Houston Dynamo FC broke their losing streak this past weekend with an inspiring 2-0 win over Nashville SC. The Dynamo looked dominant early on, but a first half red card to defender Adam Lundkvist put the result in jeopardy. However, after a penalty in Houston’s favor, converted by Darwin Quintero, and increased pressure by Nashville, the Dynamo were able to weather the aggressive style and take control to win out. This result helped bump Houston up to 6th place in the Western Conference.
