Colin Clark grabbed the early lead for the Houston Dynamo in the fifth minute after scoring from a close range shot. Brian Ching was the initial player who received the ball in the box, but lost control after chesting the ball down. Seattle defender Tyson Wahl slashed at the ball in an effort to clear, but only managed to deflect the ball into Colin Clark’s feet. Clark then shot across the outstretched Kasey Keller and into the back of Seattle’s net for the game’s opening goal.
This is exactly the start Houston needs against a strong Seattle Sounders team.
