The Houston Dynamo defeated 10-man FC Dallas in the Texas derby on Saturday night, and they can thank Adam Moffat for that.
Moffat scored the winner in Houston's 2-1 triumph over rivals FC Dallas on Saturay night in the first match between the two at BBVA Compass Stadium. Moffat's goal, combined with Jair Benitez being sent off in the second half, improved the Dynamo to 3-0-1 in their new stadium while extending FC Dallas' current winless run to 10 matches.
Houston jumped out in front three minutes in when the ball ricocheted off Will Bruin and into the back of the net. The visitors equalized in the 59th minute when Jackson got on the end of a fortuitous deflection and smashed home a shot.
The celebrations were shortlived, however, as four minutes later Benitez was given a red card for an elbow on Colin Clark.
The Dynamo capitalized on the man advantage, as Moffat put Houston up for good when a cleared corner kick fell to him inside the penalty area.
Here are the match highlights:
