HOUSTON DYNAMO vs NEW YORK RED BULLS BBVA COMPASS STADIUM, Houston, Texas August 3, 2012 (WEEK 22, MLS Game #206)

7 p.m. CT (NBC SN)

The Houston Dynamo and New York Red Bulls play the first of their crucial home-and-home series over the next two weeks when they meet Friday night at BBVA Compass Stadium. The Dynamo come in riding a four-game winning streak following a 2-0 win in Toronto last weekend, and still maintain an 18-game home unbeaten streak. The Red Bulls are coming off a 3-1 loss in Montréal to start a run of four road games out of six. The teams are separated by a single point atop the Eastern Conference. REFEREE: Silviu Petrescu. SAR (bench): Jeff Muschik; JAR (opposite): Brian Poeschel; 4th: Kevin Terry Jr. MLS Career: 50 games; FC/gm: 27.4; Y/gm: 3.7; R: 8; pens: 7 INJURY REPORT: HOUSTON DYNAMO -- DOUBTFUL: FW Will Bruin (R calf contusion) … NEW YORK RED BULLS – OUT: DF Brandon Barklage (R hamstring strain); QUESTIONABLE: DF Heath Pearce (R hamstring strain) INTERNATIONAL ABSENCES: none SUSPENDED: NY: Dax McCarty (caution accumulation; through Aug. 5) WARNINGS: SUSPENDED NEXT YELLOW CARD: none SUSPENDED AFTER TWO YELLOW CARDS: HOU: Calen Carr, Corey Ashe … NY: Kenny Cooper, Joel Lindpere HEAD-TO-HEAD ALL-TIME (13 meetings): Dynamo 2 wins, 14 goals … Red Bulls 4 wins, 15 goals … Ties 7 AT HOUSTON (6 meetings): Dynamo 2 wins, 10 goals … Red Bulls 0 wins, 5 goals … Ties 4 FUTURE MATCH: 8/10: New York Red Bulls vs. Houston Dynamo, 8 p.m. ET (NBC SN)  The teams are meeting for the second time this season, after a Kenny Cooper goal gave the Red Bulls a 1-0 victory May 9 at Red Bull Arena.  The Dynamo haven’t defeated New York since a 1-0 win May 31, 2008. The Red Bulls have won four of the 10 league and MLS Cup meetings since, with six draws.  The teams have played to draws in their last three league meetings in Houston. But the Red Bulls closed out their Robertson Stadium history having never a regular-season game there (0-2-4) – though they did win the second leg of their Eastern Conference Semifinal Series in 2008.  The Dynamo have never won at New York, with four losses and four draws in eight league and MLS Cup meetings all-time.  Coaches record: Dominic Kinnear vs. NY: P18 W5 L5 D8 … Hans Backe v HOU: P5 W2 L0 D3 LAST MEETING (MLS) 5/9: NY 1, HOU 0 (Cooper 7)  The game's lone goal came after seven minutes. Kenny Cooper raced onto a lazy back pass from Dynamo defender Corey Ashe, and deflected the ball into the back of the net as goalkeeper Tally Hall attempted to clear.  Red Bulls goalkeeper Ryan Meara was called upon to make three saves on the night in recording a third consecutive shutout.  NEW YORK RED BULLS (4-1-4-1): Ryan Meara - Brandon Barklage, Tyler Ruthven, Markus Holgersson, Connor Lade - Dax McCarty - Dane Richards, Mehdi Ballouchy (Juan Agudelo 46), Joel Lindpere, Jan Gunnar Solli (Roy Miller 87) - Kenny Cooper (Jhonny Arteaga 91+).  HOUSTON DYNAMO (4-4-2): Tally Hall - Jermaine Taylor, Geoff Cameron, Bobby Boswell, Corey Ashe Calen Carr, Adam Moffat, Luiz Camargo (Alex Dixon 56), Brad Davis - Macoumba Kandji (Colin Clark 73), Cam Weaver (Will Bruin 61). HOUSTON DYNAMO The Houston Dynamo won their fourth consecutive match, going to BMO Field and coming away with a 2-0 win against Toronto FC on Saturday afternoon. The Dynamo are in a tie for second place in the Eastern Conference with 37 points from 22 games. LAST MATCH  The Dynamo struck just seconds before halftime. Brad Davis looped in a lovely corner to the near post and Bobby Boswell flicked it on to the back post, where an unmarked Calen Carr headed the ball into the bottom right corner.

