HOUSTON -- Cam Weaver scored for the Houston Dynamo and Mike Magee scored two minutes later for the Chicago Fire as the teams played to a 1-1 tie Saturday night.

The Dynamo (8-6-6) are unbeaten in three straight games, while the Fire (7-9-4) are unbeaten in two consecutive games after losing two straight.

Houston took a 1-0 lead in the 61st minute as Weaver, who was inside the goalkeeper's box, kicked in a pass from Brad Davis from the right box. It was Weaver's first goal since May 28, 2011.

Chicago tied it at 1-1 in the 63rd minute on Magee's 13th goal of the season. Patrick Nyarko set up Magee's goal with a cross from the right box into the middle goalkeeper's box where Magee nudged it in.

Bobby Boswell appeared to give the Dynamo a 1-0 lead in the 18th minute as Boswell's header from the penalty area went inside the near post, but the goal was disallowed as Boswell was called offside.

Houston midfielder Andrew Driver left the game in the 15th minute because of a right Achilles injury.

Brad Davis replaced Driver. Chicago midfielder Alex left the game in the 41st minute due to an undisclosed injury, with Dan Paladini taking his spot in the lineup.
