RECAP: Dynamo Rout Revs

The Houston Dynamo kicked of the 2014 season with a 4-0 win over the New England Revolution.

Just one minute and four seconds into the Dynamo's 2014 season and Will Bruin scored. Yes that Will Bruin - and the scoring didn't end there, as the team had three more goals in them, winning 4-0 over the Revolution.

Kofi Sarkodie crossed the ball over to Bruin who sent a half volley into the back of the net. Then barely twelve minutes later, Corey Ashe got a turn over from New England and sent a beautiful cross to the back post that Bruin found and sent in to put the Dynamo up 2-0. Not content to just score goals, Bruin assisted on Boniek Garica's 23rd minute goal. At the end of the first half, a discombobulated New England seemed to find a bit of rhythm  with a few chances from Diego Fagundez but David Horst., Dynamo newcomer, won himself some fans shutting down the chances.

Things tightened up in the second half as the Dynamo weren't able to find as many holes going forward. In the 57th minute Tony Casio had to be subbed off after going down with what appeared to be a knee injury and Andrew Driver came on in his place. Giles Barnes and Bruin repeatedly drew the attention of the center backs for New England, leaving Garcia and Driver open for multiple chances through out the second half, though none came to fruition. Rookie Mark Sherrod made his debut for the team in the 90th minute as he came on for Will Bruin. Ricardo Clark sent a shot in from 20 yards out only to have it deflect off Omar Cummings face for the Dynamo's fourth and final goal.

The Dynamo also set an attendance record at BBVA Compass with 22,320 people in attendance. An attendance record and a 4-0 victory is not a bad way to start a season.

The Dynamo play again next Saturday against the Montreal Impact at BBVA Compass.
