When we last met: Houston Dynamo mercifully ended D.C. United's 2013 season

The last time D.C. United took on the Houston Dynamo, the latter end the 2013 season for the former.

Down the stretch of the 2013 season, it was still possible for the Houston Dynamo to drop out of the playoffs. Even on the last day that possibility was there, with the Chicago Fire and the Montreal Impact both within striking distance. However, playing D.C. United on the last day of the regular season was a boon for the Dynamo, and one of which they took advantage, winning 2-1.

On the other side of the field, it ended for D.C. United one of the worst seasons in MLS history and allowed us as fans to immediately turn our eyes to the offseason rebuiling project. Kyle Porter's goal in this game ensured that United would not share in the record for fewest goals scored in an MLS season, saving United from one in a long list of dubious records set that season. Dwayne De Rosario's muffed shot was a microcosm of United's season as a whole.

Enjoy the video, and enjoy the fact that, while we are not as far along as we would like D.C. United to be, we have come a long way since last year.