MLS GAME INFORMATION

The visitors doubled the margin with a late goal. Another Davis run down the left side cleared space in the middle, and he angled his cross back to an oncoming Brian Ching, who made no mistake and slotted home from the heart of the box.  Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear made two changes to the team that defeated the Montréal Impact 3-0 at BBVA Compass Stadium. Adam Moffat and Brad Daviscame into the side, in place of Jermaine Taylor and Luiz Camargo.  HOUSTON DYNAMO (4-3-3): Tally Hall - Warren Creavalle, Andre Hainault, Bobby Boswell, Corey Ashe (Kofi Sarkodie 78) - Boniek Garcia, Adam Moffat, Brad Davis - Calen Carr (Je-Vaughn Watson 83), Brian Ching, Macoumba Kandji (Luiz Camargo 74). TEAM NEWS  The Dynamo four-game winning streak is one game away from the club record, set twice previously (June 3-24, 2007; May 23-June 13, 2009).  The Dynamo also won on the road for the first time since March 17, the second of back-to-back away wins to open the season. They had gone winless in nine road games (0-5-4).  Brad Davis has recorded back-to-back two-assist games and has five assists in the last three games. He is now tied for the MLS lead with 10 assists, with D.C. United’s Dwayne De Rosario.  “Good players find space. When he gets on the ball, he can have a direct impact on the game. He picked up a couple of assists tonight, off a corner and off a running play,” said Kinnear. “He’s playing good as of late and I think it’s one of the reasons we are winning some games right now.”  With Jermaine Taylor unable to travel to Canada with the club for personal reasons, André Hainault moved into central defense alongside Bobby Boswell.  “I’m happy to play wherever. I do enjoy playing center back but I enjoy when the games wins,” said Hainault. “When the team wins on the road and in Canada for the first time I’m really happy so I don’t worry about things like that.”  Rookie Warren Creavalle, who had started the last two matches in a holding role in midfield, moved to right back, where he made his first MLS start on June 10.  “Bobby [Boswell] and André did a great job of winning a lot of first balls and we needed to be there to make sure we didn’t give them anything,” Davis said. “We knew that was going to be part of their game plan and that we needed to disrupt that. I think we did a good job of that and were able to play out of pressure and move the ball and get opportunities and today we were able to take advantage of them.”  With leading scorer Will Bruin out of the starting lineup for the first time this season after suffering a calf strain, Brian Ching made his first start since June 23 and scored his fourth goal this season.  “We have the franchise leading goal scorer coming off the bench for us in Brian Ching so, to be totally honest, we’d love to have Will on the field but as we always say we’ve got plenty of guys that can step on and do the job,” said Davis. “I think Brian came on today and battled unbelievably hard, did a great job and got himself a goal.” NEW YORK RED BULLS The New York Red Bulls saw their quick two-game winning streak come to an end, falling 3-1 to the Montréal Impact on Saturday evening at Stade Saputo. The Red Bulls still lead the Eastern Conference, with 38 points from 22 games. LAST MATCH  The Impact broke open the match early in the second half. First, in the 48th minute, Justin Mapp completed a passing movement with a first-time to an unmarked Marco Di Vaio on the left side of the area, and he put a low finish past New York goalkeeper Bill Gaudette.  The lead was doubled two minutes later when Felipe sent Davy Arnaud through behind the New York backline and in alone on goal. The Red Bulls ‘keeper did get a hand to the Impact skipper’s shot, but it ultimately found the back of the net.  New York pulled a goal back in the 57th minute when Joel Lindpere got to the endline and pulled a cross back for Thierry Henry at the far post, and he lofted a gentle touch over Impact 'keeper Donovan Ricketts as he came off his line.  But Montreal restored their cushion in the 75th minute when Sanna Nyassi capped another passing sequence by rounding Gaudette deep in the area and sliding home from a tight angle.  Red Bulls head coach Hans Backe made one change to the team that defeated Philadelphia Union 2-0 on Saturday afternoon at Red Bull Arena. Jan Gunnar Solli came into the back four for Brandon Barklage.  NEW YORK RED BULLS (4-4-2): Bill Gaudette - Jan Gunnar Solli, Markus Holgersson, Wilman Conde, Roy Miller - Sebastien Le Toux, Joel Lindpere (Victor Palsson 79), Dax McCarty, Connor Lade - Kenny Cooper, Thierry Henry. TEAM NEWS  The Red Bulls had recorded back-to-back shutouts after conceding 11 goals in the previous six matches.

