FC Dallas ended their three game road trip with a third straight loss as they fell 1-0 to Toronto FC on Saturday night.

Toronto made the first breakthrough in the 28th minute on a Tsubasa Endoh goal. As expected, Sebastian Giovinco was the catalyst on the goal after he got the ball from Michael Bradley. Giovinco placed a perfect ball to Endoh who found the back of the net for his first goal of the season.

In the 55th minute Dallas had one of their best chances of the game on a corner kick from Mauro Diaz. The out swinging ball met the head of Maynor Figueroa but the ball would take a small deflection and out of play.

Dallas continued in the attack with another good chance in the 65th minute on a counter attack lead by Diaz. The Dallas playmaker made one touch by a defender before chipping a ball over the Toronto defense to the run of Fabian Castillo. The Colombian was free in on goal but Clint Irwin made himself big to keep Castillo from scoring.

Toronto nearly dubbed their lead in the 87th minute on a hard shot by Giovinco. The Italian forced Jesse Gonzalez to swat away the shot. The play injured Gonzalez forcing Ryan Hollingshead to play in goal for the final few minutes since FCD had used up all three of their subs.

FC Dallas returns home next week as they host Portland on Wednesday and then Seattle on Saturday.
