great chance came in the 50th minute via a corner kick, but Raphael's header

United appeared to score several minutes later when Dwayne De Rosario got to a
loose ball in the box and fired it on goal, but Dynamo defender Cory Ashe made

obstruction in the box and ripped it home.
Driver capped the rout for Houston two minutes from time with his second goal
in as many games as the Dynamo closed it out for three points.
