It was a quiet game for both the Dynamo and the Earthquakes as they played to a 1-1 draw.

It wasn't an overly exciting match between the Dynamo and the Earthquakes but it was one that the Dynamo managed to come away with a point from.

The first half was a generally uneventful affair with few chances for either side. San Jose seemed to have a little bit of an edge over the Dynamo when it came to just missing the net. Alberto Quintero had several near misses in front of goal.

The Dynamo scored just before the end of the first half. After two minutes had been added on to the first half Alex dribbled past several defenders and took a shot. The ball went right past David Bingham and into the net to give the Dynamo an unexpected lead.

In the 59th minute it would be Chris Wondolowski to level things back up. He went into the box unmarked and volleyed the ball into the net right past an outstretched Joe Willis. It was the first time that Wondolowski score against his former team.

All told the Dynamo would get off 13 shots while the Earthquakes had 15. Each side managed just three shots on target. Houston dominated 58.7% of the possession on the evening.

Next Saturday the Dynamo travel to Canada to play the Montreal Impact. Fun times.
