Toronto (2-10-3) is 1-1-3 under Paul Mariner, who succeeded Aron Winter as head coach.

DYNAMO 2, UNION 1: At Houston, Brian Ching scored on a penalty kick in the 83rd minute as Houston (6-5-5) won for the second time in its past four games, while Philadelphia (3-9-2) has lost three of the past four games.
