HOUSTON (AP) -- Will Bruin scored in the 16th minute to end Houston's scoreless streak at 334 minutes and the Dynamo went on to tie the Portland Timbers 1-1 on Sunday.

Gaston Fernandez had a first-half goal for Portland (0-3-5).

Bruin gave Houston (2-4-2) the lead, finding space in front of the goal and heading home a cross from Brad Davis. The Dynamo are winless in their last six games.

Fernandez tied it in the 33rd minute. He took advantage of a fortunate deflection off Davis and tucked a first-touch shot into the upper corner.
