The center back is the only Dynamo field player to play every minute of  every MLS game in 2012. Boswell has now started 130 regular season games with the Dynamo and is now third on the  franchise list for regular season starts.  

Possession: The Dynamo have won the possession battle in 15 of 19 games on the season. The Dynamo enjoyed their  largest percentage of possession this season on Sunday, with 67%. Houston lost the possession battle to Sporting KC on July  7, 50.2%‐49.8%, had 61% possession vs. Chicago on July 3, 55% vs. Philadelphia, lost the possession battle, 53‐47%, at  Montreal, had 63% possession vs. Toronto, 54% against FC Dallas, 54% at Vancouver, 60% vs. LA, 62% at New England,  60% vs. Portland, 56% vs. D.C., 53% at New York, 54% at D.C., a 49‐51% disadvantage at Columbus, 55% at Chicago, 56% at  Seattle, a disadvantage (48‐52%) at San Jose, and 53% at Chivas USA.  

Dynamo productive in final 15 minutes: Ching’s goal in the 89th minute on Sunday was Houston’s seventh goal in the  final 15 minutes of games this year. The Dynamo are in tied for fourth in the league in goals scored in the final 15 minutes  (San Jose leads with 13). Last year, Houston scored 14 goals in the final 15 minutes of games, the second most in MLS  (Seattle). 

Dynamo are defensive in final 15 minutes: Houston has allowed the fewest goals in MLS (1) after the 75th minute. The  only goal conceded by Houston in the final quarter hour was June 10 at Vancouver, when Jordan Harvey scored in the 88th  minute.   

    

Ching ties Mullan for second on assists chart: With his assist on June 23 at Montreal, Brian Ching reached 19 regular  season assists with the Dynamo to move into a tie for second with Brian Mullan on the franchise list.

First Comeback Win: The Dynamo recorded a 2‐1 win on May 26 over the LA Galaxy for their first come‐from‐behind win  of the season. Prior to the Galaxy game, the Dynamo were 0‐3‐1 on the season when allowing the first goal of the game. 

Daytime Dominance: Houston’s 3‐1 loss at Vancouver on June 10 was its first loss in a day game this season, with its record  dropping to 4‐1. The Dynamo have daytime wins over Chivas USA, San Jose, D.C. United and the Galaxy. The Dynamo are  2‐4‐5 at night, but eight of the 11 night games have been on the road. Houston has two more day games this season (July 28  at Toronto FC and Sept. 29 at Philadelphia).          

    

Cameron’s streak ends: Geoff Cameron missed the May 26 game with the Galaxy while playing for the U.S. in its 5‐1 win  over Scotland. It was the first MLS game that Cameron missed since May 4, 2011 vs. Colorado. Prior to May 26, Cameron  had started and played full time in 40 consecutive matches (playoffs included), the longest streak among Houston field  players in team history. Cameron played 3,576 consecutive minutes in MLS play (playoffs included) before his latest  absence. In a similar feat, Brad Davis’ streak of 45 consecutive starts was broken at Chicago on April 15 due to a calf strain.  

BBVA Compass Stadium opener: The Dynamo opened the 13th soccer‐specific stadium in Major League Soccer on May 12.  On a gorgeous, 82‐degree day in front of a sell‐out crowd of 22,039, the Dynamo honored past legends, including Wade  Barrett, Pat Onstad, Eddie Robinson and Craig Waibel in a pregame ceremony that included the unveiling of 2006 and  2007 MLS Cup championship banners. Brad Davis provided a signature opening moment, delivering a beautiful, curling 30‐ yard strike for the game‐winning goal in the 67th minute.  

Clutch: Luiz Camargo’s 87th‐minute equalizer at New England on May 19 was Houston’s third late goal on the road this  season. Brian Ching’s equalizer in the 81st minute at Columbus on April 21 and Hainault’s game‐winner two minutes into  stoppage time at Chivas USA on March 11 were also reminiscent of 2011 for the Dynamo. Last year, Houston scored 14  goals in the final 15 minutes of games, the second most in MLS (Seattle).  

Six years after the club’s first match on April 2, 2006, only two players remain on the Dynamo roster: Brian Ching and Brad  Davis. Defender Eddie Robinson retired in January and joined the front office as an assistant coach with the team’s Youth  Academy and as a color analyst on TV broadcasts.