“We didn’t show up the first five minutes,” Red Bulls head coach Hans Backe said. “You concede two goals on the road, you lose the game. Overall, when we got 2-1, it looked quite OK but overall it’s three terrible mistakes. You can’t concede like this. You lose games. Of course, I’m very disappointed.” Jan Gunnar Solli returned to the lineup for the first time since June 30, starting at right back after Brandon Barklage was forced off after just 16 minutes in the Philadelphia match with a hamstring injury. “Disappointment in the locker room,” said goalkeeper Bill Gaudette. “But the season is not over for us by any stretch. We have some important games coming up and we’re back to work. We get back to work and figure out our mistakes and move on.” Joel Lindpere recorded an assist for the second consecutive match, and has four of his five assists on the season over the last eight matches. Thierry Henry scored for the second time in three games, after going nearly three months without a league goal. He is now fourth in the MLS Golden Boot standings with 11 goals. “We are still 11 points ahead. But I think at the end of the day it’s good for us sometimes to get a little slap. They played way better than us,” said Henry. Before the match, the Red Bulls announced the acquisition of Australian international midfielder Tim Cahill, obtained from Everton FC of the English Premier League for a nominal transfer fee. At Everton since 2004, Cahill had made 278 appearances for the Toffees, scoring 68 goals over eight seasons with the club. “He will play as one of two central midfield players,” said Backe. “ …Teemu Tainio (started) against Spurs and I'm really looking forward to seeing these two guys in central midfield. Tim can be the link to our strikers so he'll be involved a lot in our buildup and in our defending.” On Tuesday, the Red Bulls faced Tottenham Hotspur FC of the EPL in a friendly at Red Bull Arena, dropping a 2-1 decision. New York took the lead eight minutes in on a Kenny Cooper penalty, but second-half goals from Gareth Bale and Gylfi Sigurdsson sent Spurs to the win. Here’s the Red Bulls team: Bill Gaudette – Connor Lade, Markus Holgersson, Wilman Conde (Stephen Keel 46’), Roy Miller (Tyler Ruthven 84’), Teemu Tainio (Jan Gunnar Solli 46’), Dax McCarty, Joel Lindpere (Jonathan Borrajo 65’) , Tim Cahill (Victor Palsson 46’), Kenny Cooper (Jose Angulo 86’), Sebastien Le Toux (Jhonny Arteaga 65’)

