Dynamo Stay Unbeaten Through 34 Games at BBVA Compass; 5 Things We Learned
For the Dynamo, continuing their home unbeaten streak to a mere 34 games was their claim to fame. This victory, which tied the MLS home unbeaten streak record, came virtue of a 2-0 win over the San Jose Earthquakes.
Here are five things Hair Balls took from Saturday night's win at BBVA.
5. Barnes beginning to find his groove
Last week, Dynamo forward Giles Barnes cashed in his first career MLS goal. Saturday night at BBVA Compass Stadium, he put the Dynamo up two goals to nil right before the half with a spectacular header.
The second-year forward gives credit to his peers, as he's learning how and when to make his runs onto goal.
"[Brad Davis and I] just locked eyes, we just looked at each other and he knew where I wanted it," Barnes said. "I just tried to get on the end of it; it was a great ball."
4. Bruin ends his own streak, in a good way
While some streaks continued, others came to a crashing end. Bruin's scoreless drought in 2013 came to a halt with his goal in the 17th minute of the match.
The orchestrator of the play was Boniek Garcia, who made a terrific move to dummy his defender and slip a great through ball into the box. From there, Bruin did what he does best.
