Add one more to the winless streak for FC Dallas.

Wednesday night the Hoops dropped their fifth game out of their last six as they stumbled on the road 2-1 to the LA Galaxy.

LA got two first half goals from Robbie Keane and Homegrown forward Gyasi Zardes on the way to winning their third game of the season.

FC Dallas would pull one back in the second half from rookie Tesho Akindele.

Keane would get the home side on the board first with a ridiculous goal in the 24th minute. Keane found a ton of open real estate in the Dallas defense as he took a ball from Zardes, made a couple cuts around Matt Hedges and Jair Benitez before firing off a massive shot by Raul Fernandez.

The goal was Keane's 40th MLS goal with the Galaxy.

Zardes doubled up the Galaxy lead right before the halftime whistle in the 44th minute. Juninho sent in a great ball in behind the FCD defense to the open head of Zardes. The Galaxy Homegrown was wide open in the penalty box as he redirected the cross into the back of the net.

Akindele would give FC Dallas some life in the second half as the rookie made a smart run in the penalty box and was able to get on the end of a Jair Benitez cross. Akindele was a bit offside on the goal but luckily for FCD the linesman's flag would stay down.

FCD struggled to create quality chances in the first half despite outshooting the Galaxy. Castillo had a number chances on the ball to test LA but failed to get a good enough touch on the ball in the end to test LA.

FC Dallas will return to action this weekend as they stay on the road when they visit Real Salt Lake on Saturday.
