Erick Torres became the first Houston Dynamo player to find the back-of-the-net in four consecutive matches, as his hat trick helped the Dynamo to whitewash the New York Red Bulls 4-1 at the Bbva Compass Stadium. Houston Dynamo were initially a goal down when RBNY Bradley Wright-Philips scored in the 13th minute, but that lead was short-lived as Dylan Remick promptly responded giving the host an immediate level up. Five minutes before the break, Erick Torres took over from there sending home the lead in what was a “controversial penalty-kick” and later adding two more goals in the second-half making it 4-1.

Torres on fire

So far this season, Erick Torres has been more fantastic than he was in past seasons and his performances against RBNY only served as the latest reminder of his tremendous contributions on goal for Dynamo. Certainly, Erick “Cubo” Torres netted a hat trick that will obviously draw attention to him, but he was also a significant threat throughout the ninety minutes as he single-handedly wreaked havoc against the Red Bulls defense that barely contained him.

Dylan Remick immediate equalizer

Erick Torres deserve his share of commendation for his impressive display, likewise Dylan Remick for heading home the corner-kick cross that promptly tied up the scoreline for the Dynamo. Assuming that goal didn't come so quick after Bradley Wright-Philips got the opener, the New York Red Bulls might have just gained on that one goal momentum, but unfortunately, they didn't and Dynamo scooped all the three points emphatically.

The Red Bulls defense lacked coordination

This was not actually the defensive outing the New York Red Bulls initially had in mind. Not only did the RBNY concede a quick equalizer shortly after taking the lead for 60 seconds but their entire defense on Saturday evening was apparently not equal to the task, especially when Damien Perrinelle substituted an injured Aurelien Collins in the thirty-ninth minute, compelling New York Red Bulls goalkeeper Luis Robles to make several massive saves to keep the RBNY from further harm.
