HOUSTON -- Brad Davis and Will Bruin scored in the first half, Oscar Boniek Garcia and Brian Ching scored in the second and the Houston Dynamo defeated 10-man D.C. United 4-0 Sunday night to extend Houston s unbeaten streak to four games.
Brad Davis put the Dynamo (7-5-7, 28 points) ahead 1-0 in the 19th minute on a penalty kick that hit inside the far post. Houston earned the penalty after D.C. United goalkeeper Bill Hamid tripped Macoumba Kandji as he was going for a ball in the box. Hamid was given a red card on the play.
United s Branko Boskovic was replaced by backup goalkeeper Joe Willis after Hamid was ejected, and D.C. United (10-6-3, 33 points) played the final 71 minutes a man down.
