Dynamo vs. Sounders: Highlight, stats and quotes

Sounders had been riding a four-game winning streak.

A few streaks came to screeching halts on Saturday. The Seattle Sounders had come into this game riding an eight-game winning streak against the Houston Dynamo, a four-game winning streak in league play and a two-game winning streak in the state of Texas. It figured to be a very winnable game, especially with the Dynamo having just won 2 of 22.

Instead, the Dynamo looked as dangerous as they have all year and won 2-1. The Sounders must now focus on a tough stretch of games against Western Conference opponents down the home stretch.
