HOUSTON (AP) – Danny Cruz and Geoff Cameron scored to lead the Houston Dynamo to a 2-0 win over Toronto FC on Saturday night.
Houston extended its unbeaten streak to three games but won its first game since a victory over Chivas USA on June 11. Toronto FC (3-9-9) lost its second straight and fourth in its last five games.
Cruz gave Houston (5-6-8) a 1-0 lead in the 50th minute. Taking a give-and-go from Brian Ching at midfield, Cruz dribbled into the right box on a breakaway and fired a shot from 8 yards out that went off the leg of Stefan Frei and inside the far post.
Cameron sent a blast into the center of the net from 8 yards out in the 81st minute to make it 2-0.
