Michael Barrios came off the bench to help score the game-winner that hit off Modou Jadama to help send FC Dallas into the Round of 16.
Three minutes in FC Dallas nearly got on the board with a chance from Ryan Hollingshead. Coy Craft got the ball near the top of the penalty box where he laid the ball off for Hollingshead. The veteran defender took a quick one-touch shot that just went over the crossbar.
Craft was able to finally make the breakthrough for FC Dallas in the 31st minute. Hollingshead played the ball into Craft, who then took a shot from about 20 yards out to beat the Tulsa keeper.
Tulsa was able to respond in the 59th minute with a goal from former MLSer Kosuke Kimura. The former Colorado and New York defender snuck in behind a couple Dallas defenders before firing a shot from the top of the penalty box to beat Chris Seitz.
Dallas had a couple chances shortly after the Tulsa goal to go back in the lead. Both Tesho Akindele and Cristian Colman were put in good spots by Mauro Diaz in front of goal but neither were able to put the ball on frame.
The final goal came in the dying seconds of the match as Diaz drove the ball up the field in the final minute of the match. Diaz sent it wide to Barrios who then crossed the ball to the far post for Colman. His shot would get saved out to Victor Ulloa. The Dallas Homegrown then played the ball back out wide to Barrios who put in a one-timer on goal that hit off Jadama.
FC Dallas will find out who they play in the next round during tomorrow’s draw.
FC Dallas returns to action on Saturday as they travel to Vancouver to battle the Whitecaps.
