Frustrating may be a tough term to use when describing what happened Saturday night for FC Dallas. Most of the game FC Dallas struggled to get anything forward as they came from behind to draw Chivas USA 1-1.

Fabian Castillo had several chances on the night as he went from being a goat to a hero. In the 82nd minute, Castillo made a clever run off a cross from Jair Benitez after a corner kick was cleared out. It was his second goal of the season against Chivas USA.

The draw helped end a four game losing streak for FC Dallas.

The visitors bunkered defensively on the night, causing issues for the Dallas attack. That left some space up front for Chivas to work with on counters and the Goats made it count in the 60th minute. Erick Torres scored his ninth goal of the season to help put Chivas on top in the second half. In the 60th minute Martin Rivero switched the point of attack to Mauro Rosales on the right side. The veteran midfielder quickly slotted a ball back to the top of the six yard box to Torres who finished off the shot.

Rivero nearly doubled Chivas' lead in the 70th minute. He took a ball right at the top of the 18-yard box from Torres and fired off a shot that forced FC Dallas keeper Raul Fernandez to make a diving save.

Neither side created a lot of chances in the first 20 minutes of the match. FC Dallas dominated the possession in the early stages of the game holding a nearly 70% percentage line during that stretch. The first real chance of the game came in the 28th minute from Castillo. The Colombian took a pass into the penalty box but his shot against Chivas keeper Dan Kennedy wasn't enough to test the veteran keeper.

FC Dallas returns to action on Wednesday when they visit the LA Galaxy.
