FC Dallas got three first half goals, including two from newcomer Michael Barrios in route to a 4-1 win over the Oklahoma City Energy FC on Tuesday night in the fourth round of the 2015 Lamar Hunt US Open Cup.

FC Dallas came out with good energy in this one at the home field of TCU's women's soccer program in Fort Worth, Texas. The first Dallas goal came 20 minutes into the match as Fabian Castillo raced down the sideline into the penalty box where he beat one defender on the end line before spraying a pass across the goal to David Texeira, who would easily finish home the game's first goal.

Dallas didn't stop with that goal as Barrios would pick up his first goal in a Dallas uniform in the 34th minute. Barrios was able to finish a chance into an empty net after 17-year-old Alejandro Zendejas fired a shot from the left side of net towards the back post.

Barrios would add his second goal just moments later in the 36th minute as FC Dallas goalkeeper Chris Seitz took control of a OKC cross and quickly launched the ball outside to Barrios. The Colombian would beat a couple defenders before firing a shot that would find the back of the net.

Dallas would get a fourth goal just after halftime as Barrios would be the one setting up Texeira this time around. In the 51st minute, Barrios beat two defenders on the left wing. He then crossed the ball into the penalty area where Texeira was knock a first-time volley into the back of the net.

Oklahoma City would get one goal in this one as they scored in the 82nd minute by Danni Konig.

Dallas will advance to the fifth round of the 2015 US Open Cup and they will find out their opponent on Thursday.
