HOUSTON (AP) Will Bruin scored his ninth goal of the season and the Houston Dynamo got a late own goal in a 2-0 victory over the Philadelphia Union on Friday night.

Bruin scored off Giles Barnes' cross in the 51st minute to give Houston (7-12-4) the lead. Goalkeeper Andre Blake - making his MLS debut - guarded the near post to guard against Barnes, leaving an open net for Bruin.

Philadelphia's best chance of the second half came when Fred slipped a ball inside to Andrew Wenger, but his shot was saved by goalkeeper Tally Hall. Houston's ensuing counter-attack forced Blake to make two diving saves against Bruin.

Omar Cummings' cross deflected off Philadelphia defender Raymon Gaddis and rolled into the net in the 90th minute.

Philadelphia (6-9-9) had its five game undefeated streak ended.
