OptaDynamo: Alex Dixon. Awesome

Every season needs a moment.

After battling back from a goal down twice, the Houston Dynamo ripped victory away from Real Salt thanks to a tremendous individual effort from rookie Alex Dixon. After Brad Davis' pass in to the box was headed out, Dixon dribbled past two RSL defenders and found enough space to launch a shot that beat Nick Rimando to the far post, giving Houston a HUGE 3-2 victory.

 

The goal not only won the match for the Dynamo but it was the 21-year old's first career MLS goal...talk about one you'll never forget.

I'm really too excited to properly write this match up, but I just wanted to get a post up to celebrate a tremendous team effort and the brilliant work of Dixon.

Everything that's happened up to this point of the season doesn't really matter. The Dynamo have something to build on now as they push towards the playoffs. Maybe this is the spark we've been waiting for.
