Delayed game yields Dynamo a point in Chicago….Columbus Crew up next!/ Over 13,000 see return of professional soccer to San Antonio

The Dynamo missing a number of starters picked up a road point in a 1-1 draw against Chicago at Toyota Park.
The match was abandoned after 66 minutes and each team will officially earn a point. The game also included an additional stoppage 13 minutes in due to lightning that lasted 70 minutes.
It was a tough night to judge but the Dynamo were agressive and lively on the road and still are seeking out more ways to create chances. Still they scored a great goal during the run of play with two strikers combing.

Not try to get the symptoms and quality under flow before they away consume you. propecia 5mg Hyzaar 100-12,5 may even contain majority consumption.

Only one minute in Dominic Oduro was nearly put in by the Fire near the right side and seconds later Patrick Nyarko found him on the left side of the box but his attempt to chip Tally Hall was easily handled.

In the 22nd minute Dynamo goalkeeper Tally Hall with a grand save on Sebastian Grazzini who curled a shot towards the upper corner but Hall made the critical road save at full stretch.

So what did this set up? Just the best goal of the game.

Brian Ching came off the Chicago back four in to midfield to turn playmaker and produced a wonderfully weighted pass between the two Chicago centerbacks German signing Arne Friedrich and Janil Annibaba that found a wonderful run from Will Bruin who took his finish expertly. It was the only shot on goal in the first half so lets just call this efficiency at it’s best.

Three minutes later Chicago would even things up as a Pavel Pardo free kick deflected off the back of Logan Pause who was on the end of the Dynamo wall. The ball got over Hall, hit the underside of the crossbar and went in. A strange goal that has to be considered a bit of a fluke.
Play would continue for only twenty minutes in the second half before both teams went to the locker room.

Additional thought:

Tally Hall-key save on a night of few plays
Andre Hainault- strong in the tackle
Geoff Cameron-broke numerous plays up and got out of Toyota with out injury.
Bobby Boswell- timely tackles out of the middle
Jermaine Taylor- strong getting the start and pushed as hard as anyone to widen the game out
Nathan Sturgis- played simple and smart in the middle for Adam Moffat
Luiz Camargo- showed the signs of subtle skill on the ball that is needed, still to be fair working back into it.
Cory Ashe-tough making adjustment to midfield and getting forward but work ethic made up for it.
JeVaughan Watson- worked on the right but also had trouble getting into the attack
Will Bruin- one chance, one goal has a nice ring to it. Lots of energy
Brian Ching-change that #25 to #10 on this evening as he hits the telling pass for the Bruin goal. Fouled Nyarko when likely didn’t need to which led to goal.
Calen Carr- only played three minutes but led one potential counter attack against former team.

The Dynamo had the edge in ball possession and seemed to have the edge and sharpness in the tackling department with a strong attitude. Will Bruin led the Dynamo with 3 shots out of total of 5.
This can only be looked upon as a positive result heading to play a Columbus team that without mincing words looked poor at Philadelphia in a 1-0 loss this weekend.
The Dynamo are now 2-1-1 on 7 pts on four games on the road.

SAN ANTONIO SCORPIONS
In other news in Texas, the San Antonio Scorpions opened up their home schedule in front of 13,000 plus fans at Heroes Stadium.
The downside here is that they were beaten 4-0 by the Puerto Rico Islanders.
Former San Jose Earthquake Pablo Campos missed two penalty kicks for the Scorpions.
Former Dynamo players Ryan Cochrane and Kevin Harmse both started for San Antonio.
The San Antonio Thunder once played in the NASL and had one former England captain Bobby Moore on the team.

    Thought the guys played well.
    The forwards were solid thought Kinnear needed to sub Ching out earlier in the second half. In Chings defense he was trying to drop back more to help the midfield. The combination play between Ching and Bruin was great to see maybe there’s hope for the forwards and the 4-4-1-1.

    I thought the Midfield play was solid despite the lack of three starters. My main issue is the lack of shots on goal, lack of combination play with forwards and the failure to get behind the defense. Camargo is a defensive mid at heart and does not look to put shots on goal. He has the skills but does not look at the net. Watson gave us a spark in the middle but needs to play simple.I think he could help us if he plays simple. Corey tried but u do not change a player from defender to mid in one match. I thought Kinnear might have made a mistake with this move. Sturgis was solid. I still believe the guys can get the job done and we do not need to sign anybody. The midfield is not supporting each other enought. We made a mistake in letting cruz go lets not make another. Give Dixon and Watson more time the season is still young.
    The defense was solid. I thought we should have had a defender on the guy the ball bounced off of, just bad luck for us and good luck for the fire.

    Opps forgot about San Antonio.
    I always thought San Antonio would be a great place for the MLS. The Dynamo and Dallas should schedule a match or Preseason tournament there like the one in Orlando. Could New England move there?
    The Dynamo needs to have a preaseason soccer tour with some of the player signing autographs and showing the soccer flag in the small towns of South and Central Texas like the Astros use to do.
    Go Dynamo’s

    Can someone please tell me why Brian Ching felt the need to grab the player that led to the free kick where the goal was scored? Watson gave the ball away, but was coming in to make the tackle, and he had defensive cover, so there was no need for Ching to blatantly grab the attacker and bring him down. That free kick led to the goal.

    Just an honest question, but to me, a complete lack of judgement on his part, and that negates his assist.

  4. Glenn Davis says:

    Agree coach that it was a bad foul as JeVaughan Watson was about to commit to the tackle.
    Doesn’t negate his wonderful assist, it just evens it out.

  5. Coach H says:

    That’s ok Glenn, the real news was Chelsea thrashing Tottenham on Sunday in the semi-finals of the FA Cup! Bring on all of UEFA and Barcelona on Wednesday! God’s Captain will lead us through.

    Oh yeah, by the way, the upstanding citizen that has accused our beloved captain of racism found himself in a bit of trouble over the weekend:

    Yeah, what a real winner this guy is! At least he didn’t duck out of his drug tests like his brother did!
