The Houston Dynamo overcame a red card ejection of defender Kofi Sarkodie in the 82nd minute earning a 0-0 draw with the Philadelphia Union on Saturday afternoon in the City of Brotherly Love. The win snapped the Dynamo's winless streak at three as they head to New York for a mid-week match against the Red Bulls.

The Dynamo's strong defensive effort marked the return of centerback David Horst as the orange came through with one stop after another including one from Sarkodie's face thirty minutes before he was shown the red card for delay of game.

Offensively, head coach Dominic Kinnear's squad had no less than three excellent scoring opportunities. Forward Will Bruin hit the post in the 38th minute, Ricardo Clark accidentally blocked away a Horst header in the box on another and then Union keeper Zac MacMath stopped a Clark blast to keep the game scoreless.

The Dynamo head to New York looking to build on this road point before returning to Houston and BBVA Compass Stadium on Sunday April 27, 2014 against the Portland Timbers. Kick-off is slated for 2p.m. CDT.
