Vancouver Whitecaps 3, Houston Dynamo 1

Yes, the MLS is still going on, albeit just a couple matches over the last two weeks. In the lone match of this weekend, Vancouver hammered Houston. 3-1 isn’t that dramatic of a scoreline, but it could’ve been a much worse defeat for Houston, who were missing Geoff Cameron and whoever plays at right back for them usually. At any rate, the Dynamo, who I think I and a lot of viewers expected to suddenly start winning after their long road trip ended, just haven’t gotten it going this season. Will it happen? I don’t know, friends. I don’t know.

Darren Mattocks scored twice and looks like a promising MLS striker. Sure, he ballooned the ball over the bar a couple times, but it seems like the Dynamo had no answer for his pace and strength. Nonetheless, they got back into the match through that most rare of sightings: A Mac Kandji goal, before Jordan Harvey made sure of the points.
