HOUSTON (AP) - Will Bruin scored twice and added an assist to help the Houston Dynamo rout the New England Revolution 4-0 on Saturday night in the season opener for both teams.

Bruin opened the scoring 1:04 into the game. Kofi Sarkodie gave Bruin a pass in the upper box, Bruin settled it and sent it inside the near post from 16 yards. The goal was the second-fastest in Houston history, behind Craig Waibel’s goal at 47 seconds against Colorado on Oct. 14, 2006.

Bruin made it 2-0 in the 13th minute, taking a cross from Corey Ashe and one-timing it into the center net from the upper right goalkeeper’s box.
