FC Dallas grabs important road point in Toronto

FC Dallas visited Toronto FC Saturday and faced off against the best home side in MLS.  Toronto entered the game unbeaten at home in eight matches.  FC Dallas has shown they are a very good road team as they entered unbeaten on the road in six games.  The only result at the end of the day is that both teams extended their streaks after the tie.

The game was marred by heavy rains the entire opening half and a sloppy half it was.  There were more sloppy passes and clumsy tackles than anything and the game went scoreless to halftime.  The second half saw the weather improve and the play got better as well.

A pivotal point in the second half came when FC Dallas centerback George John had to be removed with an injury.  It took less than three minutes for his replacement, rookie Zach Loyd, to be beaten for the opening goal.   A good pass to Maicon Santos caught Loyd out of position and Santos raced in on goal where he hit a low shot to the near post that surpised Kevin Hartman as it zipped into the net.

It looked dire for Dallas, but they set about trying to get the equalizer.  Just as they had in Seattle two weeks earlier they would find it.  In the 77th minute some sloppy play from Toronto in the back gifted FC Dallas a corner kick which they would cash in.  David Ferreira whipped in the corner and Milton Rodriguez headed it home.

With the draw, FC Dallas has been to the two hardest road venues in MLS and earned two ties in the last three weeks.  The team currently sits third in the Western Conference trailing Real Salt Lake and Los Angeles.
