MLS Regular Season
CARSON, Calif. – Steven Gerrard has been in Southern California for nearly a week now, and he's already making his presence felt.
ORLANDO, Fla. – Adrian Heath has just one fervent wish for Orlando City’s visit to Real Salt Lake on Saturday – apart from taking a point or three – and that is for no more injuries.
HOUSTON – Consistency was a topic this week for the Houston Dynamo. After 90 minutes of uneven soccer Friday night against the Chicago Fire, the club is no closer to finding it.
Houston looked to be in a good spot following Alex’s opening goal in the 56th minute after a choppy first half. The remaining 34 minutes, however, put the team’s issues on display.
SEATTLE – Playing without star strikers Clint Dempsey and Obafemi Martins on Friday night against D.C. United at CenturyLink Field, the slumping Seattle Sounders were firmly locked in a frustrating 0-0 tie in the game’s waning moments and in dire need of an offensive savior.
They would find one in the form of a highly unexpected source.
D.C. United took the pitch in Seattle on Friday evening looking to break a dubious streak: the Black-and-Red hadn’t won a match against the Sounders since 2011 and hadn’t emerged victorious at CenturyLink field since 2010.
SEATTLE -- It took 88 minutes, but the Seattle Sounders finally broke out of their offensive funk, riding a late goal from right back Tyrone Mears to a much-needed 1-0 victory over D.C. United Friday night at CenturyLink Field.
It’s been a tough week for Patrick Nyarko – but not because of what transpired on the soccer field.
The Chicago Fire midfielder returned to action earlier this week in a US Open Cup match after a nine-month absence following an ACL injury last year, and he then came off the bench to score the equalizer in Friday night’s 1-1 draw with the Chicago Fire.
HOUSTON – Patrick Nyarko made the most of his return to MLS action after 10 months on the shelf.
In his first league match since suffering an ACL injury Oct. 14 last season, the Chicago Fire attacker netted the late equalizer to give his team a 1-1 draw Friday night against hosts Houston Dynamo at BBVA Compass Stadium.
It negated the Dynamo opener in the second half from former Fire midfielder Alex.
