  DID YOU KNOW?
  • Andrew Wenger scored his second goal in as many matches and the third of his rookie season against. Seattle on Saturday. Both goals came in the first two professional starts for Wenger, the No. 1 overall selection in this year’s SuperDraft.
  • The Dynamo boast two of the three 2010 MAC Hermann Award finalists, the top individual honor in American collegiate soccer. Will Bruin (Indiana) and Colin Rolfe (Louisville) both finished their collegiate careers with 33 goals apiece. In his sophomore MLS season, Bruin has already surpassed his entire rookie-year productivity with eight goals in just 14 games, while Rolfe is still waiting to make his professional debut.
  • Impact midfielder Felipe has two goals and an assist in his last five games. He is the only field player to play every minute of every match for the expansion side.
  • Despite a woeful away showing, Montreal has posted a respectable record at home. The Impact are 3-1-2 in games played in Montreal.
  • Both of these teams are undefeated in new home stadiums. Houston is 3-0-1 in brand new BBVA Compass Stadium, and Montreal defeated Seattle 4-1 in the first game at the recently renovated Stade Saputo.
