Mulrooney returns for Dynamo in Chicago tie

[MLS] Cam Weaver and Marco Pappa scored eight minutes apart in the second half in a scrimmage between Houston and Chicago Thursday night. Houston Dynamo goalie Pat Onstad saved a Pappa penalty kick three minutes after the Chicago Fire winger had equalized with a tremendous long-range blast. But Onstad stopped Pappa from the penalty spot by diving to his right.

Fitness problems and injuries have been plaguing Dynamo striker Luis Angel Landin this preseason, but shortly after coming on as a substitute he set up Houston’s goal. He got free on the left wing and bent a cross with the outside of his right foot for the 6-foot-4 Weaver to head into the net.

Dynamo midfielder Richard Mulrooney, who hadn’t played since last July while recovering from knee surgery last July, returned to action as a sub in the 83rd minute.

Houston travels to Austin for a Sunday rematch with the Aztex; the teams played a 1-1 tie last weekend.
