FC Dallas winless streak hits 12

This should have been the one.  The almost three month long, 12 game winless streak was to finally come to an end.  The only team in the MLS with a worse record than FC Dallas was coming to town to play in front of a huge crowd.  Star David Ferreira was returning from a long injury absence.  Everything was in place.


Even an early goal from Zach Loyd in the fifth minute could not hold up.  A Daniel Hernandez corner was cleared to Jackson 35 yards from goal. The Brazilian sent a curling ball to Andrew Jacobson, whose smart header back across the box was in turn headed home by Zach Loyd for his second goal of the year.

The lead would not last though as Toronto evened the game before halftime.  A cross from Terry Dunfield was never effectively cleared with the ball eventually falling to former Dallas man Eric Avila. Avila shook Loyd and fired in a cross that Danny Koevermans flicked past Kevin Hartman and into the net for his ninth goal of the season.

In the 57th minute, a moment 15 months in the making finally happened as 2010 MLS MVP David Ferreira made his return to the pitch for the first time since breaking his ankle on April 23, 2011.  Ferreira instantly energized FCD, finding Brek Shea running into space several times, but after the initial burst TFC began to take control and get on the front foot.The Canadian side enjoyed the lion’s share of possession in the last 30 minutes, with the best chance coming on an 84th-minute header by Koevermans saved well by a diving Hartman.

Things get considerably tougher now as conference leading San Jose comes to town on Saturday.
