Whitecaps FC lose to Dynamo 3-1 in Houston

Vancouver Whitecaps fell to 1-2-2 on the young MLS season, courtesy a 3-1 loss Sunday against the Houston Dynamo.

Houston opened the scoring in the 37th minute, as Cam Weaver potted a goal off a corner kick.
But the Whitecaps responded right away, as Camilo scored just over a minute later to tie the game at 1-1.  It was Camilo’s third goal of the season.

But Houston re-opened the one-goal lead in the 42nd minute, when Bobby Boswell jumped on a loose ball and sniped it past Jay Nolly.  Worse news for the Whitecaps was that captain Jay DeMerit re-aggravated his injured groin on the play, which eventually forced DeMerit to leave the game.

The second half didn’t go much better for Vancouver, as Houston’s Will Bruin scored in the 76th minute to give the Dynamo a 3-1 lead it would not relinquish.

The Whitecaps were playing without the services of striker Eric Hassli, who received a red card in Wednesday’s 1-1 tie with New England. Terry Dunfield was also not in the lineup, due to a groin injury suffered in Wednesday’s match.
