Houston Dynamo Beat D.C. United 3-1

Washington, D.C. (Sports Network) - The Houston Dynamo moved out of Major League Soccer's Western Conference basement with a 3-1 win vs. D.C. United at RFK Stadium on Saturday night.

The Dynamo (7-14-5) now sit one point up on Chivas USA at the foot of the Western table, although the Goats have a game in hand.

United (5-18-3) drops further into the hole, sitting last in the league's overall table by eight points.

The home side actually went up 1-0 in the contest when 17-year-old rookie Andy Najar scored his fifth goal of the season. Najar beat defender Andrew Hainault on the play before placing a shot past goalkeeper Pat Onstad just before the half-hour mark.

Houston equalized in the 66th when Devon McTavish was charged with an own goal after deflecting a shot past his own 'keeper.

Geoff Cameron got the eventual game winner for the visitors just four minutes later when he headed home a Brad Davis free kick, past goalkeeper Troy Perkins.

Houston forward Dominic Oduro added a goal in second-half stoppage time to close out the scoring.

The Dynamo travel to Philadelphia to take on the Union next Saturday, while United travels to Colorado the same day in its next MLS fixture.
