Houston Dynamo left winger DaMarcus Beasley was honored by Major League Soccer on Tuesday as a recipient of the 2017 MLS Fair Play Award. Beasley was recognized for the award because he only committed 0.54 fouls per game. That was the lowest number of fouls per game in the entire MLS regular season.
Beasley had one assist for the Dynamo during the 2017 Major League Soccer regular season. It came in a 3-3 tie between the Dynamo and LA Galaxy on Sept. 27 as Beasley helped set up a goal by Tomas Martinez in the game's 26th minute. Beasley's assist came 23 minutes after he accidentally registered an own goal to open the scoring for the Galaxy.
The Dynamo are one of four teams left in the 2017 MLS Cup playoffs. They are joined by the Seattle Sounders, Columbus Crew and Toronto FC. Houston is playing Seattle in the Western Conference Final, while the Crew are playing Toronto FC in the Eastern Conference Final.
Houston will have their work cut out for themselves as Toronto and Seattle met in the 2016 MLS Cup Final, while Columbus scored four times in their first game of the Eastern Conference semi-finals in the 2017 MLS Cup playoffs against New York City FC.
