The Houston Dynamo got off to a fine start to kickoff the 2014 MLS season by defeating the New England Revolution by the score of 4-0 at BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston, Texas on Saturday, March 8, 2014.

Kicking off his fourth year on the Dynamo, forward Will Bruin took to the pitch like a man possessed; scoring two goals in the first 13 minutes to lead Houston to their first win of 2014.

He started the game with a goal in the second minute, when defender Kofi Sarkodie passed the ball to Bruin, who deftly shot it past goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth for the score.

The fleet-footer Bruin, who had eight goals in 2013, added his and the Dynamo’s second goal for the season in the 13th minute on a pass from defender Corey Ashe.

The alert Ashe was quick to get a turnover from the Revolution in their zone, and crossed it to Bruin, who skillfully slid it into the net.

It took Bruin a mere 13 minutes to score his first two goals of the 2014 season.

In 2013 it took the former Indiana Hoosier 327 minutes to achieve the same feat.

Bruin was not done for the evening, as he added an assist and a yellow card to his stats for 2014.

In the 23rd minute, Bruin got the ball at the corner of the box and passed it to midfielder Oscar Boniek Garcia, who came into the box and sailed it home for the Dynamo’s third score.

Houston added an insurance goal in added time when midfielder Ricardo Clark shot from 20-yards out and defected the ball off teammate Omar Cummings’ head for the score.

Clark was credited with an assist on the goal.

As the match progressed, tempers flared a bit in the 64th minute when Bruin and defender Darius Barnes scuffled in front of the Revolution goal.

The “indiscretion” resulted in a yellow card for both Bruin and Barnes.

New England defender A.J. Soares also received a yellow card in the 76th minute for a hard tackle.

The 22,320 fans in attendance at BBVA Compass, which was a record for a Dynamo game, were introduced to members of the Houston Dash during halftime.

The Dash, which is the newest member of the National Women’s Soccer League, will begin play in 2014 with their first game scheduled for April 12, 2014 against the Portland Thorns at BBVA Compass Stadium.

The Dynamo will next face the Montreal Impact on Saturday, March 15 at BBVA Compass Stadium.
