Tonight at BBVA Compass Stadium is Hispanic Heritage Month with the annual “Nocha Naranja” game. There will be many things representing the Hispanic Heritage Month, like Latino and Tejano music, elotes, churros and raspas and other traditional snacks, and mariachi and folkloric performers. There will also be post Fireworks tonight. Tonight the Dynamo need the full three points, after the draw to LA Galaxy on Wednesday night, Dynamo is sitting one point under the playoff cutoff, so a must win tonight is very important. The Dynamo will have to play a strong defensive strategy to make sure they secure a win tonight.
The first half was a little disappointing for the Dynamo, they could not convert on three of the shots, which were the closest they came to getting the ball in scoring position. The Dynamo were playing aggressively the first half, which is what they need to do if they plan to win the game tonight. The score was tied at the end of the half, Dynamo 0 and Minnesota United FC 0.

In the sixty-eighth minute the Dynamo managed to get a goal, #17 Alberth “La Pantera” Elis, with the assistance of #10 Vicente Sanchez. In the seventy-second minute Dynamo made another change, #7 DeMarcus Beasley came in for #6 Eric Alexander. The score is Dynamo 1 and Minnesota United FC 0. Dynamo is still playing good defense. In the eighty-fourth minute the Dynamo scored from a corner kick, #12 Romell Quioto with the assistance of #10 Vicente Sanchez. The score is Dynamo 2 and Minnesota United FC 0.
