45: Donovan Gives LA Lead From Penalty Spot

Landon Donovan scored his eighth goal of the campaign in the 45th minute of the match after Dynamo midfielder Lovel Palmer handled the ball in Houston’s box.

Palmer was streaking back to cover on defense and inadvertently handled the ball in the box when he turned to defend. Up to this point, neither team managed to take control of the game, but both teams had a number of opportunities in front of goal.
