FC Dallas limps into playoffs with 4-2 loss

FC Dallas took a makeshift squad to San Jose for the 2011 regular season MLS finale on Saturday night and limped away 4-2 losers.  Coach Schellas Hyndman elected to leave several starters at home to rest  for the upcoming MLS playoffs and take arguably the easier route through the Eastern Conference playoffs.

If FC Dallas had won they could have ended up in the Western Conference draw.  Instead they'll go to the east as a wildcard.  The Western Conference has been far superior to the east this year.  Brek Shea, Jackson, Kevin Hartman, Daniel Hernandez all skipped the trip. Now FC Dallas will face the 10th place club in a playoff game on Wednesday night at Pizza Hut Park.  It looks to be either Houston or New York depending on the Sunday result between Houston and Los Angeles.

The game in San Jose was a wild affair with plenty of goals.  San Jose, who missed the playoffs, clearly wanted to finish the season on a winning note and please the home fans.   They blasted the game open with four first half goals in a 12 minute span.  Chris Wondolowski notched his 16th goal of the MLS season in the flurry, while Simon Dawkins scored twice.

FC Dallas tried to make a game of it in the second half as George John and Ruben Luna found the back of the net.  It was young Ruben Luna's first MLS goal.  It also could have been George John's final regular season MLS game as several clubs from the Europe are after his services for next year.
