FC Dallas squanders late lead to CD Guadalajara

FC Dallas once again allowed squandered a late lead.  This time it was to Mexican powerhouse Chivas of Guadalajara as a 1-0 lead slipped away in the final 10 minutes of a 2-1 exhibition loss in front of 10,689 at Pizza Hut Park.   Chivas midfielder Ramon Morales converted a penalty kick in the 82nd minute, and Marco Fabian scored on a breakaway in the 86th minute, as the lead FC Dallas held for much of the match disappeared.

Juan Toja scored for Dallas in the 21st minute off a corner kick from Andre Rocha.  FC Dallas coach Schellas Hyndman, who was leaning toward a mix of starters and reserves, instead opened with a lineup that would challenge Chivas. Leading scorer Kenny Cooper and Pablo Ricchetti, nursing an injured left foot, were the only regulars who did not see action.   Chivas dominated possession from the start. Even after Toja's goal, Dallas' lead never seemed safe.   In the 81st, Antonio Salazar was fouled by defender Michael Dello-Russo as Salazar charged through the penalty area. Morales fired the ensuing penalty kick past a diving Dario Sala.

Five minutes later, Dallas' Anthony Wallace made a bad pass that Fabian intercepted and took down the field. Fabian easily beat Sala on a one-on-one for the winning goal.   Chivas returns to Guadalajara having gone 1-1 in its short tour through the US. The Mexican club lost to the New York Red Bulls, 1-0, on Wednesday in Glendale, Ariz.
