Houston Dynamo was left frustrated on Wednesday night as they gave away the latest of equalizers to Seattle Sounders at BBVA Compass Stadium. In stoppage time, Seattle managed a stunning goal to steal a point from Houston in a 1-1 draw.
As has been the norm under Wade Barrett, Houston Dynamo played defensively for much of the match, looking to hold Seattle back. For over 90 minutes that tactic worked, but in stoppage time Nicolas Lodeiro finally broke through with his strong strike after creating space for himself.
The first half was phenomenally defensive from both sides as neither side wanted to give up any chances that could prove fatal. That left the fans that showed up to a midweek match frustrated, and continues to make a struggling Dynamo side an attractive ticket option in a competitive Houston marketplace.
Fans didn’t really have anything to get excited about until well after the hour mark as Houston Dynamo opened the scoring in the 75th minute. Dynamo striker Andrew Wenger, only on the park for 15 minutes, was able to find the goal. Alex stole possession, allowing him to set up Dynamo midfielder Ricardo Clark who gave the ball to Wenger who shot powerfully across the face and in to the back of the net.
Dynamo thought that would be the game winner but Seattle pushed, immediately after going behind and eventually that pressure told. Just moments away from the final whistle, Lodeiro was able to create the space and score with a perfect finish to steal a point from Houston for Seattle.
