Dallas beat Houston by the score of 1-0 thanks to a Jeff Cunningham goal in the 20th min. Cunningham who scored 4 goals vs Kansas City last week now has 8 goal in his last five games and 9 in total to jump up to a tie for second in the league. He also missed a PK in the game that could have added to his total. Cunningham is originally from Jamaica and played briefly for the Jamaican National Team before becomming a US citizen and making a few appearances for the US team. He is 32 years old so hes not too likely to rejoin the National Team but if he keeps scoring like this its still possible. He has 113 MLS career goals, third all time.
Brian Ching left the game at halftime with “fatigue” but it seems not to be much of an issue, as he was just being given rest, due to his extra play with the National Team. Dallas Captain Pablo Ricchetti will miss the teams next game after receiveing a yellow card, his fifth of the season.
