Houston Dynamo 2 Fall at CITYPARK to Close Three-Game Road Trip 

  1. LOUIS (June 16, 2024) – Houston Dynamo 2 closed a three-game road trip with a 1-0 loss to St. Louis CITY 2 at CITYPARK this evening. Dynamo 2 was held scoreless for the first time since April 14, a stretch of seven games that includes a victory over St. Louis at home on May 22. The third and final game of the regular season series between the two clubs is scheduled for Aug. 11 at SaberCats Stadium.

St. Louis took the lead in the 24th minute after the Dynamo backline blocked Brendan McSorley’s effort but the deflection fell to Ryan Becher at the near post for his first goal of the season.

Houston’s first opportunity of the game came in the 11th minute after Ifu Achara dribbled past a defender inside the box and found defender Kieran Sargeant at the far post, but his header was off target.

Dynamo 2 midfielder Sebastian Rodriguez led the team with three chances created this evening. Rodriguez was one of eight Dynamo Academy players or alums to take the field this evening for Dynamo Dos.

Dynamo 2 goalkeeper Xavier Valdez was well positioned to save Cam Cilley’s shot in the 28th minute. That was the only save of the game for Valdez as the Dynamo 2 backline only conceded two shots on targets and blocked seven shots.

Houston’s final opportunity of the first half came off a free kick following a foul on Ousmane Sylla. Captain Diego Gonzalez took the free kick that was ultimately cleared by the St. Louis backline. Gonzalez nearly found the inside of the near post in the 55th minute with a long-range effort that went wide.

Dynamo Academy player Tate Lampman made his first start of the season tonight after recovery from a leg injury suffered earlier this year. This was his second appearance of the season for the future Georgetown Hoya. The defender led the team with three clearances and finished with two interceptions.

Houston’s final opportunity of the game came in the third minute of stoppage time following a shot from Sylla that was saved by the St. Louis goalkeeper.
