United, Dynamo get together for make-up

but Bobby Boswell was perfectly on the line to clear.
• The Dynamo piled on the pressure over the final quarter of the match and nearly snatched the winner, but Tony Beltran -- whose own goal sent RSL to defeat the week before -- headed Dwayne De Rosario's close-range header off the line. Real finished a man down after Chris Wingert was sent off in second-half stoppage time.
• Here's Kinnear's team (4-3-1-2): Pat Onstad - Craig Waibel, Bobby Boswell, Patrick Ianni (Corey Ashe 86), Wade Barrett - Brian Mullan, Ricardo Clark, Brad Davis - Stuart Holden (Geoff Cameron 78) - Dwayne De Rosario, Brian Ching. Substitutes Not Used: Kyle Brown, Chris Wondolowski, Franco Caraccio, Richard Mulrooney, Corbin Waller
TEAM NEWS
• Like his opposite number, Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear went into the final SuperLiga game trying to assure advancement, yet also trying get some front-line players some rest. Kinnear knew he could use Ricardo Clark for the entire 90 minutes against United, knowing he will miss Tuesday's match on yellow card accumulation.
• Dwayne De Rosario was replaced by Brian Ching in the second, after sitting out last Tuesday's match with Chivas after being ejected against Atlante. Eddie Robinson, Richard Mulrooney and Stuart Holden also were left out of the game day squad against Chivas, but played against United.
• "It looks easier if we consider that we can be confident about those guys in the bunch. We have a very complete team, it's a luxury, so we can play with the substitutions," Kinnear said. "To have those guys available, Dwayne De Rosario, Brian and Eddie, outside the field, and ready to play, makes you a better team."
• Still, with a third game in a week and in hot, muggy conditions, finding a way to rest his entire team was difficult.
• "Some guys were exhausted, three games in a week is hard. Besides, we had to travel too. And of course, Tuesday's game against Chivas was physically and mentally draining," Kinnear said. "So we tried some players today such as Bobby Boswell, Craig Waibel, Eddie Robinson and Ricardo Clark. We will do our best to give the guys some rest before this coming up game against D.C. United on Tuesday."
• Coming into SuperLiga, the Dynamo had scored just one goal in their previous four league matches. But they started the competition with a four-goal outburst against Atlante, then after creating a ton of chances in a 1-0 loss to Chivas, hit for three in the group finale against D.C. United.
• Kinnear played Dwayne De Rosario and Brian Mullan up top with Geoff Cameron behind them in the midfield. He had only used that combination up front against Atlante and prior to that, ironically, in the rained out game against United in June.
• "It was all right, I enjoyed it," said De Rosario. "We got a result. I don't think it was easy; it's as easy as you make it. Our work rate (was good), we possessed the ball pretty well. We didn't give them much time to play the way they usually play and that benefited us."
