FC Dallas needed more than a point on Sunday evening but that is all they’ll leave with as they drew New York City FC 1-1.

The two sides split points in a foul-filled game that saw 29 fouls between the two clubs.

City took the lead one minute into the match on a goal from Valentín Castellanos. Maxi Morales and Anton Tinnerholm connected with Castellanos in the middle of the penalty box and NYC striker easily beat Jesse Gonzalez.

Dallas had a chance at a penalty kick right before halftime as Michael Barrios was brought down in the penalty box but the center official opted not to go to the video review.

Dallas responded in the 66th minute on a goal from Ondrasek. Paxton Pomykal took a shot at the top of the penalty box and it was deflected right to Cobra who scored his fifth goal of the season.

Instant reaction: This was a weird game in general. The first half definitely was rocked with the injury to Brandon Servania, which lead to Pomykal being subbed on early. His energy brought a lot of life to the attack in the final 15 minutes of the half. Dallas really looked better in the second half as they pressed for the game-tying goal. In the end, it is pretty disappointing that they couldn’t secure three full points on the night.

Man of the match: Cobra probably deserves a shout here with the goal. His pressure in the penalty box did cause some issues for City on the night and it paid off with his goal.

What’s next for FC Dallas: After a tough three games in eight day stretch, FC Dallas will finish out the regular season with two Sunday afternoon games. Up first is a road trip to Denver to battle the Colorado Rapids.
