The game in 100 words (or less): Vancouver is a long way from Houston. That could’ve been a problem for a Dynamo team that had yet to see a road point through six games. DaMarcus Beasley made sure to put the Dynamo on the front foot with a goal that turned back the hands of time and, after a shoving match between Alex and Pedro Morales left both sides down a man, Octavio Rivero scored an outside of the foot goal to level things up. Russell Teibert was an artistic passing machine for the ‘Caps, and both Tyler Deric and David Ousted made terrific stops as it ended 1-1.

Three moments that mattered

20′ — Beasley scores a beauty -- This run, dribble and finish is something this man has done many-a-time in his long and storied career.

.@DaMarcusBeasley‘s first goal of 2016 was a great one. #VANvHOU

42′ — Alex and Morales trade shoves, see red -- No reason for this, fellas.

52′ — Rivero scores an attractive equalizer -- A measured, bending shot from a man capable of authoring beauty with his feet.

Outside-of-the-beaut. #VANvHOU
