Recapping The Rankings - A Wild Night

Super Raton needs to continue to score if this team wants a chance to climb back up. - Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

A magical (lucky?) affair against the Galaxy gives FCD hope for rising in the power rankings.

In what turned out to be one of the most entertaining matches of the season, FC Dallas fought back (after giving up the early lead) to tie the hated Galaxy in front of a raucous crowd. It's always good to pick up points at home, but will doing so in a very controversial manner have a big effect on the rankings? Let's see if the free-fall finally came to an end.

Comment: If Mauro Diaz is the future David Ferreira - as many expect - this Dallas team is heading in a different direction faster than advertised. Maybe just not soon enough.

Rank: 15 (last week 15)

Comment: Well, at least FCD managed to score goals in tying L.A. 3-3. Blas Perez was back to his predatory best with two tallies. The defense was another story, with the center of midfield looking especially soft after the substitution of Erick.

Comment: FC Dallas can thank a generous assistant referee for allowing two Blas Perez equalizers to stand, as the club clawed its way to a controversial 3-3 draw with LA Sunday night. The tie extended Dallas' winless streak to 10 matches, though, and preventing that from stretching to 11 won't be easy, with a visit to Jeld-Wen Field to take on Portland next up on the schedule.

Comment: In a high-paced, frenetic match with the Galaxy, FC Dallas benefited from some poor officiating to earn a point. Both of Blas Perez's goals in the second half should have been disallowed, but the assistant referee decided to keep his flag down. The draw extended the club's winless streak to 10 matches.

Comment: Note for the future: You should probably mark Landon Donovan when he is inside the penalty area, Dallas.
