Houston were held to 2-2 draw by Dallas down on Sunday at BBVA Compass Stadium. As the table looks today, Houston and Dallas sit 11th and 4th places with 22 points and 28 points respectively.

Dallas started strongly in the first half, when Hedges found the net, at 27 minutes, to take a 1-0 lead into half time.

Orange Crush took the initiative in the second half, when Úlfarsson found the net, at 70 minutes. However, each side looked hungry to win and Dallas then found the back of the net, 90 minutes in thanks to Jesús Ferreira, taking the score to 2-1. In the end though, their celebrations were kept brief, as Hadebe equalised for Houston just before the final whistle. The final result, Houston 2, Dallas 2.

Substitutions for Houston included Úlfarsson, Herrera, Junqua, Avila and Dorsey for Sebastián Ferreira, Memo Rodríguez, Lundqvist, Vera and Zeca, repectively. Dallas replaced Servania, Obrián, Cerrillo, Jara, Tafari and Nanu with Ntsabeleng, Velasco, Quignon, Hedges, Pomykal and Farfan.
