Dynamo Signs Honduran International Carlos Costly

Maybe it’s a Texas thing, but they love them some big strikers in Houston.

Just days after the 6-2, 200-pound Will Bruin went down with a knee injury, the Dynamo has announced the acquisition of 6-3, 190-pound Honduran forward Carlos Costly, who will join 6-4 Cam Weaver and 6-1 Brian Ching in the Houston strike force.

Costly arrives on loan from Mexican first-division side Atlas, and is signed for the remainder of the 2011 season. He is not classified as a Designated Player.

The Dynamo (6-7-9) hope Costly, who has 18 goals in 48 appearances for Honduras, can take advantage of service from wingers Brad Davis and Colin Clark and boost the Houston offense for the stretch run.

He also won’t hurt at the gate in Houston, where 27,600 turned up for a May 29 friendly at Robertson Stadium between Costly’s Honduras and El Salvador.
