HOUSTON – The beginning of the season could not be better for the Houston Dynamo, winning 2 games in a row playing at the BBVA Compass Stadium. Yet, the Orange team has not been beaten by Montreal Impact in Texan ground and extend the streak of 3 wins.

Despite the Dynamo reaching the final standing last season, the Dynamo did not have a lethal striker who make the opponents be worried about. On the contrary, this season seems to be promising not only winning against 2 difficult teams, but also a great start for Will Bruin who has scored 3 in those matches.

A good team is the one with solid defense, agile and creative midfielder, and an accurate offensive plan. Right now Houston is showing a good balance in every line.

Firstly, Tally Hall is playing his part being a wall back there not conceding a goal in 180 minutes. Noteworthy to say that New England Revolution and Montreal Impact were the second and third best offensive of the Eastern Conference in 2013, scoring 49 and 50 respectively, just behind Red Bull New York.

Secondly, the midfield looks more consolidated with Dynamo emblematic players such as Brad Davis, Ricardo Clark and Andrew Driver. These players understand, convey, and execute Coach Kinnear philosophy. Lastly, previously said that the offensive have found their efforts with some lucky strikes such as the Omar Cummings’ goal against the New England Revolution and the one scored Will Bruin against the Montreal Impact.

Following this further, the Houston Dynamo is the only team to start the season with two victories to become the leader of the Eastern Conference.

NEXT UP: March 29 – Vancouver Whitecaps vs. Houston Dynamo, BC Place, Vancouver, Canada. 6 p.m. CDT, CSN Plus, MLS Live.
