Sounders hand Dynamo first loss

The Houston Dynamo started out Friday night's match against the Seattle Sounders looking every bit like a team capable of winning its third straight road game.

The Sounders had other ideas.

A deflected David Estrada goal and a Brad Evans penalty gave Seattle a first-half lead despite Houston starting the match well. The Dynamo enjoyed plenty of possession but managed just two shots on goal, not nearly enough to offset a strong showing from the Sounders in Seattle's 2-0 victory at CenturyLink Field.

It was a night to forget for Houston defender Geoff Cameron. He deflected an Estrada shot past goalkeeper Tally Hall, then surrendered a penalty after grabbing Patrick Ianni in the penalty area.

The loss dropped the Dynamo to 2-1 to start the season, while Seattle improved to 2-0 for the first time in the club's MLS history.

Here are the match highlights:


What did you think of the match? Impressed with Seattle's performance? Surprised how well Houston played in the loss? Think Estrada's goal should have been ruled an own goal?
