Dallas City defeats rival Fort Worth Vaqueros 3-0

Saturday presented local soccer fans a big rivalry game early in the new NPSL season.  The Fort Worth Vaqueros came into the match after tying Houston last weekend 1-1 in their home opener.  Meanwhile, Dallas City come in with an opening loss to the Dutch Lions followed by a midweek home victory over Liverpool Warriors.

Fort Worth opened as the aggressors looking dangerous on the wing through Hilton and commanding almost all the early possession.   Then bang. On their very first attack of the night Dallas City would score as a nice combination on the left wing would spring Ariel Mesa.  His early low cross would find Damian Rosales who prepped and fired low past Downes in goal for the Vaqueros.

 After 25 minutes of play it was clear Fort Worth had a class advantage in the midfield over their rivals.   The question was would dominating the middle of the park pay off over the course of the 90.  At the other end it appeared the Dallas attacking players were a little sharper than the Vaqueros back line.  An interesting match for sure tactical match.

Fort Worth would have a chance late in the opening half as Carbonell earned a dangerous free kick.  Rosales fired a curling left footed effort that went just wide of the near post.  Dallas City would immediately go the other way with Jorge DeLeon rounding the onrushing Downes but electing to pass rather than score the goal. A bad decision and the game went 1-0 to the break in favor of the home side.

Just like the opening half, Fort Worth came out flying after the restart.  They created two nice chances inside five minutes but Allan Salcido failed to hit the frame on either shot attempt. Another good chance came in the 55th as Halle turned a header on frame forcing Dallas keeper Erik Mozzo to push it over the crossbar for a corner. It was all Fort Worth as they pushed for the equalizer.

The game opened up as FW pushed forward harder.  Somehow the Dallas City back line was so out of position on one City attack that they presented a clean break away to Hilton who raced in on goal from midfield.  Once again the finish would let the Vaqueros down as he whizzed over the crossbar rather than electing to slot the ball home.

Another good Vaqueros combination through the middle left Hilton a clean shot from 18, but his low strike was smothered by Mozzo in the Dallas City goal.  Twenty five minutes to play and we would see if the Dallas defense could hold up under the constant pressure or find success against the stretched FW defense.

A counter attack in the 72nd would give Dallas City the breathing room they needed as Damian Rosales would notch his second goal of the evening.  Dallas caught the Vaqueros pushing and Rosales got in behind the FW defense for a clear break.  He smartly finished past Downes making it 2-0.

Only a minute later the game was put to bed as once again Rosales got in behind the Vaqueros right back.  Instead of finishing his hat trick Rosales squared for Jorge DeLeon to blast home from close range.  Game over with fifteen minutes to play.

It really was an interesting night in Dallas as the score line was nowhere indicative of the actual match.  The Vaqueros created many more attacks over the 90.  The difference was the clean finishing for Dallas versus several completely wasted final balls from Fort Worth.  The two local soccer rivals will get right back at it on Tuesday night (weather permitting) in Fort Worth with an important rematch.