NEW YORK RED BULLS AT HOUSTON DYNAMO – AUGUST 3, 2012 – 8:00 PM ET

BULLETIN BOARD RED BULLS, DYNAMO BEGIN HOME-AND-HOME FRIDAY IN HOUSTON The Red Bulls and Houston Dynamo will face each other twice in a seven day span beginning this Friday, Aug. 3 in Houston when the teams square off at brand new BBVA Compass Stadium (TV: NBC Sports Network; Radio: 93.1 FM). Just one point separates the two teams for the top spot in the Eastern Conference. The Red Bulls enter the match owners of pole position with 38 points off a 11-6-5 record, while Houston is 10-5-7. Neither team has yet to lose at home this season, with both teams posting 7-0-3 records on their home pitches. New York last hosted English club Tottenham Hotspur FC, falling 2-1 on Tuesday in an international friendly. The game marked the debut of the team’s newest Designated Player, Australian International Tim Cahill. Cahill started the match and played the first half, and drew the penalty that led to New York’s lone goal, which was converted by Kenny Cooper. In their last MLS match, New York fell 3-1 at Montreal last Saturday. Houston enters the match unbeaten in their last seven MLS matches, going (5-0-2). Most recently, last Saturday, the Dynamo took all three points on the road at Toronto, posting a 2-0 victory. Houston’s defense has been a strength as of late, as the Texan side hasn’t conceded a goal in its past two matches. The teams met on May 9 at Red Bull Arena, with Cooper’s early strike holding up in a 1-0 New York win. Houston visits Red Bull Arena in a week’s time, on Friday, Aug. 10 at 8:00 PM ET, to round out the season series between the sides. All-time, in 13 matches against Houston, the Red Bulls are 4-2-7. RED BULLS-DYNAMO CONNECTIONS Dynamo forward Macoumba Kandji was a member of the Red Bulls from 2008-2010. New York signed Kandji during the 2008 season on loan from the Atlanta Silverbacks of the then-USL First Division, and he eventually joined the club permanently. In 41 matches with New York, Kandji started 30, scoring six goals and registering seven assists. On Sept. 14, 2010, the team sent Kandji to the Colorado Rapids in exchange for midfielder Mehdi Ballouchy. RED BULLS FALL, 2-0, TO TOTTENHAM AT RED BULL ARENA English Premiership side Tottenham Hotspur defeated the host New York Red Bulls, 2-1, on Tuesday at Red Bull Arena in the inaugural Barclays New York Cup Powered by Under Armour. New York took the lead eight minutes in, but two second half goals from Gareth Bale and Gylfi Sigurdsson propelled the English club to the victory in front of 21,701 spectators. New York’s newest Designated Player, Tim Cahill, made an immediate impact on his team debut, drawing a penalty kick that set up the game’s opening goal. Sebastien Le Toux played a ball towards the center of the park, and Cahill dummied the pass, leaving it for Dax McCarty. Cahill made a run behind the Spurs defense and McCarty picked him out with a well-placed looping chip. Cahill was ahead of the defense in the box and was taken down by Jan Vertonghen, prompting referee Niko Bratsis to point to the spot. Cooper stepped up to take the penalty and converted with a low shot to the left side. In the 12th minute, Tottenham nearly found the equalizer. New York was called for a handball just outside their penalty area and Bale took the direct free kick. The Welshman’s shot was headed for goal, but Bill

Gaudette made a leaping effort to tip the ball over. Four minutes later, Gaudette got his hand on a Tom Huddlestone shot, parrying it to safety. Tottenham’s consistent pressure resulted in the tying goal in the 59th minute. Substitute forward Harry Kane tried to get in behind the New York defense, but Red Bull Markus Holgersson knocked it away for a corner kick. Sigurdsson delivered the ball into the area and Bale rose above everyone, heading it past Gaudette. It was Bale’s second goal in two matches at Red Bull Arena, as he also scored in Tottenham’s 2-1 victory over New York on July 22, 2010. Five minutes later, the visitors took the lead, with Sigurdsson turning from provider to goal scorer. Sigurdsson received a pass from Benoit Assou-Ekotto near the Red Bulls’ area and turned upfield. Sigurdsson made a move around Holgersson, giving himself space in the box, and curled a right-footed shot over Gaudette and into the top corner. RED BULLS SIGN TIM CAHILL AS DESIGNATED PLAYER The New York Red Bulls announced July 26 that it has signed midfielder Tim Cahill as a Designated Player. Per MLS and club regulations, specific terms of the deal were not disclosed. Cahill made his team debut on Tuesday in New York’s 2-1 loss to English side Tottenham Hotspur, as Cahill started and played the first half. “We are absolutely thrilled to bring in a player of Tim’s caliber to the Red Bulls,” said New York Red Bulls General Manager and Sporting Director Erik Soler. “He is the technical, physical presence we have been looking to add in our team and he brings a wealth of experience to our club having played in some of the highest levels of international soccer. Tim is a proven leader both on and off the field and we believe that he can help us immediately in our quest to win the MLS Cup this season.” “I am very happy to start a new chapter of my career with the New York Red Bulls,” Cahill said. “As we have seen over the past few years, MLS has developed into a very competitive league with many talented players. I am impressed with what the Red Bulls are trying to accomplish in MLS and within American soccer and I am looking forward to this new challenge. I will do everything I can to help bring New York its first MLS Cup.” “I also want to thank everyone at Everton, from the club to tremendous supporters. It has been a privilege to be an Everton player for the past eight years and it was a very difficult decision to leave. I will always support Everton and I wish the club the best of luck in the future.” Cahill, a player who has featured as an attacking midfielder and forward during his career, comes to New York after an illustrious career with English Premier League side, Everton FC, where he had played since 2004. He had made 278 appearances for the Toffees, scoring 68 goals over eight seasons with the club. The Australian was Everton’s leading scorer in his first year with the team and was named Player of the Season. Cahill was also the club’s leading scorer with nine goals in the 2008/09 campaign and served as team captain for part of the 2009/10 season. The 32-yearold became the 71st player in Premier League history to reach the 50 goal milestone when he scored against Blackpool in Nov. 6 2010. Last season, Cahill featured in 41 games, tallying three goals in all competitions. In October 2006, Cahill was named as one of 50 nominees for the Ballon D’Or, given to the European Football of the Year. Prior to joining Everton, Cahill featured for English side, Millwall, where he made a total of 249 appearances and scored 56 goals. Cahill was part of the side that went the FA Cup Final for the first time in club history in the 2003-04 season and earned a spot in the UEFA Cup. He helped his

