Dallas Blows Late 2-0 Lead to Draw Chivas 2-2

A slow first half got followed up by a wild second half as FC Dallas blows a 2-0 lead to draw Chivas USA 2-2.

Juan Augdelo scored in the final seconds of the match to tie the game up. Chivas came back just minutes before hand with a goal from Laurent Courtois' cheeky goal.

Chivas was quickly able to undo all the hard work that Dallas had done just minutes before the late collapse.

The first Dallas goal came in the 73rd minute when David Ferreira found a wide open Jackson Goncalves in behind the Chivas defense. It was Jackson's forth goal of the season.

A few minutes later Ferreira would find his ninth assist on the season by sliding a perfect ball on the near side line to Fabian Castillo. The Colombian youngster had no problem finding extra space around the Chivas defense before beating Tim Melia on the far post for the game's second goal.

FC Dallas came out firing in the first half with Jackson Goncalves and David Ferreira each getting a couple good chances in front of keeper Tim Melia.

But Chivas took control of the first half with a pair of chances from Juan Agudelo. Chivas found a couple holes in the Dallas midfield and defense and really exploited the sideline occupied by Carlos Rodriguez. Thankfully for Dallas fans none of Chivas' chances were on goal in the first half.

It was a little different story in the second half as each team came out with a little more urgency about their play.

Chivas had multiple chances in the first ten minutes of the second half and had it not been for Kevin Hartman coming up huge on a couple chances, it would have been a different game.

Dallas was able to turn the tables a bit midway through the second half as Fabian Castillo, Jackson, David Ferreira and Blas Perez all took turns on goal.

Between the two Dallas goals, the game got a bit testy between both squads. Ferreria and defender Ben Zemanski got into a bit of a tussle that caused both teams to go a bit crazy. But after all the pushing and shoving happened, no cards were shown.
