Yachting: Usa Buys Time With America’s Cup Win

September 22, 2013 HOUSTON Giles Barnes and Boniek Garcia scored two goals apiece to lead the Houston Dynamo to a 5-1 victory over Chivas USA on Saturday night. Also Barnes recorded his second two-goal game of the season, and Garcia scored his first goals this year to give Houston consecutive wins for the first time since July 6 and 13. Will Bruin also scored for Houston. Eric Avila scored for Chivas, which is winless in 13 consecutive road games (0-11-2). The Dynamo its season high in goals to solidify its hold on fourth place in the East, two points behind third-place Montreal. Chivas USA already had been eliminated. Houston dominated the first half and Barnes teamed up with Brad Davis on the Dynamo’s fifth corner kick of the half. Davis bent a perfect kick to the top of the penalty area and Barnes jumped above the Chivas defense. Barnes flicked Davis’ feed down and into the net past goalie Dan Kennedy. Avila leveled the score in the 50th minute when he headed a rebound past Tally Hall. Carlos Alvarez took the first shot, but it bounced off the near post and went right to Avila, who scored easily. The Dynamo responded four minutes later with Barnes’ second goal of the game. Ricardo Clark fed Barnes, who ran toward the net and drew Kennedy away from the post. Barnes slipped his shot into the net for his eighth goal of the season. Bruin made it 3-1 in the 63rd minute and Garcia scored in the 80th and 90th minutes, with the second coming on a penalty kick.

The USA must still win six more races in a row to keep New Zealand from the one victory it needs to wrest yachting’s coveted Cup from the hands of Oracle team owner Larry Ellison. “It was really a great day,” said Oracle skipper Jimmy Spithill. “Sometimes things go your way, and we’re going to take it.” New Zealand skipper Dean Barker described the day as “frustrating,” saying “we know we can win this thing.” In the race that was completed, the Kiwis beat the USA over the starting line and rounded the first mark a few seconds ahead of Oracle. The defending champion snatched the lead back in a cross-over that resulted in New Zealand being tagged with a penalty. Oracle dodge to avoid colliding with New Zealand but jumped ahead and grabbed onto a lead that grew through the pivotal upwind third leg of the race. The USA remained in control of the race and crossed the finish a minute and 24 seconds ahead of the Kiwis. The Oracle victory came in a Race 13 rematch after light winds forced the first attempt at the race to be halted when the 40-minute time limit was reached as the Kiwis sailed unchallenged toward the finish. The Kiwis and the defending champions were nearly even at the start and the USA was ahead slightly as the catamarans crept slowly around the first gate. After days of high-speed racing on the bay, the AC72 catamarans seemed to be moving in slow motion as the teams jockeyed to catch puffs of the capriciously shifting breeze. New Zealand seized a lead that continued to grow, rounding the third gate more than two minutes ahead of the USA. The Kiwis were racing the clock rather than the USA from that point forward, but failed to make it past the final marker before time expired. “It’s a shame really,” said New Zealand tactician Ray Davies.

Houston Dynamo vs. Chivas USA | MLS Match Preview

Seattle, and he scored his first goal since July 6. Brad Davis returned to the starting lineup after missing the New York match while on international duty and recorded his first assist since Aug. 17. Giles Barnes played a second consecutive match in a midfield role, playing an attacking spot with Clark in a deeper-lying holding role. I think having Ricardo back brings a different kind of athleticism into the team, Barnes said. Everyone knows thats one of his strongest points. His athleticism to get in and around people and to get box-to-box and get winning tackles. That allows the midfielders to get a little more forward. Everyones got defending to do. We copy off Ricardo. Hes kind of a mouthpiece behind our movement. After conceding 12 goals in their previous four matches, the Dynamo kept a clean sheet for the first time since July 6 when they also shut out Philadelphia, 1-0. It was one of those nights where the game, wasnt perfect, but you have 10 other guys watching your back and thats what a team effort is, said goalkeeper Tally Hall. We definitely took a couple of punches the last couple of weeks. Its about how you respond, and I think we responded very well to the situation when we needed to. After arriving from Seattle in a trade for Adam Moffat, Servando Carrasco made his Dynamo debut, coming on for the final 18 minutes.
