Adrien Hunou scores twice, Minnesota United beats Dynamo 2-1
HOUSTON (AP) – Adrien Hunou broke a tie in the 73rd minute with his second goal of the game and Minnesota United beat Houston 2-1 on Saturday night to extend the Dynamo’s club-record winless streak to 15 games.
A run off a long throw-in ended up with Ramon Abila’s heel pass to Ethan Finlay in the box and he slid it across to Hunou for the easy goal. Hunou had capitalized on a poorly defended set up in the 16th minute.
Houston played without head coach Tad Ramos, who left the team this week because of a family medical emergency. Assistant coach Omid Namazi led the team.
The Dynamo scored in the first minute when Adalberto Carrasquilla split the defense to redirect a cross from Fafa Picault.
