In more Tally "The Wall" Hall accolade news, for the second straight week our goalkeeper was named to the MLSSoccer.com Team of the Week. Congrats Tally! Despite the nominations for Save of the Week and the Team of the Week laurels, I'm guessing Hall and the rest of the Dynamo would rather him not be facing 20+ shots a match.
In not so joyful news, there are injury updates on Brian Ching and Jermaine Taylor. Both Ching and Taylor were held out of practice on Monday as Ching got x-rays on his ribs to help determine the extent of the injury. Ching took a knee to the ribs from Bouna Coundoul on Saturday and had to leave the match right before halftime.
As for Jermaine Taylor, he is suffering from plantar fasciitis and says he's at about 75%. He could be ready for the Vancouver Whitecaps match this weekend, but more likely it'll take a little more time for him to recover fully. Taylor hasn't played since the opening match and picked up this injury while on international duty with Jamaica.
The Dynamo travel to College Station, about an hour and a half northeast of Houston, for their U.S. Open Cup Qualifier against Sporting Kansas City. For fans unable to travel, there is a planned webcast of the match on HoustonDynamo.com.
Dynamo Theory will have a preview tomorrow and we'll be hosting a live game thread during the match as well.
