The last time the Houston Dynamo faced Panamanian side Arabe Unido, there were five red cards issued in the match. On Tuesday, red cards weren't raining. It was only raining Dynamo goals.
Houston had four different players score goals, including Stuart Holden, who netted a brace in the Dynamo's 5-1 thumping of Arabe Unido at Robertson Stadium on Tuesday night.
The Dynamo opened the scoring in the 11th minute when Eddie Robinson pounced on a goalkeeping blunder to make it 1-0 for the home team. Cam Weaver made it 2-0 in the 50th, and a 56th-minute red card against Arabe Unido opened things up for the MLS club, which tallied three goals in the final 20 minutes, including two from Holden.
The victory moved Houston ahead of Arabe Unido in their Champions League group. Pachuca leads the group with 10 points after its 4-0 win vs. Isidro Metapan on Tuesday. Houston is tied with Arabe Unido on seven points, but leads on head-to-head results.
In other CONCACAF Champions League action, the Puerto Rico Islanders tied Deportivo Saprissa, 1-1, in Puerto Rico on Tuesday night. The result helps the Columbus Crew, which now sits two points clear of Saprissa for second place in its group with a match in hand. Columbus faces Cruz Azul tonight at Crew Stadium.
What did you think of Houston's performance? Starting to believe that the Dynamo can make a strong run in Champions League play? Glad to see Puerto Rico help the Crew with a result?
