FC Dallas has continued to rebound from their derby loss as they managed to record their first road win of the year on Saturday. Dallas managed a big 3-0 win over DC United at RFK Stadium, in which they never looked troubled.
It took just 14 minutes for FC Dallas to be able to open the scoring as an error from DC United let them in. Taylor Kemp and Kofi Opare failed to communicate well, allowing Max Urruti to jump in and steal possession, setting up Michael Barrios who ran at goal and curled in a shot past the keeper.
The visitors kept on attacking as they went for the match and they added their second goal in the 28th minute of the match. Mauro Diaz was able to send a ball in for Barrios , who seemed to have too heavy a first touch but he ran down the ball quickly, keeping it alive and shot past the keeper.
That was all the action in the first half, as FC Dallas continued to control possession but DC United were lifting defensively. Despite that defensive lift from DC they just could not make any real threat on the FC Dallas goal, as the half ended with FC Dallas 2-0 up.
The third goal came early in the second half, with Urruti getting the goal just seven minutes in to the half. Fabian Castillo sent in a cross for Urruti, who played the ball down, despite heavy pressure from DC United, and buried the chance, just getting inside the post.
In the 64th minute DC United had their best chance of the match when Matt edges slipped over allowing the opportunity. Fabian Espindola was able to chest the ball down for Lamar Neagle who shot on the run but was denied by a Chris Seitz save.
The 66th minute saw an even better chance for DC United, after they were awarded a penalty, which allowed Espindola to step up only for Seitz to read the shot and make the save. That would be as close as DC United would get, with the match finishing 3-0 to FC Dallas.
