The Dynamo fell to a disappointing road defeat on artificial turf against second-year Real Salt Lake thanks in part to a controversial goal from Chris Klein that appeared to bounce on the goal line. The Dynamo’s lone tally came when Brad Davis set up Adrian Serioux in the second half, but Houston dropped a 3-1 decision.
