Dynamo 2 bounced back from its first loss of the season with a 2-0 victory over Rapids 2 on Sunday evening.

The victory gives three points to Kenny Bundy’s side and puts them at the top of the MLS NEXT Pro standings for the seventh consecutive week.

Houston Dynamo 2 defender Jon-Talen Maples scored the game’s opening goal, his second of the season, in the 26th minute. Maples’ tally came following a corner kick that was deflected by one of Colorado Rapids 2’s men, which he then controlled with his chest and shot to the back of the net.

The visiting side put up a good defensive effort in the first half as Dynamo Dos controlled possession of the ball, pressed and had plenty of set-play opportunities. Erik Bushey’s squad gained more possession towards the end of the first half but failed to turn things around.

The second half saw a 50-50 effort by both teams, however, neither side presented a real threat. It wasn’t until the late stages of the match that Dynamo 2 midfielder Diego Gonzalez added a second goal in stoppage time to close out the match.

Dynamo 2 will look to earn back-to-back wins when they face MNUFC2 at Allianz Field Saturday, May 14. While Rapids 2 will travel once again to face Earthquakes 2 at PayPal Park Sunday, May 15.

The Story: There's no place like home

There’s no place like home for Houston Dynamo 2, who have yet to experience a defeat when playing in their city.

The Western Conference and MLS NEXT Pro leaders regained its winning ways after returning home from a two-game road trip and suffering their first loss of the season against Tacoma Defiance in Week 6.

H-Town has proved to be a fortress for Kenny Bundy's squad, who earned 12 of its current 18 points as hosts. Nine points were obtained at AVEVA Stadium and three at PNC Stadium, their second home and home of first-team Houston Dynamo.

The team is set to play as visitors in its next three matches but will look to extend its undefeated home-winning streak when they return to AVEVA Stadium on June 11.
