HOUSTON - Darwin Quintero and Darwin Cerén scored and the short-handed Houston Dynamo beat FC Dallas 2-0 on Wednesday night.
Quintero rolled a left-footer just inside the post in the 20th minute.
Houston’s Maruo Manotas was shown a straight red card for a serious foul in first-half stoppage time and the Dynamo played a man down the rest of the way.
Houston (4-5-7) snapped six-game winless streak dating to a 2-1 win over Sporting Kansas City on Sept. 5.
Cerén converted a penalty kick in the 83rd minute. It was the 30-year-old midfielder’s first goal of the season and the fifth of his career.
Dallas (5-4-6) is winless in four games.
