The much anticipated clash between Houston Dynamo and San Jose Earthquakes this weekend has been postponed due to the serious disruption from Hurricane Ike.

"Officials from the city approached us this morning and requested that we not move forward with Saturday's game in the interest of public safety," Dynamo president and general manager Oliver Luck said. "Although this is not an ideal situation for our organization, we feel it is the right thing to do for the region, given the circumstances. We'd like to thank officials from the city and from the university for their help."

Fans will have to wait until October 15th for the rescheduled match. San Jose Earthquakes fans will hope this disruption doesn’t effect the sides current winning form.
