Dynamo fall to seventh in Western Conference after loss to Austin FC

Posted

Everything started perfectly for the Dynamo on Saturday.

Just five minutes into the game, the Houston press caused a bad clearance from Austin FC and Sebatian Ferreira took advantage. Scoring on a booming shot from 61 yards out with the keeper racing back to try and get to the goal.

For Ferreira it was his fourth goal in four games and the goal was also the quickest scored by the Dynamo this season.

It was also the longest goal in the MLS since 2019, when Wayne Rooney scored from 68-yards out.

But that fast start ultimately would not lead to a victory for the Dynamo, as they fell 2-1 to the Verde, bringing the teams record to 3-3-3 and dropping Houston to seventh in the Western conference standings with 12 points in nine games.

The Dynamo had a chance to make it 2-0 in the 21st minute, when Darwin Quintero got the ball just outside of the box and took a hard shot that was saved on a diving effort by Austin FC’s Andrew Tarbell.

Daniel Pereira tied the game in the 39th minute, when Ethan Findlay found him on a cross from the right wing that he tapped in to level things at one goal apiece.

The Verde then took the lead in the 66th minute, when Sebastian Driussi collected a pass from Diego Fagundez and calmly curled it to the far right post, making things 2-1.

Dynamo goalkeeper collected three saves in the game while Thiago made his first appearance for the club, coming on in the 77th minute.

The Dynamo will travil to Washington D.C. this Saturday to take on DC United at 6:30 p.m. before returning to PNC Stadium for their next two games on May 11 and May 14.
