Player ratings as Driussi strengthens his MVP bid

Austin FC continued their brilliant start to the 2022 season with a 2-1 comeback win away at Texas rivals Houston Dynamo.

The Verde and Black came into this match with 17 points from their first eight games, losing just eleven.

But Austin fell behind within six minutes as Dynamo striker Sebastian Fereira scored a sensational goal from the halfway line, catching Brad Stuver off his line after a poor clearance from the goalkeeper. Stuver picked up an injury for his efforts to keep the ball out and had to be stretched off the field.

But the visitors quickly got a foothold and after missing a number of chances, finally drew level as Daniel Pereira volleyed home his first-ever professional goal at the back post from an Ethan Finlay cross on 39 minutes.
