It wasn't easy, but thanks to a Brian Ching goal in the 68th minute the Dynamo were able to get their CONCACAF Champions League off to a strong start with a 1-0 win over Isidro Metapan. The club from El Salvador were content to bunker in and let Houston dominate possession, frustrating them for the first half. Ching's second half goal was enough to prove the difference.
In the other game from Houston's group, Jose Francisco Torres went 90 minutes in Pachuca's 4-1 loss at the hands of Arabe Unido. Reports indicate that Pachuca rested several regulars and paid the price for it. That result means Houston sits second in Group A behind the Panamanian club.
Christian Riveros and Joel Huiqui scored for Cruz Azul as they beat Saprissa 2-0, in the other game in Group C.
