The San Jose Earthquakes suffered a 2-0 blowout loss to the Houston Dynamo at BBVA Compass Stadium on Saturday.

The Earthquakes sported their blue and black jerseys in Houston, but were unable to get past the Dynamo in Saturday’s match.

The Dynamo struck first at the 10th minute when Erick Torres Garcia converted on his penalty kick to give his team a 1-0 lead.

David Bingham denied Torres’ free kick outside of the box, but the Dynamo held onto a 1-0 lead in the 15th minute.

The Earthquakes had a couple of chances, but were unable to capitalize on them. In the 31st minute, Marco Urena danced around the Dynamo defenders, but wasn’t able to get his shot past Joe Willis.

The officials issued a yellow card to Florian Jungwirth in the 35th minute.

Urena had a great run in the 39th minute as he tried to get in behind the Dynamo’s backline, but was unable to get his shot past the near post.

The Earthquakes trailed the Dynamo 1-0 at halftime.

The Earthquakes started the second half with a substitution. They swapped Shea Salinas in favor of Jahmir Hyka.

Jungwirth made a huge one-on-one tackle to disrupt a Dynamo counterattack in the 48th minute. Urena had another scoring chance in the 59th minute as he sent a shot into the net that went just wide.

The Earthquakes made another substitution in the 64th minute. They replaced Urena with Danny Hoesen. However, their efforts didn’t work.

The Dynamo took a 2-0 lead in the 72nd minute as Alberth Elis completed a shot at the back post.

The Earthquakes made their third substitution just one minute later. Tommy Thompson entered the match after Shaun Francis left.

Things simply didn’t go right for the Earthquakes. Cordell Cato wanted to cut the lead in half. He had a shot that just missed the far post in the 78th minute.

Five minutes of stoppage time were added to Saturday’s match. Ultimately, the Dynamo held on for a 2-0 win over the Earthquakes. Houston outshot San Jose 13-9.
