Ronaldo Pena scored his first goal for Houston Dynamo in a dramatic Texas derby draw against MLS high-flyers Dallas.

Venezuelan Pena equalised in the 88th minute as struggling Houston held Western Conference leaders Dallas to a 1-1 draw on Thursday.

Dallas – four points clear atop the west – looked to have snatched all three points when Michael Barrios broke the deadlock with seven minutes remaining in Houston.

Barrios outpaced and outmuscled Andrew Wenger before rolling the ball past Dynamo goalkeeper Joe Willis.

Houston, however, were not done as Pena responded five minutes later with a low shot from the edge of the box.

The draw snapped a run of five successive defeats, though the Dynamo remain winless in eight matches.

Thursday’s other fixture also ended all-square as Chicago Fire and Columbus Crew drew 1-1.

Niko Hansen’s 87th-minute strike cancelled out Nemanja Nikolic’s second-half opener for the Fire in Chicago.

The Fire are second from bottom in the Eastern Conference amid their nine-game winless streak, while the Crew are fourth and 11 points adrift of leaders Atlanta United.
