Colorado came up with the first big chance of the game 10 minutes in when forward Jonathan Lewis got free for a shot inside the penalty area, but Clark came up with a big diving save to push the ball wide of the target. The Dynamo shot stopper was called into action again in the 25th minute when he saved a shot from Rapids forward Michael Barrios from outside the box.

Houston nearly equalized in the 49th minute off a cross from Dynamo forward Corey Baird that found forward Sebastian Ferreira inside the box, but his effort bounced off the back of his shoulder and over the crossbar.
