MLS Game Summary - Montreal at FC Dallas



(Saturday, April 14, 2012)

From The Sports Network

Final Score: FC Dallas 2, Montreal 1

Frisco, TX (Sports Network) - Brek Shea picked a good time to score his first goal of the season for FC Dallas.

Shea scored in the 88th minute Saturday as FC Dallas rallied from a goal down in the second half to defeat the expansion Montreal Impact, 2-1, at FC Dallas Stadium in Major League Soccer.

Bernardo Corradi gave Montreal the lead off a penalty kick in the 61st minute, but Blas Perez scored his third of the season the 76th and Shea followed with his first late in normal time.

Dallas (3-2-1) won its second successive match with late heroics. Ugo Ihemelu scored in stoppage time in a 1-0 win over the New England Revolution on April 5 in the club's last match.

Perez had one of the few good scoring chances in the first half, but Montreal goalie Donovan Ricketts tipped his header over the bar to prevent a goal.

Felipe Martins had a rare chance for Montreal early in the second half, but a shot from a tough angle on the left found the side netting.

Montreal (1-5-1) broke through near the hour mark, as Davy Arnaud was fouled in the area and Corradi drove the penalty high to the middle of the net for his first MLS goal.

Dallas was much more assertive after falling behind, and the tying goal came in the 76th after George John headed off the crossbar and Perez headed in the rebound from close range.

Shea followed with the match-winner when Perez flicked a header on to Fabian Castillo, who then put Shea through into the area. Shea beat Ricketts for his 17th career goal as Dallas secured its third win of the season.

Montreal has lost all five of its road games, but will try to end that streak at D.C. United on Wednesday. FC Dallas returns to action April 21 at Vancouver Whitecaps FC.
