Boswell, Bruin Shine in The Dynamo’s First Win!By: Zach | April 11th, 2011
After a rough start to their season, The Dynamo won their first game at home against the Vancouver Whitecaps. I unfortunately missed the first half which means I missed three goals in FIVE minutes!
The first goal came in the 37th minute and was scored by Cam Weaver. One minute later at the other side of the pitch, Camilo ties the game. And four minutes later, Bobby Boswell gets his first goal of the campaign and gets Houston ahead before the half.
I began watching at about the 47th minute mark and I saw a very weak Vancouver team. The Dynamo kept possession for the majority of the half and defended well when Vancouver attacked (It was rare). The last goal of the game came from the most promising rookie I’ve seen in quite some time, Will Bruin! After making several great runs into the box in the minutes preceding the goal, Bruin got past the defender and Nolly came out of the box to get the ball. Will Bruin avoided Nolly and sent the ball into the back of the net. That sealed the win for the Dynamo and gave me back the hope that I was beginning to lose (forgive me).
The Dynamo will play the New England Revolution at home on April 17th. I’ve seen on Twitter that the Dynamo will be wearing a special PURPLE jersey in honor of Earth day. It sounds like it will be the ugliest thing ever but if the Dynamo win, I will buy one (no I won’t). Until next time…
