Giles Barnes scored twice in the first half and Will Bruin added a goal in the second half to lead the Houston Dynamo to a 3-1 win over the visiting Seattle Sounders FC on Saturday night.
The win was the second in three games for the Dynamo, while Seattle had its four-game unbeaten streak end in US national team captain Clint Dempsey’s first start for the Sounders.
Barnes gave the Dynamo a 1-0 lead in the 17th minute when Bruin kept the ball alive before it reached the end line then fed it back to Barnes, who sent a shot from 14 yards out in the left box that found the upper right corner.
