Bernard's late goal sinks Dynamo

February 21, 2007

PUNTARENAS, Costa Rica -- Kurt Bernard scored in injury time to give Puntarenas a 1-0 victory over Major League Soccer's Houston Dynamo on Wednesday in the first leg of the CONCACAF Champions Cup quarterfinals.

The second leg will be played March 1 in College Station, Texas.

Houston defender Eddie Robinson was sent off in the 71st minute with his second yellow card, apparently for arguing with referee German Arredondo. Robinson challenged the Mexican official, who did not call a foul when Robinson appeared to be struck in the back of the head on a high ball into the penalty area.
