Ching, Dynamo open MLS season today against L.A.
Advertiser StaffThe Houston Dynamo, the defending Major League Soccer Cup champions, open a new season today against the Los Angeles Galaxy at Robertson Stadium in Houston.
Houston features Hale'iwa's Brian Ching, a forward who was named the MLS Cup Most Valuable Player last year. In the championship game against New England, Ching scored the tying goal in the 114th minute less than one minute after the Revolution had taken a 1-0 lead and scored the winning penalty kick in a 4-3 shootout.
Ching, a 28-year-old Kamehameha Schools alum, is in his fifth MLS season.
Today's game is scheduled to be televised in Hawai'i on Fox Sports Net West (Oceanic 20, Digital 226) at 1 p.m.
