BRIDGEVIEW, Ill., June 5 (UPI) -- Stuart Holden scored four minutes into the game Friday and the Houston Dynamo went on to defeat Chicago 1-0 in Major League Soccer play.
The shutout of the top scoring team in MLS moved Houston within three points of Chivas USA for the best record in the league.
Houston (6-2-3) has won three straight and six of seven. Chicago (5-2-6) went undefeated over the first 11 games of the season before losing two in a row at home.
The scoring play began with Houston striker Kei Kamara running onto a long pass from Andrew Hainault. Kamara pushed it to Holden as he made a run to the top of the 6-yard box and Holden lifted the ball over the head of goalkeeper Jon Busch for his third score of the season.
