San Jose beats Houston 1-0 in Dominic Kinnear’s return
HOUSTON (AP) — San Jose’s Adam Jahn scored and David Bingham saved a penalty as the Earthquakes won 1-0 at Houston in Major League Soccer on Tuesday.
It was a sweet return to Houston for San Jose coach Dominic Kinnear, who led the Dynamo for nine seasons, winning four conference titles.
Jahn headed home Matias Perez Garcia’s free kick in the 54th minute for his first goal in almost exactly two years, and gave San Jose its first win at Houston since 2010.
Bingham brought down Oscar Garcia in the penalty area in the 57th minute but saved Giles Barnes’ ensuing spot kick, extending Houston winless streak to four games.
