HOUSTON (AP) -- Brad Davis scored in the 67th minute and the Houston Dynamo beat D.C. United 1-0 on Saturday in the first game at BBVA Compass Stadium.

Houston played its first seven games on the road as it waited for its 95 million stadium to reach completion. The opener drew a sellout crowd of 22,039, nearly all of them clad in orange.

The Dynamo dominated the game, outshooting D.C. United 10-1 and controlling possession throughout the second half.

Houston (3-3-2) snapped a five-match winless streak, while D.C. United (5-4-3) lost for the second time in five games.

Minority owner Oscar De La Hoya, former Dynamo President Oliver Luck and former Houston Mayor Bill White were among those introduced before the game. MLS Commissioner Don Garber also attended.
