The Houston Dynamo face an uphill struggle to advance in the CONCACAF Champions League after a disappointing 1-1 draw with Atlante FC of Mexico in the first leg of their quarterfinal series Tuesday evening at Robertson Stadium. Houston took the lead in the 34th minute on Bobby Boswell’s header, and should have gone to halftime at least another goal up. But they instead conceded a devastating away goal to Atlante’s Gabriel Pereyra in the 82nd minute.

“For our first competitive game, I thought we played well. Obviously, the 1-1 makes it more difficult as we head down to Cancun. It’s a good result for them, it’s not a terrible result for us. We just need to win a game away from home, which we’ve done before,” Dynamo coach Dominic Kinnear said.
