FC Dallas began the month of July with an emphatic win over one of the top teams in MLS with a 3-1 win over Toronto FC.

Roland Lamah added two more goals and Maxi Urruti added his tenth of the season in the win.

Lamah put FC Dallas up early in the 5th minute. Maynor Figueroa set up the play with a long ball through the Toronto defense to Urruti. The Argentine then laid the ball back to the to Lamah who was wide open to score his fifth goal of the season.

Lamah doubled up his tally in the 21st minute. Mauro Diaz sent in a long ball through the Toronto defense to find Lamah who beat Chris Mavinga on the right wing before slotting home a shot to the far post by Alex Bono.

Toronto nearly got on the board in the 40th minute on a counter attack. Michael Bradley split a pair of Dallas defenders to find Armando Cooper in the middle of the field. Cooper then played it on the right to Sebastian Giovinco. The former MLS MVP’s shot ended up going just wide of the far post.

Ten minutes into the second half Toronto cut Dallas’ lead in half with a goal from Marco Delgado. Giovinco got the ball on the left side of the goal. He then played it across the goal where Delgado was waiting to finish it.

Dallas was able to get an insurance goal in the 77th minute on a counter attack from Michael Barrios and Urruti. Carlos Gruezo helped set up the play as he found Barrios free in a two-on-three situation with Urruti. The Colombian got the ball and then played it through to Urruti who was able to beat his defender and then hammer it home past Bono.

FC Dallas returns to action next week as they host their annual July 4th match when they take on D.C. United.
