Houston Dynamo Vs. Columbus Crew, 2012 MLS: Adam Moffat Ties It Late

The Houston Dynamo are unbeatable at BBVA Compass Stadium, having never lost at their home stadium since it opened this year, but that streak almost came to an end on Sunday. The Columbus Crew were ahead in the 82nd minute and looked set to down the Dynamo, but then Adam Moffat scored to salvage a 2-2 draw and keep Houston's home unbeaten streak alive.

Brad Davis opened up the scoring in the 19th minute and it looked like the Dynamo might cruise to yet another home win, but the Crew had other plans. They played well and were rewarded in the 33rd minute when Cole Grossman scored to level things.

The newly-signed Federico Higuain came on at halftime and really pushed the Crew forward. He added a bit of skill and that paid off in the 58th minute. He took the ball on the counterattack and chipped over the top of the Dynamo defense right into the path of Eddie Gaven, who finished clinically to put the Crew in front.

Moffat had an answer, though. He hopped on a clearance a 25 yards and took two touches to settle before ripping a left-footed shot. That's when he got some help from Andy Gruenebaum, who let the ball slip through his fingers and across the line for the equalizer as the two teams split the points.
