The Houston Dynamo fell short in their bid to make it to three straight MLS Cup finals in 2013, but with a veteran group with plenty of talent, and Dom Kinnear at the reins, Houston could make another push at a final despite the fact the team had a largely uneventful offseason.

Philadelphia Union dropped a disappointing decision to Houston Dynamo by the final score of 1-0. Former U.S. international Ricardo Clark scored the winning tally off of a header assisted by U.S. international Brad Davis in the 53rd minute.

The Union had a goal by Keon Daniel free kick disallowed due to a dubious refereeing decision wherein referee Mark Kadlecik ruled him offside.

The Houston Dynamo looked like a team in danger of falling out of the playoff picture, but if we have learned anything over the years, it is that you can never count the Dynamo out when the post-season is approaching.

The Dynamo snapped a four-match winless streak, and catapulted into fourth place in the Eastern conference, on the strength of a 1-0 victory over the Philadelphia Union on Saturday night at PP&L Park.

I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed:
And on the pedestal these words appear:
"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!

"Coming out of a three and a half weeks of training camp I think the guys showed a lot of quality a lot of effort and they got rewarded with a win," a satisfied Jurgen Klinsmann said after the game.

As Buzz Carrick so eloquently put it in his fine piece from several weeks ago about the lineage of soccer numbers, the No. 10 will always hold a special place in the lore of the beautiful game. And it's no different in the history of the Dallas Burn/FC Dallas.

David Ferreira, who won the MLS MVP in 2010, has worn those storied digits since arriving in Frisco in 2009, but he's one of several big names to wear the number over the past decade-plus.

Hyndman a bit surprised at quantity of set-piece goals for FCD

Officially, FC Dallas has already scored six goals off set pieces this season-three off corner kicks and the other three coming off free kicks. But if one were to count the own goal by Vancouver in the 2-2 draw at BC Place on April 27, then that total would balloon to seven.

Schellas Hyndman is of course no different than any other soccer coach no matter the level of competition in that he wants to see his club be quite formidable in set-piece situations, something FCD has already accomplished even in the early stages of the 2013 MLS season.

The Fire's last trip to Houston on April 14 resulted in a 2-1 loss to the team that eliminated them from the playoffs last season. The Fire played relatively well in that game and if not for two individual plays by Brad Davis, would have left Texas with a result. In April, Davis dusted fill-in right back Wells Thompson to set up one goal and caught a bit of a break on a shot/cross that fooled Sean Johnson and found it's way into the back of the net to provide the difference in the match.

Our top eight teams did not change places this week, due to relative low scoring among the leaders. The high scorer this week was Pajoysonous Offense, with 95 points. The largest chunk of the scoring came from Montreal forward Marco Di Vaio ($8.7M), who scored a hat trick en route to 16 points, doubled by his wearing of the captain's armband.
