The Houston Dynamo won their first road match of the season on Sunday night, defeating the Los Angeles Galaxy, 1-0, at the Home Depot Center, earning them SBI MLS Team of the Week honors.
The Dynamo were without captain Brad Davis due to a one-match suspension for a red card but the visitors didn’t miss him too badly as they shut down Landon Donovan and the Galaxy. Tally Hall saved a Donovan penalty kick and Dynamo midfielder Andrew Driver scored the game’s lone goal in the 56th minute.
The win puts the Dynamo in a four-way tie for first place in the Eastern Conference at 17 points, along with the New York Red Bulls, Sporting Kansas City, and Montreal Impact. Dominic Kinnear’s side beat out Sporting KC, Real Salt Lake, and the New York Red Bulls for this week’s honor.
