Dynamo stays in hunt in Eastern Conference

[MLS: Friday] The Houston Dynamo, which has reached at least as far as the conference finals each of the last three seasons, got a much-needed victory with a 2-0 decision over Philadelphia on Friday night. The win was only its second in its last 11 games.

Will Bruin scored his ninth goal of the season early in the second half to break the scoreless deadlock. With the win, the Dynamo moved within two points of the Union in fifth place. Houston is now tied with Chicago for eighth place, one point behind New England and three back of Columbus and Philadelphia.
