The Houston Dynamo's dream of a soccer stadium became a reality on Saturday, then Brad Davis provided the perfect capper to a historic day.
The Dynamo's brand new BBVA Compass Stadium opened on Saturday and Davis christened Major League Soccer's newest stadium with a beautiful goal to help Houston defeat D.C. United, 1-0.
The $95 million stadium was the story heading into the weekend, but D.C. United reminded the Dynamo they had a game to play, and the visitors gave Houston a real test, with the match remaining scoreless into the second half. Davis provided the difference when he sent a long-range left-footed strike past Bill Hamid to make it 1-0.
The Dynamo came close to adding an insurance goal on several occasions, but Brian Ching missed some clear-cut chances that would have provided the ultimate cap to an unforgettable day for Dynamo fans.
Here are the match highlights:
