Houston Dynamo's harrowing August continued Saturday at Allianz Field. Minnesota United came from behind to win 2-1, extending their winning streak to three games.
If the other two teams from Texas in Major League Soccer , Austin FC and FC Dallas, are in excellent position for the playoffs, it's a different story for the Dynamo, who occupy the second-bottom place in the Western Conference. < /p>
The Houston team had collected a small point in their last five meetings and did nothing to help their cause on Saturday.
The visitors were the first to register for the score. Midfielder Corey Baird took advantage of a perfect delivery from Griffin Dorsey to escape at the edge of the penalty area, before deceiving the vigilance of Dayne St. Clair with a lob shot.
Camping third in the West, the Minnesota club had not said its last word. A free kick from Emanuel Reynoso in the 79th minute deflected off the foot of Fafà Picault, who was trying to save the shot, to level the score.
Only five minutes later Luis Amarilla struck on receiving a precise relay from Alan Benitez to turn the tide and ultimately give victory to his people.
