The Dynamo scored three times via the air last night in San Salvador, El Salvador at the Cuscatlan stadium fielding a mixed lineup in a 3-1 win in Concacaf Champions League play.
It was clear with the squad picked that Dominic Kinnear picked that he would likely return to a 4-4-2 and that is what he did making a number of changes.
His choice to start Brian Ching and Cam Weaver was smart and reaped benefits early via the air with Ching (12th) and Weaver(19th) scoring to get off to the perfect start.
To be fair, FAS was horrific defending set pieces and crosses and were punished.
JeVaughan Watson (60th) would produce and early second half goal that would make it 3-0 before FAS would make a late push scoring through Jonathan Aguila in the 64 to spoil the shutout.
Regulars were rested, others like Colin Clark, Warren Creavalle, Nate Sturgis, Kofi Sarkodie, Tyler Deric would get needed playing time.
All in all it was mission accomplished in El Salvador and the Dynamo now will battle it out in this group with Olimpia of Honduras who will be a much greater challenge.
Next up is Toronto FC this Saturday night at BBVA Compass Stadium who lost at Columbus 2-0 last night. The Crew got a goal from Federico Higuain who is quickly making his mark in combination with Eddie Gaven and Jairo Arrieta.
