FC Dallas on Loan: Sanchez's Shutout Streak Ends

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Controversial goal ends the shutout streak for the young FC Dallas loanee.

The Fort Lauderdale Strikers extended their unbeaten streak to six games but missed out on taking over the NASL lead when they were held to a 1-1 tie at FC Edmonton on Sunday.

Richard Sanchez made several diving saves, but his clean-sheet run came to an end at 353 minutes when the Eddies opened the scoring in contentious fashion. In the 38th minute, FC Edmonton were allowed to retake a free kick just outside the box after the referee ruled high winds had affected the first attempt.

Former Columbus Crew and Real Salt Lake trialist Lance Laing scored on the second attempt, and the subsequent protests by Ft. Lauderdale led to the ejection of their head coach and assistant coach along with forward Walter Restrepo.

Fellow FC Dallas loanee Bradlee Baladez came off the bench in the 75th minute in this one. But his effort up front for the Strikers was not enough to help push them over the top in this one.

The Strikers will battle for the top place in the league as they take on the New York Cosmos this Saturday, September 21st at Lockhart Stadium at 7:30 p.m. ET. This match will mark the first time in over 30 years that the Strikers and Cosmos have faced off at Lockhart Stadium.