He appeared in three matches for the Galaxy, posting a record of 0-2-1 and a 1.33 goals against average. Gaudette came to Los Angeles after a one-year stint with the Montreal Impact of the North American Soccer League in 2011. He made nine appearances for the Canadian club.

From 2008-2010, Gaudette played for the Puerto Rico Islanders, then of the USL First Division. He had a standout first season in 2008, winning the USL First Division’s Goalkeeper of the Year award and leading the league with 14 victories while posting 10 shutouts. That season, Puerto Rico won its first ever Commissioner’s Cup for finishing first in the league standings. Gaudette was also instrumental for the Islanders in their run to the 2008-09 CONCACAF Champions League semifinals. He followed up his solid 2008 season on the domestic front in 2009 by tying for the USL First Divison lead with 15 victories and 12 shutouts. In 2010, he backstopped the Islanders to the USSF Division 2 Professional League title. Gaudette began his professional career in MLS with the Columbus Crew, who selected him in the 2005 Supplemental Draft. He appeared in 17 matches with the Crew in the 2005 and 2006 seasons, posting MLS career highs in 2006 with 11 appearances, three shutouts and a goals against of 1.18. Gaudette played collegiately at St John’s University from 2001-04, and spent time with the Brooklyn of the USL Premier Development League before coming to MLS. On the international level, the 30-year-old has earned two caps for the Puerto Rico National Team, debuting on June 1, 2012 in a 3-1 win over Nicaragua. SOLLI SCORES TWO-STRAIGHT After going goalless in 42 with the Red Bulls, midfielder Jan Gunnar Solli scored goals in two consecutive games on June 24 and June 30. The Norwegian most recently found the back of the net on June 30, volleying home a Brandon Barklage cross in a 1-1 tie against Toronto F C. Six days prior, Solli picked a good time to score his first MLS goal, as his 55th minute tally against D.C. United proved to be the game-winning goal in a 3-2 victory at Red Bull Arena. RECORD CROWD The Red Bulls’ 3-2 win over D.C. United on June 24 was attended by a record crowd at Red Bull Arena for a Red Bulls match (25,187). It broke the previous Red Bull Arena record set on Oct. 4, 2011 - a day when the Red Bulls won 2-0 over the LA Galaxy. RED BULLS LOAN HERTZOG FOR REST OF YEAR The New York Red Bulls announced June 27 that the loan of forward Corey Hertzog to USL-PRO side Wilmington Hammerheads was extended for the remainder of the USL-PRO season. The teams had initially agreed to a one month loan for the former Penn State University forward on May 29. While on loan with the Hammerheads, Hertzog has played in seven matches and registered four goals and two assists. Wilmington is currently in fourth place in USL-PRO with a 5-4-4 record. Originally drafted by New York in the first round (13th overall) of the 2011 MLS SuperDraft out of Penn State University, Hertzog had not made a first team appearance for the Red Bulls in 2012. Last season, Hertzog featured in five regular season games. Hertzog scored one goal in three MLS Reserve League appearances this year. BARKLAGE BURNS FORMER CLUB Red Bulls defender Brandon Barklage made his former team pay on June 24, as he popped in his first two career MLS goals in helping the Red Bulls to a 3-2 win over D.C. United. Barklage tied the match at one apiece when he deflected in a Joel Lindpere corner in the 20th minute, and gave New York the lead with a stunning strike in second half stoppage time. In addition, Barklage became the first defender in franchise history to score two goals in a single match. PEARCE ON THE BOARD Red Bulls defender Heath Pearce scored in the 86th minute on June 20 against Vancouver to give the Red Bulls a 1-1 draw. The goal was Pearce’s first career MLS goal. However, Pearce did score his first Red Bulls goal

