Ballgame! FC Dallas wins 3-0
Some really positive things out of the club today in the attack and more importantly in the defense by getting the clean sheet. We’ll have plenty more on this game coming up
And a third! Lamah again!
Make it 2-0! (58th minute)
Oh Urruti (48th minute)
Gotta do better than this in front of goal.
Red card - Clint Dempsey (38th minute)
After a video review, the Sounders are down to ten men after Dempsey elbowed Jacori Hayes in the nether regions.
GOAL! 20th minute - Roland Lamah
Here we go, kickoff:
About what we’d expect from FC Dallas. The big difference we’re seeing is Roland Lamah in for Santiago Mosquera. Another note we just gathered from pregame warm ups is that Victor Ulloa was a late scratch.
After almost two weeks off, FC Dallas is back in action as they host the Seattle Sounders. Both teams are looking to bounce back after disappointing season openers, and more recently for the Sounders, a disappointing exit from the Concacaf Champions League on Wednesday in Mexico.
FC Dallas notes:
Last time out. The two sides met late in the season back in the fall where they ended in a 0-0 draw at Toyota Stadium. Seattle is 3-4-5 in all-time trips to Frisco.
Building chemistry. Three games into the year, FC Dallas has shown struggles defensively with their communication and chemistry. The club has given up four goals in those three matches so far.
Key player. Mauro Diaz. He has shown well in the past against Seattle but with the offensive struggles so far this season, Dallas needs a little Mauro-magic early on in this one to get them going.
