HOUSTON, Sept. 6 (UPI) -- A late penalty kick by Colin Clark Thursday gave Houston a 1-0 victory over Real Salt Lake.
Salt Lake's Nick Rimando and Houston's TallyHall made a series of dramatic saves late in the game, but Rimando could not stop Clark's shot that allowed Houston to end a four-match winless streak.
The Dynamo (12-7-9) moved back into third place in the Eastern Conference with 45 points. Salt Lake (14-11-4) has won just once in its last five games, but remains in second place in the West.
The penalty was called when Rimando slammed into the back of Macoumba Kandii in the 2nd minute of stoppage time.
