(Saturday, April 26, 2014)

From The Sports Network

Final Score: D.C. United 4, FC Dallas 1

Washington, D.C. (SportsNetwork.com) - Fabian Espindola scored twice at RFK Stadium on Saturday to guide D.C. United to a 4-1 demolition of 10-man FC Dallas.

The home side fell behind early on, but Zach Lloyd's first-half ejection helped Espindola net two goals and add an assist to give United its third win in its last four outings.

D.C. United (3-2-2) climbs to 11 points on the season while FC Dallas (5-2-1) drops its match in its last three contests.

Mauro Diaz gave FC Dallas the lead after just 13 minutes when he feigned a shot to ease past Christian Fernandez and slotted one past the on-rushing Bill Hamid.

But the match turned in United's favor six minutes before the halftime interval when Zach Lloyd was sent off for a second caution of the game.

The hosts managed to take advantage of the extra man, leveling the score just before the break when Espindola nodded home a fabulous cross from Eddie Johnson.

The second half belonged to United as the home side netted three goals in the span of nine minutes.

Bobby Boswell produced the go-ahead goal at the hour mark, hammering home a rebound off of a save by Chris Seitz.

Sean Franklin added to United's lead four minutes later, getting on the end of Espindola's cross to poke a shot past Seitz.

Espindola then put the finishing touches on a glittering scoreline by taking a layoff from Chris Rolfe in the 69th minute and stuffing a shot into the back of the net.
