Thirteen wins in their last 15 games is a precedent that has rarely been seen in the MLS. The Houston Dynamo were just another casualty in this streak losing 3-2 on Sunday. The Dynamo didn’t go down easily as they over came a 2-0 lead to make a game of it. But ultimately, a win is a win and the earned 3 points have given the 56 points, their most since 2014 when they won the Supporters Shield with 64.

The Sounders actually did not have the advantage on shots on the day as they played mostly defense and counter strike. Houston got off 8 shots on goal to the Rave Green’s 6. As well, the Dynamo had the time of possession advantage at 54% to 45%.

In the 26th minute, Chad Marshall would get a header from the middle of the box on a Nico Lodiero corner kick to start the scoring frenzy.

Gustav Svensson would get in to the fray just out of the half with a header of his own from the middle of the box to find net. Once again it would be a perfectly placed Lodiero corner to aid in the goal.

If there were some way to call a “hat trick” for assists, we would do that as Lodiero would again put the ball in a playmakers possession as the 87th minute would see Nico spot Raul Ruidiaz a perfect ball to put the game away.
