Dynamo wrap up Phase 1

HOUSTON (Tuesday, Sept. 8, 2020) – The Houston Dynamo wrap up Phase 1 with a two-game road trip beginning on Wednesday at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park against the Colorado Rapids. Houston will look to extend their winning streak to four games after closing a two-game stretch at BBVA Stadium with six points.


Houston earned their first comeback victory under head coach Tab Ramos on Saturday with two second half goals from Alberth Elis and Mauro Manotas. Elis scored the equalizer from close range in the 59th minute off an assist from Darwin Ceren. Zarek Valentin found Mauro Manotas for the game-winning goal only minutes after Manotas entered the game as a substitute. That was Manotas’ first game-winning goal of the season and his 50th goal in league play. The Colombian forward is the third Dynamo player to reach 50 goals with the club and sits six goals shy of matching Brian Ching for the top spot.

Darwin Quintero played a large role in both goals by pulling defenders near the box and creating space for the final pass. The Colombian playmaker leads the team with six assists and has contributed to seven of the 10 goals Houston has scored in the last three games. Houston will aim for their fourth consecutive victory on Wednesday and match their impressive run to open the 2019 season with four consecutive victories in their first five games.

Houston won the series between the Dynamo and Rapids last year with a 4-1 victory on March 30, 2019. Both teams played to a 2-2 draw that summer and the Rapids hold a one-game lead in the all-time series with a 11-10-9 record. The Dynamo will face FC Dallas on Saturday, Sept. 12 at Toyota Stadium to close Phase 1.
