Bruin, who now has four goals this season, has scored nine times in nine career appearances against United. He notched the first multi-goal game of his career with a hat trick in a 4-1 win over United in Houston on April 29, 2011.
In a rematch of the 2012 MLS Eastern Conference championship, the Dynamo took a 1-0 lead on an own goal by United's James Riley in the 80th minute.

Gary Williams has made himself scarce around the Maryland Terrapins men's basketball program, which he ran for the prior 22 seasons. He's been busy completing various tasks for the athletic department (for which he's paid a tidy $400,000), working as an analyst for the Big Ten network and, just recently, making weekly local radio appearances on ESPN 980.

"He played a very good game," Dynamo midfielder Brad Davis said. "And a player like that who's on top of his game is tough to beat."
"This is their preseason and they have taken every game seriously," Davis said. "They don't stop. Look at the Seattle game, 7-0. They are going to keep going. We don't expect anything less from them, and I feel we have a good team that is going to be out there, a good group of guys, and we can make a pretty good impact."
