At forty-five minutes of play, the Houston Dynamo lead Toronto FC 1 – 0, with Brian Ching’s 18th minute header the difference. So far the game has been dominated by the Dynamo who are primarily attacking from the wings.
Danny Cruz has looked solid on the right side of the midfield, and seems to be filling Brian Mullan’s boots just fine. The addition of Joseph Ngwenya to the line-up seems to have given the Dynamo the much-needed creativity they lacked the last few games.
While Houston have had a number shots on goal and have threatened throughout the half, Toronto has only looked dangerous once when Maicon Santos muffed a one-on-one against Pat Onstad.
The Dynamo will be hoping the second half holds more of the same and that they can come out and continue to dominate possession.
