HOUSTON Will Bruin scored twice and added an assist to help the Houston Dynamo rout the New England Revolution 4-0 on Saturday night in the season opener for both teams.

Bruin opened the scoring 1:04 into the game. Kofi Sarkodie gave Bruin a pass in the upper box, Bruin settled it and sent it inside the near post from 16 yards. The goal was the second-fastest in Houston history, behind Craig Waibel s goal at 47 seconds against Colorado on Oct. 14, 2006.

Bruin made it 2-0 in the 13th minute, taking a cross from Corey Ashe and one-timing it into the center net from the upper right goalkeeper s box.

Boniek Garcia scored in the 23rd minute off Bruin s pass.

Omar Cummings completed the scoring in the 91st minute.

Bruin had a chance for the hat trick in the 62nd minute with a breakaway against goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth, but the goalkeeper made a kick save.

The Revolution lost defender Kevin Alston to a right hamstring injury in the 20th minute.
