WIth a 4-2 loss on Saturday night to Toronto FC, the Houston Dynamo’s season is one step closer to spinning out of control.
Just a week ago, the team was touting the return of its midfield trio of Brad Davis, Oscar Boniek-Grcia and Ricardo Clark and fixing the things it said has needed fixing all season. A week later nothing has changed except possibly for the fact that Brad Davis continues to do everything he can to get his team out a slump that has seen them drop six of their last seven games.
In his first game back from World Cup duty, Davis scored the equalizer in his team’s 2-2 come from behind draw against the New York Red Bulls. On Saturday night, Davis scored in the 13th and 30th minute of play to give his team a 2-0 lead but it wasn’t enough. The Houston captain has now scored a point in each of his last seven games.
Since wining on May 17, 2014, Houston fans hav suffered through five shutouts and seen a team which once boasted a stout defense surrender 22 goals against while scoring just six of their own.
As Brad Davis indicated following the loss on Saturday night, the time for talking is over. “We have to get results.”
Hypothetically, the Dynamo will need 50 points to secure a playoff berth. Currently, the team has 18 points and with the games are quickly dwindling, the points will quickly begin to run out.
“The season’s not over, “ shared head coach Dominic Kinnear. “There’s still tons of points of points to go. I think 45 points still to gather. Will we wiin fifteen, I highly doubt that but you have to go into te first one thinking this is the time for a winning streak.”
Saturday night the Dynamo can get some redemption as they face Toronto FC at home and set course on that much needed winning streak.
