MLS Game Summary - FC Dallas at Seattle



(Sunday, Oct. 21, 2012)

From The Sports Network

Final Score: Seattle 3, FC Dallas 1

Seattle, WA (Sports Network) - FC Dallas saw its playoff hopes come to an end on Sunday as the club sustained a 3-1 defeat against Seattle Sounders FC at CenturyLink Field.

A loss by Vancouver against Portland earlier Sunday night left the door open for Dallas to remain in the hunt for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.

But as the match entered the second half knotted at 1-1, Seattle surged ahead on the hour mark through Brad Evans, who scored his second goal of the game, while Mauro Rosales wrapped up the win for Seattle with a goal 11 minutes from time.

The result not only hands Vancouver the last playoff spot in the West, but it also moves Seattle into second place along with Real Salt Lake with one game remaining in the regular season.

Seattle controlled play for most of the first half and earned a penalty kick on the half-hour mark when Dallas defender Hernan Pertuz pulled down Fredy Montero inside the box.

Evans stepped forward and sent goalkeeper Kevin Hartman the wrong way, but Dallas equalized against the run of play shortly before halftime as Blas Perez pounced on a loose ball inside the six-yard box.

A draw would have been enough to keep Dallas alive into next weekend, but Evans found the net for a second time in the 60th minute after a nice ball from Christian Tiffert, and the visitors had no way back following Rosales' goal, which was set up by some good work from Montero.
