Boniek Garcia and Christian Ramirez named to MLS Team of the Week

Houston Dynamo forward Christian Ramirez and midfielder Boniek García have been named to the Team of the Week for Week 29, Major League Soccer announced today.

Both players played crucial roles in Houston’s 2-1 come-from-behind victory over Orlando City SC on Saturday night at BBVA Stadium. The win was Houston’s second in a row at home under interim head coach Davy Arnaud, and it kept the Dynamo’s playoff hopes alive as they head out for a two-game road trip this week.

Ramirez earned Man of the Match honors on Saturday as he set up the equalizing goal with a pinpoint cross in the 70th minute that allowed teammate Alberth Elis to head the ball into the net, and then tapped in the game-winner three minutes later with a crafty run inside the penalty area that allowed him to get on the end of a pass from forward Mauro Manotas in front of an empty net.