NEW YORK RED BULLS AT HOUSTON DYNAMO – AUGUST 3, 2012 – 8:00 PM ET on May 29 in the U.S. Open Cup, a 3-0 victory over the Charleston Battery. OPEN CUP ACCO-LADE Despite the Red Bulls’ exit from the U.S. Open Cup in the fourth round at Harrisburg June 5, the competition saw the first two career goals from Red Bulls defender and former Academy member Connor Lade. Lade notched a goal in each of New York’s two Open Cup contests, on May 29 at the Charleston Battery and on June 5 at Harrisburg. RED BULLS ACQUIRE NATIONAL TEAM DEFENDER PEARCE The New York Red Bulls announced May 17 they acquired U.S. National Team defender Heath Pearce, allocation money and future considerations from Chivas USA in exchange for forward Juan Agudelo. Pearce made his debut on May 19 against Montreal, playing 90 minutes in New York’s 2-1 victory. Pearce was in the midst of his fourth season in Major League Soccer, playing every minute of Chivas USA’s 10 games this year. Last year, Pearce, who has played in every defensive position during his career, featured in 30 games, notching three assists. The Modesto, CA native was acquired by Chivas USA from FC Dallas on Feb. 15, 2011 in exchange for allocation money. With FC Dallas, Pearce was part of the side that made the final of the 2010 MLS Cup. In that season, Pearce featured in 28 games, notching six assists. Pearce joined FC Dallas in Sept. 2009 after playing in Danish Superliga side Nordsjælland (2005-07) and German team Hansa Rostock (2007-09). With Nordsjælland, Pearce notched 75 appearances and scored two goals before moving to Hansa Rostock, playing in 31 games. Pearce has earned 35 caps for the United States National Team, making his debut on Nov. 12, 2005 against Scotland. The 5-10, 175-pound defender helped the U.S. qualify for the 2010 FIFA World Cup and was named to the 30-man preliminary roster. Pearce was also a member of the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup squad and started five games in the Americans’ run to the final of the 2009 CONCACAF Gold Cup. Agudelo, a graduate of the Red Bulls Academy, featured in 33 games for New York since he became professional in 2010, starting 13, and scoring six goals and two assists. STREAK SNAPPED, BUT A NEW RECORD When the Red Bulls surrendered a goal to Philadelphia Union forward Lionard Pajoy in the 31st minute on May 13, it snapped a 321-minute shutout streak by Red Bulls goalkeeper Ryan Meara. The streak is a record for MLS rookie goalkeepers, besting Union goalkeeper Zac MacMath's previous mark. MAKING HISTORY The Red Bulls made history on April 7 when they defeated the Columbus Crew by a 4-1 score. New York became the first team in Major League Soccer history to win three consecutive matches by three or more goals. Their victory against Columbus was preceded by a 5-2 win over Montreal on March 31 and a 4-1 defeat over Colorado on March 25. OH HENRY Thierry Henry scored seven goals in a three-game span from March 25 through April 7. Henry is the first MLS player since Edson Buddle in April 2010 to have three-straight multi-goal games. Additionally, Henry’s seven goals in a three-game span is the first such streak in MLS since Landon Donovan did so in April 2008. The last Red Bulls player to have consecutive multi-goal games was Jozy Altidore, who scored two goals on Aug. 12, 2007 vs. Toronto FC, and two more the following match on Aug. 18, 2007 vs. the Los Angeles Galaxy.

HENRY WINS UNPRECEDENTED THIRD-STRAIGHT MLS PLAYER OF THE WEEK AWARD New York Red Bulls forward and captain Thierry Henry won an unprecedented third-straight MLS Player of the Week Award April 9, taking home the honors for Week 5 of the MLS season. Henry, the MLS Player of the Month for March, became the first player in League history to win three consecutive MLS Player of the Week awards. The MLS Player of the Week is selected each week of the regular season by a panel of journalists from the North American Soccer Reporters (NASR).
