Former Dynamo midfielder Je’Vaughn Watson scored two goals Saturday night, April 5, 2014 leading visiting FC Dallas to a 4-1 win over the Houston Dynamo in the 25th edition of the Texas Derby.
Houston set the pace early forcing FCD keeper Chris Seitz to make one point blank save after another beginning with Giles Barnes in the game’s opening minute of play. Despite the opportunities, Dallas drew first blood. Ricardo Salazar whistled Dynamo midfielder Ricardo Clark for a takedown and pointed to the spot. Michel converted the PK in the 31st minute with a well-placed strike despite Dynamo keeper Tally Hall guessing right.
Clark answered with a header into the back of the net off a set piece delivered by Dynamo captain Brad Davis ten minutes later. Davis’ assist was the 102nd of his career moving him into a tie with Jaime Moreno for fifth all-time in MLS history.
Three minutes later Davis would exit having turned an ankle on a takedown by Watson that led to the set piece equalizer.
Houston continued to push the pace well into the second half when adversity struck again. Dynamo centerback David Horst was issued a red card leaving the Dynamo short a man and turning the game in Dallas’ favor.
Watson converted the 61st minute set piece into a 2-1 FC Dallas lead. Seven minutes later an own goal off an FCD corner made it 3-1. Watson then finished off the men in orange with his second goal of the night in the 70th minute.
“I thought we played pretty well tonight,” said Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear in the team’s post-game press conference. “But in the end it turned out to be a pretty crummy night.”
The loss dropped Houston to 2-2-0 on the season
Centerback AJ Cochran made his MLS debut entering the game in the 62nd minute of play.
The Dynamo travel to Gillette Stadium and a rematch with the New England Revolution on Saturday, April 12, 2014. Houston defeated the Revolution 4-0 in the 2014 season opener at BBVA Compass Stadium. Kick-off is slate for 4:00p.m. CDT.
