HOUSTON – The Houston Dynamo learned his lesson from negative results as visitor and now is scraping the 2nd position of the Eastern Conference.

The Dynamo played a very tactical game almost perfect defensively speaking in which a marvelous shot by Ricardo Clark led the oranges to obtain the 3 points over the Montreal Impact at the BBVA Compass Stadium. Rico’s goal contributed to get the Houston Dynamo their 100th regular season win.

The Dynamo are looking stronger toward the playoffs as they defeated Montreal Impact 1-0 and this Wednesday there is the possibility to reach the 2nd place.

Commanded by Ricardo Clark, the Dynamo displayed a great performance around 70 minutes, also with some difficulties in which the Montreal Impact missed a 1-1 opportunity and the oranges resisted with good tactical discipline.

Houston's goal in the 6th minute allowed to played with Montreal necessity to come back in the game. Similarly, the Dynamo generated many goal chances mainly by Boniek Garcia and Giles Barnes, but Troy Perkins had a great night to end up the game with just 1 goal conceded.

The result was quit tight and the match was even, but most of the time the Dynamo dominated the game. The Dynamo controlled the ball, had many turnovers and has shot-to-goal with frequency.

It was a great Dynamo, fast, confident, and strong. Right now the Dynamo is capable to defeat the Sporting Kansas City having such a great performance like this one and in serious contention for the top of the conference.
